    “The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”

    US new sources have conflicting reports on this.

    At any rate I think it's unfortunate that your article will not be available to most Kossacks. I tend to believe that the Defense Department is on it's own trajectory, set by the Neocons. The ruckus over McChrystal is evidence of the tension.

    It might help if you reworked the article to focus on the reports of a build-up to a possible late summer action in the Middle East, and steered clear of the Neocon genealogy, though I found it interesting and well-sourced.

        As you can see, it can be pretty rough.

          beyond a shadow of a doubt that the HRs in this diary are abusive and against the guidelines.

          Trolling, defined, is not simply disagreeing with your opinion or the collective site opinion. It is engaging in behavior which is directly contrary to the stated goals of the site -- furthering the progressive Democratic agenda. There are a number of things which very clearly constitute "trolling", and which should be troll rated (and therefore deleted from the conversation) quite legitimately.

          1.  "Democrates suk" or any of the other derivations of true trolling by those of enfeebled brain. Don't argue, just zap them. More on this in a bit.
          1.  Advertisements or other thread spamming. Zero them out. Especially if a user is posting the same comment to multiple threads. The cause may be just; the behavior isn't.
          1.  Off-topic posts. There's entire threads devoted to being off-topic: the Open Threads. In other conversations, it is rude to interrupt a diary or story conversation with your own unrelated "threadjacking".
          1.  Proven-false information, conspiracy theories, or debunked talking points.
          1.  Personal attacks on other site users, including following them from thread to thread.

          Attempting to "out" the personal information of other site users. This isn't just trolling, but is expressly forbidden and will almost certainly result in immediate banning.

          1.  What all these things have in common is that they represent content that is irrelevant to the thread, or intentionally disruptive of the goals of the conversation, or seek to poison the atmosphere in which conversation can take place at all. That is trolling.

          this diary was a criticism of the extreme right-wing policies of perpetual war in the middle east.
