Forced teaming ...

One must know one's limitations. - Dirty Harry

There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know.

— Former US secretary of defense, Donald Rumsfeld

Situational Awareness applies.

Forced teaming, you know, when someone, particularly a stranger with bad intentions, forces you to team up whether you like it or not is one of the prime warning signs to get away from said entity without hesitation. Seems Bibi and his lust to stay out of jail, no matter the cost, is doing just that vis a vis the US when it comes to a possible war with Hezbollah, a non-state military force possessing much greater fire power than Hamas. As often stated before, the parallels to Custer and the Little Big Horn are too great to ignore save that Israel wants to drag the US into the fray to make sure they remain the hegemon of the Middle East in spite of the fact things are far different now as the threat to Israel is now existential no matter what Israel's insane far right government states to the contrary. 

Custer's lives on does he not?

Lest we forget, The Charge of the Light Brigade comes to mind here, right?
