Major-General Amir Eshel, who heads the Israeli army’s planning directorate, will fly to Beijing this week. Eshel, an air force pilot, will warn China of the international consequences of military action, particularly the potential disruption to oil supplies on which much of China’s manufacturing and international trade depend. Tougher sanctions, he will argue, are the lesser of two evils.
It appears that China may be seeing it is between a rock and a hard place. China also might not like this ultimatum from Israel. Hang tight folks, it’s about to get interesting.
