40 Years ago today, the Middle East's only democratic nation was surrounded on all sides by the forces of darkness. What happened? The Armies of Evil got their collective asses handed to them by a smaller force. The Israeli Air Force was out-numbered 4 to 1 in numbers of aircraft, and the combined Arab force was at least 20% larger in numbers of soldiers. Despite this, Israel inflicted a 27 to 1 kill ratio (in their favor), destroyed 400+ enemy aircraft, captured the Sinai Peninsula, the Golan Heights, Gaza, East Jerusalem, and more. Despite this, they decide to try again. (h/t LGF).
