A matter of time

Twice today we heard air raid sirens and entered our safety room, bomb shelters etc. (or just kept on doing what we were doing; some people could not care less, and too many people do not have any safety room or shelter to go to), part of the biggest war exercise ever, which has been taking place all week here. Such exercises have become a yearly routine since the Second Lebanon War (if I am not mistaken). Chances are that sooner rather than later we will be able to do all this for real once again. If you ask Israelis, many of them will tell you that it is only a matter of time before the next war (with Gaza, Lebanon/Hezbollah, and possibly Iran) breaks out. We are holding our breath.
