Rr

you can do.

Fanta s

I think

anything

positive

I do is

going to be counter-productive.

Very interesting. I agree. counter-productive.

And

I feel

anything

I might

do would be

K:

Exactly.

But I Ihink we' ve made major progress in that area.

You do. Fantastic. Pm even embarrassed you know when you' ve got everything else.

You know we' re trying to, it's a high wire act. The Israelis are letting us down by not winning as quickly as they should.

That's right.

Syrians.

K:

No, my judgment is that they' re going to leave the Egyptians alone but they haven't solved that problem because the Egyptians have put in massive anti-aircraft defenses so they can't use air to knock out the Egyptian tanks and they haven't got the artiHery because they counted so much on the air.
A

pity.

If I had to bet I would bet that they' re going to now go for Damascus.
Qh

in touch.

Great.

Take care.
