"Yom Kippur War of 1967"

I.   Yom Kippur of 1967
A.   Egypt
B.   Picking Yom Kippur was incredibly stupid because everyone was at home; if they chose Rosh Hoshanna everyone is on vacation somewhere else
II.   October 13, 1968
A.   US understood that a year after the Yom Kippur War of 1967 Israel was in dire straights (sometimes called a second holocaust)
B.   With French help, Israel had developed Weapons of Mass Destruction (Nuclear Warheads) and the US didn't want a desperate and depressed nation to have WMD with out the US having some aid
C.   America always kept Israel close because they were suspicious of their intentions and hopeful of their potential
III.   There are no more wars because the wars are too costly for the Arabs because of the money and in personal because the best and brightest are the ones who go to war
