Force Projection

A very animated and confident Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu handles a timid looking American General Martin Dempsey. Netanyahu has all the motion and animation. He's larger. The general stands rigidly smaller behind his ample decoration and ornamentation. He looks at Netanyahu with a supplicant's eyes.

Or maybe the image is a fleeting one, an unrepresentative photo that does not convey the true strength the general brings to the encounter.

"U.S. military chief in Israel for talks on Iran"

update 02.25.12: General Dempsy is, however, able to talk sense about Israel and Iran. What is not clear is whether it will make any difference.
