JD: The Jordanians have been holding a military exercise in preparation for a war with Israel. What do we know about that and how key is this?

DD: Well again Jimmy we’ve seen the relations between Israel and Jordan deteriorate over the past several years really. Of course strong condemnation of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s declaration that Israeli communities in the Jordan Valley would be in next to Israel. That Israel would never alleviate that valley which as you pointed out a few weeks ago is considered to be the front line defense for Israel. We have not just Jordan to the east right along the border but a little bit beyond that is Iraq and then of course Iran.
