Most of us know about the wars in the Middle East….Syria, Iraq, and other regions….it has been all out war. During all this military action Israel has been attacking Syria under the radar, as they say.
Most of my readers know that Israel has been blaming Iran for everything that happens in the Middle East….well silently Israel has been eyeing Hezbollah as their next all out war…..yet again.
The writing is already on the wall: Israel will soon launch a military operation in Lebanon. Not a targeted attack on a weapons convoy or factory, but a simultaneous attack on Hezbollah’s missile production and launch sites. The operation will take place at the same time as, or immediately after, a series of assassinations of known Hezbollah operatives. That organization will, of course, react by launching a massive missile barrage at population centers in Israel, and Hamas may contribute its share in the south. Last week we were informed that missile interceptor systems have already been deployed throughout the country as part of a joint “drill” between the IDF and the U.S. military. Washington has already given a green light, or so we learn from Thomas Friedman’s most recent column — a faithful mouthpiece of American foreign policy.
This is a war that is slowly coming to a boil……and Trump has added a little more fuel with his latest nod toward Hezbollah…..yet another conflict that US troops will be tasked to fight….if for NO other reeason than to protect Israel from non-existent foes.
