Bully Of The Sandbox

The sandbox referenced in this post is the Middle East and the bully is Israel.

For decades Israel has been threatening Iran and most times with the media present he employs visual aids…..the drawing of a bomb to represent the Iranian nuke program and most recently the visual aid was a piece of a alleged Iranian drone shot down over Israeli airspace.  And BiBi did what he always does…threatens Iran……

“Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put the noose of terror around our neck,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday. “We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act, if necessary, not only against Iranian proxies that are attacking us but against Iran itself.” Netanyahu alleged Iran is attempting to “colonize” Syria, which is located between the two countries. As he spoke, he waved a piece of an Iranian drone recently downed on Israeli land. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif labeled the remarks “a cartoonish circus which does not even deserve a response.”

BiBi is threatening Lebanon, Iran, Syria and god know who else….

Israel lost a jet fighter not long ago and of course it was Iran that brought it down……

Personally, BiBi is a bully and all talk….yes they have been a force to be feared in the past….like I said in the past…..I do not think Israel will go to war with anyone……

It was not easy to trust the news reports that Syrian air-defence missiles targeted an Israeli F16-fighter jet and downed it in response to Israel shooting down an Iranian drone that, according to the Israelis, had entered their airspace. This happened, though, and a wide-scale war in the region was seen as inevitable, but neither Israel nor its main ally, the United States, are interested in such a conflict.

According to Israel, its response was the “largest and most significant strike in Syria since 1982.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to be trying to de-escalate the tension and avoid going into battle, in both his actions and remarks; so did the US. “Our policy is clear,” Netanyahu claimed. “Israel will defend itself against any aggression and any attempt to violate its sovereignty.” Although he took advantage of the sympathy generated by the incidents, all he did was order a strike similar to dozens that Israel has carried out in the past, which he knows very well do not prompt more than a few hollow comments from the Syrians and their Iranian allies.

Yes Israel has had several cross border ops but they have the US to hide behind…..

  1. Israel can only afford to be a bully because it has the US support behind its threats. If it ever ceases to be of use to America, then it might have to watch out.
    Best wishes, Pete.
