There is the threat, once again, of the United States being fully militarily involved in the Middle East. Over the past few years, under President Trump, we have slowly removed our forces from that ever deadly area of the world but it appears that we might be gearing up for action against, guess who? Iran. The U.S. military has sent forces, including an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Middle East in a move that our officials said was made to counter “clear indications” of threats from Iran not only to American forces in the region but to our allies in the area, which we must assume include Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in that part of the world.
Our Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo outlined this very clearly in his statement on CNBC that the U.S. deployment came in response to intelligence about potential Iranian attacks and our moves aimed to deter them and to be able to respond if necessary. “In the event that Iran decided to come after an American interest–whether it be in Iraq or Afghanistan or Yemen or any place in the Middle East, we are prepared to respond in an appropriate way. Our aim is not war.” We’ve also increased economic and financial pressure on Iran to cut off its money making oil exports and to limit its nuclear and missile programs in order to render that nation less deadly and to try to make it understand that this country will no longer play the game of shutting its eyes to the growing threat Iran poses to the world.
We have to understand that the first victim of any Iranian attack will surely be Israel. No matter how powerful the Jewish State is militarily it cannot sustain a lengthy war against a possibly nuclear armed, religiously-suicidal led Iran that has no consideration for its own losses but is motivated by the Koran to eliminate, at all costs, the infidel state, Israel. Iran was given, by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA) agreement with Western powers, in 2015, the right to pursue its nuclear arms production. Iran was also permitted by the naive West to invade and become a permanent occupying force in Syria, thereby planting itself militarily directly on Israel’s northern borders and together with its subordinate, Hezbollah, to constitute an immediate threat to Israel.
Israel needs a big, strong partner and the United States is finally assuming that role. Israel is a small, vulnerable, geographical dot on the map with few friends in the world. We are all taking deep breaths, saying our prayers that the threat of force by our nation finally sends the word to the belligerent, intolerant Mullahs of Iran that we will no longer play the game of sitting idly by and watching them run rampant across the Middle East. We hope (and again, pray) that this situation will end tranquilly and that peace, once again, will come not only to the Middle East, but to the whole world as well.
