US-Israeli wars in the Middle East

The US have allowed unfettered Israeli strikes against 200 targets in Syria and fired 800 missiles and mortar shells over the past year and a half.

The US-backed Saudis continue the terrible conflict and make for an even greater humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

At this moment there is a dangerous situation developing in the Gulf. The US is increasing the number of warships to support the Saudi backed civil war in Yemen.

As a counter rockets have been fired at the US embassy in Baghdad but fallen short. Israel wants to attack specific targets in Iran.

Meanwhile Trump tweets:

“The Fake News Media is hurting our Country with its fraudulent and highly inaccurate coverage of Iran. It is scattershot, poorly sourced (made up), and DANGEROUS. At least Iran doesn’t know what to think, which at this point may very well be a good thing! ” Potus – 20 May 2019

Fortunately the Donald is not George W, he tweets but doesn’t shoot but he is building a bigger military presence in the Gulf.

Meanwhile both the Saudis, Israel and the US are trying to block a land corridor through Iraq and Syria between Iran and Lebanon .

One response to “US-Israeli wars in the Middle East

  1. In July 1988, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iranian civilian airliner.

    A year later, the US Naval Institute Proceedings carried a report by the commander of sister ship who put the blame on the gung-ho behaviour of the Vincennes commander which he said had been ‘a topic of wardroom conversation.’

    Throughout, Washington blamed the Iranian civilian pilot for flying in a manner threatening to the warship.
