With so much that must be done at home in the United States, why does America send so much of its resources to Israel? It’s a fair question, but according to U.S. Gen Chuck Wald, America doesn’t spend enough on Israel. Watch to understand why.
Ami Horowitz breaks down the details of Iran’s nuclear secrets in the aftermath of America’s withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s relationship with Vladimir Putin is unusually complex.
However, within the layers of political and military considerations is, on Putin’s side, a little known personal connection. When Putin was a child he had a grade school teacher who made a huge impression on him. She took an interest in little Putin and encouraged him in positive ways. The teacher was Jewish. Putin never forgot her kindness. In fact, Putin purchased a lovely apartment in Tel Aviv as a gift to his old teacher. Perhaps, just perhaps, this relationship has made the Russian tyrant more receptive to the security needs of the Jewish state.
J.E. Dyer is a retired Naval Intelligence officer who lives in Southern California.
I have been following her work for a while and a few years ago Karen and I attended one of her lectures. She is smart, blessedly undramatic, and extremely knowledgable about military matters and the geopolitics of the Mideast.
Her analysis of the latest Israeli raid into Syria is superb.
Iranian forces in southern Syria launched 20 rockets at Israel in the Golan Heights on the night of 9 May (10 May in Israel). Now Israel appears to have launched a counter operation, whose goal is probably to significantly disable Iranian capabilities in Syria. The scope of the targeting, just in the first few hours, indicates a broad-scale, preemptive interdiction.
Will sanctions alone bring down the IslamoNazis of Iran?
I doubt it.
But it’s worth trying.
And then, when sanctions fail, Israel should attack with their extremely capable air force and flatten all Iranian nuclear sites.
Remember, Israel eliminated the nuclear programs of Iraq and Syria. Of course, the international community wagged their collective finger and clucked their thick tongues about Israeli aggression. But is there anyone sane who is not relieved that Syria and Iraq are not nuclear powers today?
“After years of bashing US intelligence agencies for getting Iraq WMD wrong, Trump is now cooking up intel with the Israelis to push us closer to a conflict with Iran,” tweeted Obama’s former National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Vietor. According to the limo driver turned foreign policy expert turned podcaster the U.S.-Israeli cooking of intel was “a scandal hiding in plain sight.”
Does Vietor offer any evidence that the US and Israel fabricated the Iranian nuclear docs?
Of course not.
The documents have already been authenticated by the CIA.
