The only thing I can go by is from the 1st Gulf war, and what I felt..
When we were deployed, it was to remove Iraq from Kuwait, just being a young soldier and not as wise to what makes the world go round, the one concern
that my fellow troops had was when Saddam threatened, then, began launching scuds into Israel..
I know I feared that Israel would swiftly retaliate, and escalate the region into a huge conflict.. as Israel had some strong response to an Iraqi
scud attack on their nation..
I was amazed and relieved that they showed patience, and accepted the new
defense deal Patriot missiles on their soil, and let the coalition
do what it had to for whatever PTB were seeking.
Fast forward to now..
If Israel is ramping up the threat
level, all I can think of is that is a message to it's western allies to do something soon or they will
Though I am older these days, I would never claim to be all knowing, just relating my current view on this situation to one I lived through decades
I do think this is just the next step in TPTB's move to completely destabilize the middle east, it's almost complete, I just wonder if destabilizing
the entire globe wasn't their goal from day one..
bluntly.. it's a mess, and innocent folks will be paying for the ambitions of evil people who look at the world as their own game of Risk..
Isn't that the way it's always been though?
