Well the kids are making a mess in the sandbox that we call the middle east. Religious fanatics/military mad-men/ corrupt politicians on both sides
and much blood. Middle Eastern violence has become a cliche.
The specter of all out war inched ever closer after Israels latest incursions May4.
Given that this is a Western forum (pretty much) I'm curious as to what position some of you might hold on the issue of an all out war.
Now. Let's be real here. You may not like Israel, but at the end of the day, they are our (the Wests) allies. (on paper anyways)
So if you have to choose a side, are you gonna back Assad (going against an ally) or support the Israelis?
And would that amount to, say, backing the Japanese in ww2?
Does disappointment in ones government equate to backing the Iranians in all out war?
We put Israel where it is. In a way, it's our fault when they (Israel) acts up.
Do we abandon them?
This is not intended as a flame post, it's intended to see how our values (when it comes to modern day allies) has changed.
edit: Lets keep it clean and concise, As somone once said:
"Wars are not won or lost on ATS. They are discussed"
