    this was published a few days ago, before this latest attack, but worth reading for some historical perspective.

    The Hidden Calculation Behind the Yom Kippur War
    It’s long been the greatest question about the war: why Israel waited to be attacked. But what if it was convinced to wait by its closest ally, the United States?

    much too long to post here in full, but if you're interested in the differences between the 1967 and 1973 wars, Kissinger and Nixon. For the younger folks, it also helps to be reminded why the "occupied" territories were.

    it also makes one wonder whether the Israelis really were caught flat-footed this time.

    Watch this video. That’s a Hamas drone taking down an Israeli Merkava tank. A drone operated by an organization sponsored and trained by Iran applying both Iranian tactics and, most likely, Iranian hardware to attack Israel. This happened weeks after America sent Iran $6 billion, and one week after we learned that the American government had over the past years ceded whole parts of its own intelligence units to Iranian spies.

    The stage for this attack was not set in or by Israel. It was set by the United States.

    Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II, over 150 billion in non inflation adjusted dollars.

    I don't think we are getting value for money here.

    We've given Israel 150 billion and we have low iq MAGAts @bigtexxx who think somehow the 6 billion we havnt even given iran is somehow responsible for Hamas attacked Israel.

    It's just fascinating how braindead and brainwashed the MAGA cult is

    There's extremists for every religion and every culture. We know you hate Muslims but majority of Muslims do not support that crap. Quit trolling

    Logic is not your strength. I seriously don't understand why you think you are smarter than everyone.
