Skip to comments.WaPo inverts victim and aggressor (Israel and Iran)
Posted on 09/05/2019 7:57:39 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Israels ominous escalation (8/28/19) could also be called the Washington Posts ominous escalation with three articles/editorials in three days about Israels allegedly egregious responses to Iranian aggression. Of course, the Post calls Israels response to weapons buildups on its borders and attempted drone attacks as Israeli aggression. What else does one of the smallest countries in the world have to do in its spare time than to poke a hornets nest of enemies that have them pretty much surrounded?
The Post editorial says that since July, Israel has quietly expanded its air campaign against Iran. Might that have anything to do with Iran expanding its military campaign/buildup against Israel? We know that Iran has been provoking the world by attacking and hijacking international ships while creating havoc in the Straits of Hormuz. This has gone on for months. Irans actions are clear to everyone -- except the Washington Post when it comes to Israel.
To its credit, the Post acknowledges (will wonders ever cease?) that Israel clearly has a right to defend itself. Like clockwork, there is then the inevitable but after any concession or acknowledgement of an Israeli action. The Post follows (drumroll), But the Israeli response comes with considerable risks. Wheres an eyeroll emoji when you need one? The alleged risks: 5,000 US troops could be targets for Iranian reprisals. The Post continues the unprofessional use of speculation with their coulda brigade.
The editorial concluded with more speculation attempting to draw a link between Israels actions against Iran and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus upcoming election by saying Netanyahu is facing a tough election. The Post then states that Netanyahu might consider this a good time to escalate with Iran.

WaPo is just another way to spell toilet paper
How do we all feel about the money we give Israel?
I don’t see it mentioned often.
I don’t think Israel needs it, particularly because there are usually strings attached. They/we benefit more from technology sharing. I think it would be healthier if it were limited to things like that.
My understanding is that the stipends we send date back to President Carter, who coerced them into giving up the Sinai peninsula after 15 years, offering regular foreign aid as recompense.
America bribes Israel to stop Israel from taking the steps to halt the Muslim war on it. It started as part of the price for cheap Arab oil.
Now its just a sop to the American defense industry, where almost all of that money to Israel actually ends up.
So it’s to prevent Israel from solving it’s problems so that we get cheap oil?
But American defense industry makes money and Israel pols and military get rich from bribes. To them, its win-win.
