Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said Israel risks a “strategic defeat” if it does not work to protect Palestinian civilians in Gaza amid its war on militant group Hamas in the region.
“The center of gravity is the civilian population and if you drive them into the arms of the enemy, you replace a tactical victory with a strategic defeat,” Austin said in a speech at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, Calif., on Saturday.

Most of these “civilians” are terrorists.
Tell God that Israel faces defeat. Um...no.

Israel risks ‘strategic defeat’ if civilians aren’t protected, PentagonGonorrhea chief says
Shut up, Lloyd. Let the men fix the car.
With the inculcation of jew-hatred as a way of life into every person living in Gaza, there really are no ‘civilians’ per-se. Both Hiroshima and Dresden were legitimate strategic targets back in the day. Israel is being held to some ridiculous standard never achieved in any armed conflict in history.
Okay.... How about the Israel citizens murdered on October 7th Mr Pentagon?
I second your statement.
“The center of gravity is the civilian population ( of Gaza)..........”
Loyd Austin is such an ignorant , supercilious idiot.
Hhistory shows us that ever since 1948, the center of Gravity is the civilian PEOPLE of Israel.
Apparently Biden has Austin joining the Hamas propagada wa.
And if BIden and Austin cut off the ,military supply to Israel, there are several nations prepared to support Israel, including India , with military supply.
What Biden is doing is decreasing Americas influence in the regikon, and if AUstin keeps up this foolishness, Joe will be licking the mullahs boots and taking his carrier task force toys home with little or no credance internationally.
What a lseewwwwwzer!
Blinken, Harris and Austin have signaled US cold feet. The standard Democrat bait and switch is on. Israel is about to be stabbed in the back.
Well, llllloyd......🖕. EEOC general, pound sand.
Since the civilians are part of the problem here, proudly cheering the actions of Hamas and PIJ and the rest, and are already bosom butt buddies with the “enemy”, logic dictates smash Hamas and encourage the “civilians” to leave Gaza for good.
Palis are co-conspiritors with HAMAS
AUSTIN IS AN IDIOT
Brandon’s entire cabinet is a motley group of retromingent buffoons.
More likely, Austin holds false assumptions about reality. Those assumptions propel him to do evil.
Like the “strategic defeat” the USA suffered in WW2? What nonsense.
“...and if you drive them into the arms of the enemy,...” Come on Lloyd, don’t confirm that you are an EEO hire, civilians ARE the enemy.
Austin: "They are kikes. They don't count as humans."
The traitor cabal running Pedo Joe is not content only to end the USA in favor of a borderless third-world hellscape.
They demand that other countries follow us into the dustbin.
