While the U.S. may seem well prepared militarily in the Middle East, others say a strategic rethink may be necessary if the Iran-Israel crisis deepens. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/04/20/world/politics/us-military-strategy-israel-iran/

Israel's apparent strike on Iran after days of vacillation was small and appeared calibrated to dial back risks of a major war, even if the sheer fact it happened at all shattered a taboo of direct attacks that Tehran broke days earlier. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/04/20/world/politics/israel-iran-attack-calibration/

Netanyahu knows Biden won't stop arming Israel in an election year. All those AIPAC dollars are at risk.
So yet again, we are on the brink of all-out war in the Middle East due to Israel’s hubris.
This is not a retaliation for Iran’s missile strike, which itself was retaliation for Israel's illegal strike on Iran’s Syrian embassy.
This is another provocation by Netanyahu, who is desperate to cling onto power at all costs.
I despair.

Bad news out of the ... Despite international pleas for restraint following 's largely symbolic strike on , just ordered a on Iran. This escalation can only result in more conflict and death. At this point, I think the US has to seriously reconsider its support for Israel's far-right government.

This isn't a "War Against Hamas" this is a "War Against Humanity"

DEIR AL-BALAH, Gaza (AP) — An international team of doctors visiting a hospital in central Gaza was prepared for the worst. But the gruesome impact Israel’s war against Hamas is having on Palestinian children still left them stunned.

Desert city of flooded.

This wasn't cheap or poorly designed infrastructure, Dubai is too vast and has too many drainage channels for it to be an infrastructure problem

Dubai received over 200mm/9inches of rain in less than 24hrs. That more rain than some monsoons

Dubai is also a DESERT
