Israel has done everything in its power to stay out of the quick sand of a conflict that is occurring in Syria. Russia joined in late 2015 to save his dictator ally Assad. The Washington Post reports that Israel’s Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu travels to Moscow on occasion to clear their understanding of the conflict in Syria and to make sure their channels of communications between their military forces are open and operating correctly.
Iran supports the government of Syria by sending thousands of terrorist soldiers from it’s proxy army Hezbollah and by sending it’s own advisers from the Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps. Hezbollah is a designated terrorist organization to the Israeli and U.S. governments. There have been recent talks with leaders of both the United States and Israel about what they can do to stop Hezbollah from getting too powerful.
President Putin must not conclude that Israeli air strikes that target Iran weapons convoys and Syrian advanced weapons, are against the interests of Russia. If anyone thinks about all of this for any amount of time they will realize there is something much bigger happening than what meets the eye.
The new Trump administration has vowed many options to help Israel out with their security. While Netanyahu concretes his points to Russia and the U.S. about Iran needing a good military checking in Syria and elsewhere (Yemen), Iran continues to flow weapons to known and internationally recognized terrorist organizations.
The United States is still conducting its war against terrorism. They strike with drones and cruise missiles while using intelligence from good sources. Many different terrorist organizations like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and many more have been the recipients of those strikes. Notably though, Hezbollah has not been attacked by the U.S. military even after the 1983 Beirut bombing. The removal of the Assad regime has been said, that it is of the American peoples interests to remove him from power to prevent a safe haven for Iran and another one of their proxies to flourish.
So why is the U.S. military flying over Hezbollah terrorist troops everyday and not dropping a bomb?
