The Winds Of War

The proxy war between Israel and Iran has reached a new level with a tit for tat exchange between the two countries with Israel launching attacks on Iranian military targets in Syria. Iran has launched missiles into parts of the Israeli homeland to retaliate. This proxy war could be the beginning of another wave of violence in the middle east that is only made worse by the fact that the president has made the choice to not continue with the deal the Obama administration made with Iran with the understanding that Iran would get one hundred and fifty billion dollars that was being held in American banks. The money was released to Iran with little oversite about how it would be used by the Iranian government. This release of funds gave the Iranian government the money it needed to move forward with their nuclear ambitions despite an already unstable middle east.

President Trump has decided to take the United States out of the deal with Iran on how we will respond if Iran continues with its program to make a nuclear bomb. The Saudis are now saying that if Iran gets a nuclear bomb they will follow suit for the protection of Saudi Arabia by getting nuclear weapons for their military arsenal. Israel is not saying whether it has nuclear weapons in its arsenal. This looks like a modern race to get weapons of mass destruction that will only lead to more instability in the middle east. Once again the winds of war are beginning to stir in our world. And it appears the world is getting dangerously close to the slippery slope that leads to another military disaster on a global scale. America and Russia will finally determine who is truly the dominant world power in this new world order.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
