Iran's Attack Seems To Be Posturing; Israel Has So Far Handled It Effectively

Iran's Retaliatory Strikes Have Begun
[Hat Tip: dhmosquito]

Israel shoots down nearly all Iranian projectiles, Hamas rejects hostage deal

Iran missile and drone attack on Israel -- what we know so far

Iranian military leaders threaten Israel over potential response

There is a huge amount of pure guesswork going on in the media right now. But the Mullahs are quite clear that an Israeli response (which seems to have begun already) will result in a widening of the war to include American targets. Since Iran, through its proxies, has already attacked American installations in the region, this is simply reiterating their policy.

The big question is whether Iran will use ballistic missiles in addition to their slow drones, and reasonably fast cruise missiles. That will change the dynamic, since drones and cruise missiles can be shot down using a variety of weapons, but ballistic missiles are much faster and have a more difficult trajectory in which to detect and shoot down.

The Biden/Obama junta has flooded Iran with contradictory messages...releasing tens of billions of dollars to them, squawking about a nuclear deal, and then spouting drivel about protecting Israel. It is no wonder that Iran feels empowered to act...they are confident that they have powerful friends in Washington.

Adding to the mixed message is the current push by the junta to stop Israel's defensive war against Hamas. Why wouldn't Iran think that a direct attack on a sovereign country would be tolerated?

The preliminary information seems to show that The U.S. and the U.K. have attacked the Iranian drones, rather than simply providing information to Israel. That is heartening, since a coordinated and unified response from the West is vital.

The war against Islam cannot be won by Israel alone. The first step is acknowledging that there is a war, and perhaps this will awaken the West to the reality that Islam is on the march.

Sadly, "perhaps" is the operative word...
