Israel is well-prepared to handle any threats, and will determine by itself what actions it takes.

Who is going to listen this old puppet? If he was capable he would have stopped the attack from the beginning ... No one in the world is going to listen him...

Mark my words.. Watch what is going to happen next..

Only US? No other countries also play their part so this situation not escalate any further.

Turkey, Kuwait, Jordan, and Qatar refused their airspaces being used by US. So actions during last weekend only limited to defense by shooting drones while flying, no more than that.

I agree that disgusting Iranian Foreign Minister offers nothing of relevance.

The last thing Bibi should do is listen to this guy. You do what’s best for your nation. As if we would listen to anyone if we were attacked like when 9/11 happened. We would have told every other nation to pound sand.

Because the US should just supply billions of dollars worth of military assistance every year and keep its yap shut.

Unless Trump is president. Then all conflicts around the world would stop instantaneously.

You do what’s best for your nation. 

Bibi does what's best for himself. He's deliberately prolonging and stoking this conflict because he wants to stay in office to avoid his various criminal trials.

No one said that.

Well, they can say what they want, go for it.

Bibi does what's best for himself.

And his nation

He's deliberately prolonging and stoking this conflict because he wants to stay in office to avoid his various criminal trials.

Neither of us know what is in this guys heart, I won’t speculate, but I will say that he definitely wants to destroy Hamas down to its core and I think so. He should. I know Israel will never win the PR war, but honestly, it’s irrelevant in the bigger picture of things.

You said the US shouldn't tell Israel what to do.

Right. Propping up Hamas to derail Palestinian statehood was so good for Israel.

Congress declares war, not the President.

I think what keeps the US from attacking Iran is the strong belief that China will make a move on Taiwan soon and the US will need every missile in their inventory to defeat the Chinese attack. Some of the models of such a conflict predict the US could burn through all of its inventory of certain expensive cruise missiles and possibly some anti aircraft missiles. The US has to weigh what is more vital to US interests. Nobody wants to be in a position of having just beaten Iran using up hard to replace ordnance in the process and the next week China attacks Taiwan, with maybe DPRK tag teaming on China by attacking South Korea.

This is a serious possibility.

Israel is small and weak without US arms, which are stuck behind the Ukraine aid.

Title is misleading. It should be the opposite. US is escalating war around the world by providing a lot of weapons to tiny countries and also dictators in other countries.

Israel attacked the Iranian consulate in Damascus, a diplomatic building. Although the IRGC generals were presented inside, still it was not a legitimate reason to attack. Israel has seriously vreached international law. They better take the victory now they have in their hands. Otherwise if they pushing too far, they will found themselves losing every support they got !

*You** said the US shouldn't tell Israel what to do.*

They can, but Israel doesn’t need to listen.

Israel is small and weak without US arms, which are stuck behind the Ukraine aid.

They still have nukes so….not to mention the best fighting military Air Force in the region

Right. Propping up Hamas to derail Palestinian statehood was so good for Israel.

There will never be a 2 state solution.
