Iran enters the FO part of the equation.

The best case scenario is that this was the pantomime retaliatory attack leaks show the US was begging Iran to permit.

Let’s see if this send the Iranians out into the streets again chanting Death to Israel, Death to America again. If they really want the war, they can have one. Japan may be in a unique position to step to the plate and be the voice of calm and play the middle man, as Iran and Japan seem to have a special relationship. Who can talk sense to those that want a war? The million dollar ( lives ) question. How to stem the frenzy of madness.

Clearly not Joe Biden or any other Western leader

JohnToday  12:23 pm JST - Iran enters the FO part of the equation

So far apparently 3 drones were reportedly brought down near Isfahan, situation on ground appears normal. Is that the FO you talk about?

It can’t be the Israelis as it was stated that no attack would occur until Passover was finished.

Also, I cannot believe that the Israelis wish to escalate the situation into a greater conflict?

Those careless Iranians must have left the cooker on or something…

Israeli crows routinely scream "death to Arabs " The Israeli Knesset has at least one member convicted of terrorism .Another female member gave a speech saying how proud she was at the razzing of Gaza.

A Defence Head called Gazan's "human animals "

Cant point fingers at Iran can we.

Compare Iran's size and population to Israel.

Goodbye Israel if a ME war breaks out.

Or at the least, western economies get starved of oil and go into recession.

Israel is the danger player in the region.

Bibi is going too far on this, a war in the middle East now serve no interest to America and the Alliance, this is a clear trap set by Russia and china. too bad bibi is becoming the main actor in this drama just to protect his own fragile career

Hopefully nothing much, like the Iranian attack. Would be great if Iran can be the adult here, but I am not putting any money on it.

If the US did not participate in the attack on Iran, then it should not participate in the response from Iran!

Well...

Israel launches airstrike; explosions heard in central Iran: Reports

The Israelis are lying again! No surprise, here!

From the latest reports on Al Jazeera it sounds like it was a very muted attack. My ill-informed guess is that this will not warrant the response that Iran threatened. Fingers crossed.

The Israelis are telling lies again and also targeting Iraq and Syria-astonishing!

-1 ( +11 / -12 )

It was interesting to watch a CNN PERSONALITY (note that they aren't reporters ot anchor person, because those titles make a person liable for the lies they tell, or encourage others to tell) literally claim that the Iranian response to the Israeli regime's previous attack on Iran "couldn't land anything in Israel' on TV, while I had Haaretz open on my tablet with the only image to have escaped the Israeli regime's censors showed the crater from one of the many hits on the Israeli regime's airbase that was targeted.

My ill-informed guess is that this will not warrant the response that Iran threatened. Fingers crossed.

the whole world is worried sick of the situation in Middle East, just because of childish behavior of Bibi. America will protect Israel, but not the kid bibi. The last thing we need now is another war in ME. Now we can only prayed that Iran will behave like a mature adult to avoid the war.

If Russia attacks Ukraine, and Iran attacks Israel, then China and NK will be right around the corner to go after a few targets.

What will the US do? They have limited funds and resources!

How will this affect the next election?

it really looks like Iran are trying to downplay whatever happened, so hoping we are done here.

Iran have brought this upon themselves.

It seems all the media is now completely reoccupied with Israel-Iran conflict. What if Israel's intension of diverting attention from Gaza is being realized? What if ethnic cleansing is being carried out in Gaza more efficiently than before as Gaza is becoming a black box?

Hamas, a proven government of Iran proxy, Hezbollah, Islamic militia in Iraq, Yemen have brought an entire region to the brink of war, to believe that appeasement will bring lasting peace is simply delusional.

The Government of Israel could well have brought this conflict to a point of no return.

Iran is a global pariah, and needs to be treated as such.

The Nazi German Third Reich had to defeated totally, it is long overdue to accept the Islamic republic of Iran is our sworn enemy.

When Iran develops weapons of mass destruction, and the means to deliver such destruction it will be too late.
