Israel has effectively declared war on Iran

Imagine if Iran bombed Tel Aviv. The world would denounce it. Washington would offer military aid. Israel would immediately strike Iran over and over again.
Instead, because it's Israel bombing Iran, it's written like this.

US officials believe drone attacks at a military plant in Iran’s central city of Isfahan were carried out by Israel, according to US media reports...
The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported that Israel was behind the attacks, citing US officials and people familiar with the operation. The New York Times cited senior intelligence officials who were familiar with the dialogue between Israel and the United States about the incident. None of the officials were named.
...In the past few years, several explosions and suspicious fires have occurred around Iranian military and nuclear facilities.

There's no outrage in this article. No denunciations. No mention of right or wrong. Not even mention that this is an act of war.
On the very same day, this also happened.

Seven people have been killed after air strikes destroyed a convoy of trucks carrying arms into eastern Syria from Iraq, a war monitor said Monday.

The seven were "truck drivers and their assistants, all of them non-Syrians", the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, adding that they were "killed as a result of unidentified aircraft targeting a convoy of Iran-backed groups, last night".

The strikes destroyed a convoy of six refrigerated trucks transporting Iranian weapons in the Albu Kamal border region, the Observatory, which has a wide network of sources inside Syria, had said Sunday.

No country claimed the strikes, but Israel has carried out hundreds of air and missile strikes against Iran-backed and government forces in Syria, where the US military is also active.

"The trucks were transporting Iranian weapons," Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman had told AFP Sunday.

It is all that many people will ever know. Sooner or later, it'll finally come to our shores, with somebody (other than our own cops, of course) killing us in our own homes.

And the papers and teevee will still focus on the Kardashians. Nothing to see here, move along.

The more wars, the merrier the war pigs are!

The only thing this country manufactures and exports any more are wars and the tools to support them.

I woke up this morning determined to drink less, eat right, and exercise.
But that was four hours ago when I was younger and full of hope.


If the government and corporations were forced to provide a
reasonable alternative work force and industry to build beyond bombs, then it
should be easy enough for people to transmigrate and retool into less harmful
professions. Turn around the friggen' weapons industries into mass transit, solar
solutions, wind power, computer chips, clean water works, or what have you.
Bring home the soldiers to fix the roads, bridges and infrastructure. Invent new
ways to distribute power. Provide housing and food production alternatives. We
could have a better world. For the people. Instead of the death machine.

War with Russia. War with China. War with Iran.
How can one be expected to choose when they are all first-tier options for the MIC?

This is America in the 21 Century. We'll take them all!
