Can't Get Out

 Promised Too Much,

  Alastair Crooke looks at how the Israeli government has boxed itself into a situation where the Jewish population supports and demands overwhelming revenge against Palestinians, not only in Gaza, but in the West Bank of the Jordan river, and in southern Lebanon. This is problematic because Israeli forces have failed to accomplish this, or make convincing progress,  in the urban fighting situation, against highly motivated Hamas fighters on their home turf.
  Israeli politicians need some "decisive-victory, which they cannot accomplish without US involvement. They talk about "cutting the head off the snake" (Iran), but this is not possible, due to vast stockpiles of Iranian missiles of all kinds, able to take out Israeli cities, bases, and American bases and ships.
  They may try to wage unlimited war against Hezbollah, but would need the US to do the heavy-lifting, which would be against US interests, and cause loss of munitions, ships, planes and prestige. "Joe Biden" has always "backed Israel" and described himself as a "Zionist".  There seems to be no-way-out for the apartheid Zionist state". At what point would they employ nuclear weapons far and wide (Samson Option)?
 How would the Samson Option be gently walked down, as Likud cannot lose face at home, clear out armed Israeli settlers, and give the Palestinian people all of their mandated, lands, declared to be theirs in 1967? 
  How many Israelis would have to decide to leave for that to be feasible. It appears to be completely necessary.
  Many opine that there is no hope for a 2 state-solution. If that is the case, then the historical Ottoman Empire laws of religious tolerance would need to be applied and enforced.
The Tragic Self-Destruction of an Enraged Israel

​  John Helmer presents the scenario that US air defense systems, already supplied to Ukraine last year, may be functionally compromised, as they are not working well in Ukraine any more. The Russians may have shared working details of the systems with Iran, Yemen and other regional "Resistance" partners.
This would allow the drone attack within Jordan, which systems should have prevented. (Centcom knows where the drones originiated, but "is still investigating")
The details of the T​ower-22 attack, and Iran’s reinforcement at the Strait of Hormuz, reveal that the Arabs and the Iranians are ready and waiting. The Russians too.

​  The drone attack on the US troop base known as Tower-22, in the northeastern corner of Jordan, caught the US forces, reportedly reservists, asleep. The base reportedly holds 350 Army and Air Force personnel.   At least three have been confirmed killed; eight have been evacuated with life threatening injuries, according to US Central Command (CENTCOM); about three dozen have been counted as  wounded.​..
..While there has been no announcement from the Russian Defense Ministry of a successful hit against C-RAM in Kiev, military sources believe Russia’s General Staff have acquired the technical capability to neutralize the American system, allowing drones through to hit their ground targets, including the C-RAM mounted truck unit.

​  Pentagon Offers Unusual Reason Why Anti-Air Defenses Failed At Jordan Border Base
  The U.S. failed to stop a deadly attack on an American military outpost in Jordan because the enemy drone approached its target at the same time a U.S. drone was also returning to base, U.S. officials said Monday.​..
​..The return of the U.S. drone led to some confusion over whether the incoming drone was friend or foe, officials have concluded so far.
The enemy drone was launched from Iraq by a militia backed by Tehran, U.S. officials said. The outpost, Tower 22, sits in Jordan, hard on the borders of Iraq and Syria.
​  In total three US service members died and at least 34 were injured, with eight of these having been medically evacuated to a hospital in Germany."​,,,
​.."We don’t want a wider war with Iran, we don’t want a wider war in the region, but we gotta to do what we gotta to do," National security (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said Monday. "We certainly know Iran is backing these groups … we are taking it very seriously."

​  Public outrage and massive pushback has ensued after in a Monday interview White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre asserted that the three US troops killed by the drone strike in Jordan had died "fighting on behalf of the administration" rather than America.
​  "Our deepest, obviously our deepest condolences go out, and our heartfelt condolences go out to the families who lost, uh, three, three brave, uh, three brave, uh, three brave, three folks who are military folks, who are brave, who are always fighting, who are fighting on behalf of, uh, this administration..."​   ("Men", perhaps?)

(Must Have Emergency Powers​ before financial markets crash for good!)
​  According to Tim Hinchliffe, editor of The Sociable, the World Economic Forum’s “rebuilding trust” theme for last week’s annual meeting was just a cover for the globalists’ real goal: to install a “total control system” using digital ID and central bank digital currencies, under the aegis of global governance.

​Charles Hugh Smith   Our Tax System Is an Unfair Mess: Here's How to Fix  (It It would be easier if the $US were re-valued at 50%. That might happen as a result..)
Make the U.S. attractive to labor and capital with low rates and a simple, fair tax system and the populace and economy will benefit.
​  Discussing an alternative system of taxation that is fairer and simpler helps establish two important things: one, it reveals how far we've drifted from fairness, and two, it provides a template for a future reformist government to follow.
​  The reason why fairness in taxation matters is institutionalized unfairness rots society from the inside, and the social order and economy eventually collapse. Unfair taxes have two negative consequences: they accelerate the decay generated by unfairness, and they concentrate wealth in the top levels of wealth and power, exacerbating wealth/income inequality which also hollows out the nation from within.
​  Reforming taxation can't fix all our problems, but it can reduce the negative consequences of institutionalized unfairness and soaring wealth/power inequality.
