It is understandable that Bibi Netanyahu is upset because the good old days when American forces fought and died in Iraq is no longer possible. Bibi is a fighter who never gives up regardless of the fact the guy he is fighting wants to end violence and work for peace. Of course, Bibi and his buddies in Congress are convinced that Iranians can not be trusted and the only land in the Middle East which can is ISRAEL. So, examine the record:
Israel launched an attack in 1956 against Egypt until told to stand down by President Eisenhower–a Republican.
Israel launched an attack in 1967 and won the Six Day War.
Israel invaded Lebanon in the 1980s
Israel has four times invaded the Gaza Strip.
And, violent Iran: IT HAS NEVER INVADED A MIDDLE EASTERN NATION.
Anyway, Yuval Steinitz, Israel minister strategic affairs said that military action is possible against Iran. “It was on the table. It is still on the table. It’s going to remain on the table.”More words of peace from Israel.

I confess to being emotionally overwhelmed by the recent tragic death of 150 people when their plane went down on its flight from Spain. We inhabit a world in which hate flourishes and results in the death of the innocent. A group of people boarded a plane in Spain that included children on their way home from studying. They were innocent, but unfortunately they inhabit a world in which a single mentally ill person can murder a few hundred people. New evidence indicates that one of the pilots just broke up with his girl friend and that he had serious mental issues. In the modern world when one is mentally ill, then one has the power to murder dozens of people. Frankly there is no way to avoid such calamities. We benefit from modernity and we suffer from modernity.
There are no words to express our sorrow. There are no words to explain this murder of the innocent. All we can do is chalk it up to modernity and what we humans have created in the name of ‘progress.” The only certain thing is that within a few years there will be another such incident. Just remember, there are people on social media who thrive on becoming important.
