Not going to be easy for Israel to swallow Gaza and the West Bank all at once.
West Bank will be easy to formally annex but Palestinians will still remain there. In Gaza, Israel may to resort to carpet bombing and threatening the population to flee for Egypt.

Gaza can't sustain longer than a month of war with their limited supplies. I just see Israel taking advantage of this regional strife.

A very big problem too is what is going to happen in the Gulf and now also Libya.

Hill Air Force Base Executes The Mother Of All Elephant Walks With 52 F-35s



Surprise surprise. Iran walks a step, the US walks two.
This is at order of Pentagon, I don't know if Pentagon was aware of coalition notice in Iraq about withdrawal of US forces. But yes the Pentagon is definitely moving more troops/assets.

This is rather escalating, the US began striking Iranian military sites in Syria.




Diego Garcia base is 3500km away from Iran. How far can the B-52 bombers go?
I am too seeing reports of strikes in Dier Ezzor against some pro-Assad/Iran militias. Other sources saying it is Russian air strikes against ISIS militants.

Found this funny

He's probably looking for tips and no wants to tip him. I wouldn't say that this is a sign of Iranian peoples discontent towards their general. There is a large minority that doesn't care about but the majority want a response.

US troops/commanders on the ground want to pull out of Iraq but Pentagon is opposed. US troops themselves don't want to fight another war in the Gulf that is intended to weaken everyone in the region except the Israeli's.

A possible withdrawal is a big word. I am not buying it.

True, media reporting is getting the details wrong, they just clarified they are just moving some troops around to other areas of Iraq and to Kuwait.
