Slight Shift in Middle Eastern Paradigm

Reader comment on item: The IDF Opts for Victory
in response to reader comment: Maybe It's Not All About Victory - Lust for War has its Payoffs for Some

Even as America goes through its identity crisis as a world force for peace, which is being debated internally in ways that the world will not be able to endure, Israel doubles down on the demonstration that if her enemies do finally find their courage to fight against Israel's Eternal Sovereign, a process expected now to be within the lifetimes of all who are reading this before their 70's, let us see the gauntlets of Israel's detractors now.
Let it be understood as well, that America may yet have another last moment in supporting Israel; but remember, that is not what Israel will be depending on when the issues of Mt Moriah come to a head.
Instead, there are so many shifts in the posturing of the various actors in the Middle Eastern melodrama that any one of them is the oxygen that will spark the peat fire ready to explode in all politically concerned arenas: the Golan; defense of al-Aqsa, retaliation of the Iranian Islamic Regime as a response to the Abrahamic Accords; the possibilities are now too many to count. Who is ready; anyone?
