Reader comment on item: Give War a Chance
in response to reader comment: Interlude – Still in Anticipation of Next Acts of Hostility

Incrementally, while it was observed a potential lull in hudna style was occurring with a change in Israel's government, in reality, technically, there was no lull. The 'interlude' did nothing to change the intentions; the only result to be seen is the difference in response time from the new government. That jury is still out.
In the meantime, Israel's maritime vulnerabilities are made manifest as trade under the auspice of the Abraham Accords has reached increased targeted status, another signal that the Iranian Islamic Regime is sending to register their complete disregard for an agreement that surely rubs the new hardliner attitudes in a way they are bound by their hatred to disrupt, even at the hazard of their own liabilities.
What this will help determine is how the European markets will react if the entirety of trade is made hostage by the Iranian Islamic Regime increases the stranglehold in defiance to the American presence, begging the question: who will stop it? Any thoughts will be entertained here.
