Appeasement in the Face of Increased Hostilities

Reader comment on item: Appease Iran?
in response to reader comment: Thirteen Years Later - Is Iranian Islamic Republic Appeased?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 31, 2021 at 18:22

After the ups and downs of Israel being attacked from all quarters, not merely from a known targeting by the Iranian Islamic Regime, the Regime's proxies and covenanted partners in Russia and China, and close proximity to just about every friend of the 'Palestinian' Authority that would not hesitate to sacrifice Israel for reasons that have been debated in this forum ad nauseum that are reminiscent of imperial times and fought to extreme prejudices; and the battles to be joined are in view now. This is made all the more cautionary as the appeasement of the Iranian Islamic Regime's designs of empire now being made resurgent; and the only help Israel might have considered useful disappeared when the prohibitions of dealing with the Iranian leadership disappeared and the ghosts of the John Kerry confrontation against Israel reappeared.
Consistent with this attitude is the elevation of more damaging hostile intentions in the new Iranian leadership that is apparently going to be allowed to press the Regime's hostile intentions even further.
Confrontation is the certain outcome; resistance is apparently compromised and eventually Israel will be forced to react in ways none will ever be able to understand, neither have adequate means to stop in measured response. The global response to back up Israel's enemies will bring consequences the rest of the world would never be able to comprehend.
It's the Iranian Islamic Regime's intentions that should be watched; it's the tell. Appeasement is the tool.
