The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

In today's The Morning Report, J.J. Sefton discussed the current situation in Israel, and the American administration's rabid anti-Israel and anti-Semitic foreign policy officials compared to President Trump's regional successes.

As I have stated for the past several days, Israel is facing an existential crisis as serious as any in its history. And considering we have a government - and an illegitimate one at that - that is openly anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic makes the potential for catastrophe that much greater. Make no mistake, that catastrophe will reach out and touch us right here. Pausing for a moment, the thought of the Middle Eastern situation today was almost unthinkable a year ago thanks to President-in-exile Trump. Iran was on the ropes, the so-called "Palestinians" had been removed from the chess board and the greatest regional geopolitical realignment in history that had never before been conceivable (or even wanted by the "peace process" pimps) was within our grasp. How quickly that can all vanish, mostly thanks to a rigged election.

Except...Israel has spent the last years degrading Iran's ability to produce nuclear material, has systematically assassinated their key scientists and engineers, has destroyed countless shipments of Iranian war materiel as it was moved around Syria, not to mention killing a fair number of their operatives in Syria and elsewhere.

They are now in the process of destroying Hamas' ability to project force into Israel by destroying the command and control infrastructure in Gaza, destroying the tunnels, killing hundreds of its commanders and low level terrorists, and in all probability destroying many of their unused rockets.

The state of Israel has been in an existential crisis since its official reconstitution in 1948, and has had to deal with antagonistic American administrations, including the Obama and Carter administrations. Even nominally neutral or supportive presidents tended to try to control Israel's reactions to terrorism or conventional attacks by its many enemies. For instance, during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Nixon (advised by Kissinger) delayed resupply of desperately needed materiel..."Let them bleed" was Kissinger's comment.

So the previous four years of a clearly friendly Trump administration that recognized the obvious difference between Israel, a pluralistic democracy, and its enemies, a group of savage zealots who treated their own people only marginally better than they treated Israel, was an outlier. A wonderful one that did much to create the conditions for a cold peace, but an outlier nonetheless.

Israel will survive this crisis, and in fact, because of the Biden administration's chaotic and weak-sounding responses may be able to continue its operations against the Hamas terror network for longer than one would expect. Add to that a political situation in Israel that will reward an aggressive response to terror, and we have the conditions for a modest success.

And let us not forget the Palestinian propensity for catastrophically bad choices! Just weeks after the idea of a coalition government in Israel that -- shockingly -- included a few of the Arab parties, the profoundly clueless and stupid and tone-deaf Arab population in Israel decided to destroy 75 years of progress and riot in support of...what? Hamas launching rockets at them? Whoops! No more talk of coalitions with the Arabs!

Most of us want Israel to be ruthless and brutal with the terrorist groups that run the Palestinian enclaves, intuiting correctly that only total subjugation will stamp out the support for terror that is rampant in Gaza and the West Bank. But that is not to be. The best we can hope for is exactly what is happening now: destruction of the terrorist apparatus with surgical precision.

I intimated something similar on the morning report. I think the big difference-maker is Iron Dome. I suspect that the Israelis are confident enough in Iron Dome to make the cycle of periodic destruction of warmaking capability in Gaza and West Bank palatable without utter destruction of the enemy and permanent occupation.

That would sew distrust and confusion amongst the ranks of Hamass and might even lead to internecine fighting and assassination.

Probably several reasons. They do strike Iran in Iran, but not routinely or systematically. They probably can't sustain that kind of offensive for one thing (not without *any* support from external powers, and they can't count on that) and there are several countries in the area that will look the other way on surgical strikes against atomic infrastructure but might not be so accommodating in the event of a general strike on the wider government and Tehran.

Whatever you're on is some powerful stuff, man.

Look, the last 70 years (Israel), 20 years (uptick in islamic terror), and 5 years (most recent wave of islamist violence and illegal marxist-funded invasion in the EU) have shown rather conclusively that "surgical strikes to keep them in line" is a load of hogwash.

Failing to completely expel the arabs at the formation of Israel was a mistake. Failing to finish the job at a few points since was a continuation of that mistake. The world is aghast at that one arab that nearly got lynched on TV, ignoring the wave of arab Israeli citizens that have decided now is the time to throw off the mantle of puppies and rainbows and shank their neighbors.

What they need to do is finish business as soon as the rest of the world is distracted - most likely by some clusterfuck involving China. THAT is what we should hope for - and an Israel free of arabs is one less politically useful cause for the marxists.

In the US, most crude is refined into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. The transportation sector has been the largest sector since 1949.

Take away gas, diesel and jet fuel use, and most countries wouldn't need to buy from the arabs.

Not at the levels the arabs are used to selling at.

Best guess? If the ME really goes hot or gets messy enough. They take Taiwan or those islands of Japan (I forget the names right now) that they claim cuz of oil and fishing resources.

China is one of Iran's Big Daddy's and Xiden is China's puppet so things could get very messy should they want it.

This is a fairly poor argument. We use oil for a lot more than gas and moving to a less-resilient transportation method (well, less energy-dense at any rate, with more fragile external requirements) is not a great way to own the Arabs and Persians.

There is another way to squeeze them on energy, and it's what we were doing with astonishing efficacy right up until the end of January: make our own energy, gain independence from them, then compete with them globally as convenient but otherwise ignore them.

Now they are indefinitely postponed. Last elections (legislative council) were held in...2006. Presidential in 2009. According to surveys (yeah, I know) Fatah was to win but with a slim margin (38-34% Hamas).

I also think that Israel, at times, does technology sharing with China, which makes a lot of people in the US military nervous.

As regards to the 1973 Yom Kippur war, Nixon had photo recon intelligence that the USSR had deployed nuclear armed short range missiles in Egypt, in case
1) Egypt got over run
2) Israel got over run and they excercised the so-called Jericho Option (nuking the Arabs).

After the Yom Kippur war, the missiles were withdrawn by the USSR. Yeah, that Cold War thing had a lot going on.

If EVs gain market share, then fine. No problem and consequences to foreign oil are likely positive. I'm not exactly anti-EV (I don't want one myself), but I think "pursue EVs to hurt the MidEast oil industry" is poor policy since it involves too many negative trade-offs to get there, whereas pursuing domestic energy production has positive effects in employment, industrial production, etc. That's all.

153 One of the reasons Israel will not strike Iran is their very good understanding of Iran's politics. Hint , very much like the old USSR - tyrannical regime, freedom loving subjects.

Posted by: runner at May 18, 2021 10:38 AM (V13WU)

154 There's no need to strike Iran at the moment, all that needs to be done is to destroy their ability to project power. With no ability to project power, a military force is just a dog in a cage. Israel destroys Iran's ability to project power by destroying all of the weapons stores in Gaza, and by preventing any new shipments through their naval embargo.

and Hamas doesn't need to be destroyed utterly, they just need to be taken down to where they have nothing left to fight with but rocks and sticks. At that point they become little more than a pack of baboons in a big zoo. suspect that the huge number of rockets being fired at Israel is not because of any great strength, but because even Hamas realizes that they are now in a "use it or lose it" situation.

It's more complicated than that, actually. People love freedom, in general. But people are also dumb, and when something like freedom is taken away from them, for "their own good," enough people just shrug and go along with it.

But that's not important. What's important is that people who AREN'T sheep rise up and do something about it. The sheep will follow. It doesn't take ALL the people to understand they're being oppressed. It just takes enough.

Israel, by any valid measure, is the most successful country in the Middle East, even WITH the Pali problem. Their science and technology rivals the US.

It is also the only country in the Mid East that is based on Judeo Christian Western Culture.

Just like the 'war' on the US White Male. The 'race' that built the most successful and most powerful country ever... that culture is being destroyed.

I'm not sure how we reached this point. It CAN'T be some big conspiracy as its too wide spread. Is there some drive programmed into Humanity to tear down the most successful?

243 212 @JROD, you are correct. Technically, we're not energy independent -- we are Canada, Mexico, and Venezuela's most important customer -- but we also export as much as we import, so in a net sense, we are. Crude oil comes in a lot of varieties, and some are more desirable than others are. We actually need to import heavy crude because our domestic production from fracking tends to be light crude that doesn't have enough heavy components to make a good blend for refining, but you're right about the light sweet versus light sour (amount of sulfur). There actually is an amazing light crude that comes out of Algeria. Looks like olive oil.

By their own standards ("their" meaning "the Left and the postwar foreign policy establishment"), this is true. Trump didn't deliver their impossible definition of "Middle East Peace."

All they want - and all they worked toward for around fifty years - was an omnibus deal. All countries, all in agreement. A perfect cathedral of peace with the United States as chief architect. This is stupid and unachievable. Donald Trump threw it out and returned us to bilateralism. He turned the clock back not to the interwar period but to the pre-1914 period of one-on-one negotiation and building from there.

He was wildly successful, but not on their terms and indeed he did not deliver *their* vision. He delivered his own, saw major success, and set the stage for it advance and expand - but that counts for precisely nothing in their eyes.

This is foolish but if it's not against the will of the recipient then it probably isn't illegal (though it does raise very serious questions as to the notion of how free the recipient's consent actually is when faced with armed men in uniform giving a hard sell. From that standpoint, strict legality aside, this is insanely dangerous)

About 50% of the oil that is sold worldwide is used for gasoline. Say 1/2 of that 50% is no longer needed as EVs gain market share. That would be devastating to Iran, SA, etc.
