Iran Launches Strike On Israel

Postby Jolthig » Sat Apr 13, 2024 1:43 pm

TOPLINE Iran’s long-anticipated attack on Israel appears to have started, as the country has launched unmanned aerial vehicles from within Iran set to reach Israel in the next “several hours,” the Israel Defense Forces confirmed Saturday afternoon.

In a press conference, IDF spokesperson Daniel Hagari said the IDF is going to “try to prevent them from reaching Israeli territory.”

He added the IDF would inform the public of additional threats if necessary.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

The conflict in Gaza is now expanding to include the region. My prayers are with the region. This is not going to be good for the stability of the middle east. Israel is a warmonger.

It was going to happen.
A highly imperialist nation beholden to stockbrokers invading your nation next Tuesday. Glory to Hekp!
This is Armenian Radio; our listeners asked us: “Is it possible to build communism in America?”
We’re answering: “It's possible, but who will we buy grain from?”

A guard asked a political prisoner, "What is your term?"
"Ten years."
"What for?"
"For nothing."
"What a lie! For nothing they give only five years."

Currently, I'd describe myself as a mixture between center-left and center-right. I'm more socially conservative and more economically liberal. I have found myself moving a little bit more to the right as time has gone on, but nothing too drastic. I'm also LDS, by the way.

Israel must respond.

In any case, this is part of the Israel-Hamas war, so shouldn't it be in that thread?

It's a bigger regional conflict now so I figured I'd start a new thread since they've been at each other's throats for years.

Your comment that "Israel is a warmonger" is stupid, seeing as Iran helped Hamas in starting this war.

Who started it is irrelevant. If you have a hand at escalating a conflict in the name of "proportional response", don't be surprised if you get called a warmonger.

By launching an attack on a consulate without even consulting the Pentagon? Or the fact Netanyahu has repeatedly advocated for war with Iran for years? Definitely warmonging.

Netanyahu can reason that Iran's strategic goal is to wipe Israel from existence, so targeting consulates are fair game. But he also knows that's a diplomatic faux-pas, so he's hush hush about him saying he did it.

Ok, so what did Iran think was going to happen when they assisted in the torture, rapes and murders that occurred on October 7th?

There is an Axis of Fascists and Islamists that is at war with the west. This war is part of that.

You don't bomb a nation's property and expect that there won't be war.

I'm not fan of Iran either in response to another NSGer on here, but Israel is really taking things too far.

Iran made Hamas make Israel bomb the Iranian consulate?

I get that people are desperate for Israel to not be responsible for its own actions but this is stretching things a bit.

Israel fucked around and found out I guess. The West should just cut them off now, they have caused too much trouble in the region for the past 75 years.

But fears of this turning full scale are unfounded, they don't border each other, chances are they will just exchange strikes.

The positions I take on here are generally more exaggerated than the ones I hold in real life.

General Assembly resolution A/RES/38/17 (22/11/1983) stated that it "Reaffirms the legitimacy of the struggle of peoples for their independence, territorial integrity, national unity and liberation from colonial domination, apartheid and foreign occupation by all available means, including armed struggle".

Iran has every right to attack Israel after the Israeli destruction of the embassy in Syria. The Apartheid State of Israel will fall one way or another.

So much for me hoping they'd limit it to attacking an Israeli embassy somewhere in the region.

Although these sort of tit-for-tat strikes would probably escalate to this point anyway since Israel and Iran both have a severe shortage of cool rationality at the tops of their respective governments.
