“Don’t look away.”
It is all you are hearing on FOX News.
You’re not going to see all the photos and clips of dead and mutilated Palestinian children in Gaza. Thousands of dead people are buried and rotting underneath the rubble right now. It is not being shown on television in the United States, but the entire Muslim world is watching this.
DON’T LOOK AWAY is actually good advice right now because the practical implications of “Standing With Israel” is inflaming all 1.8 billion Muslims in the world at a time when an overstretched American Empire is already engaged in a proxy war with Russia over Ukraine. What could possibly go wrong?
Even if you don’t care about the human rights of Palestinians, it is clear whose ass will be called upon to deal with the fallout of this when the blank check that has been given to Our Greatest Ally is cashed. I can imagine all sorts of scenarios from a hot war with Iran and its proxies to a repeat of the Oil Shock of 1973-1974 to a dollar collapse to the entire Middle East being engulfed in war.
Never before have we talked to so many top government officials who, in private, are so worried about so many overseas conflicts at once.
Why it matters: We don’t like to sound dire. But to sound a siren of clinical, clear-eyed realism: U.S. officials say this confluence of crises poses epic concern and historic danger.
Behind the scenes: Officials tell us that inside the White House, this was the heaviest, most chilling week since President Biden took office just over 1,000 days ago. …
Not one of the crises can be solved and checked off. All five could spiral into something much bigger:
1. Israel’s response to the Hamas terrorist attack …
2. Vladimir Putin …
3. A malicious Iran …
4. North Korea …
5. Misinfo …
If the United States gets bogged down in a hot war with Iran and possibly the entire Muslim world over the actions of Our Greatest Ally in Gaza, China could waltz into Taiwan.
