The Game of War
Not the card game!
Iran has been conducting its war games in and near the Straits of Hormuz with the accompanying chest thumping and threats (which we hope are idle threats). Now the U.S. and Israel are doing their own war games, a defense missile drill. A short piece in the Times.
The Jerusalem Post has the critical details: “The drill, which is unprecedented in its size, will include the establishment of US command posts in Israel and IDF command posts at EUCOM headquarters in Germany – with the ultimate goal of establishing joint task forces in the event of a large-scale conflict in the Middle East.”
It appears that thousands of U.S. troops will deploy to Israel for this game, and that some Israelis (IDF???) will deploy to U.S. bases in Germany. Hmmm!
