Attack By Iran Means New Geopolitical Reality

The United States and Europe have found themselves in a new geopolitical reality, as Israel plans an urgent war cabinet meeting today in the wake of an unprecedented bombing that was able to breach the nation’s missile defense systems.

Calls for restraint by the United States are reportedly being rebuffed by Israel, as the war cabinet prepares for strikes claimed to be happening within 48 hours.

The attack consisted of over 300 drones that eventually overwhelmed Israel’s defenses, leading to minor damage within the nation’s borders.

Iranian officials are claiming that the assault was meant to be a limited response to Israel’s attack on an Iranian embassy, citing that they did not use some of the nation’s more advanced weaponry during the assault.

Russian President Vladamir Putin warned the U.S. against offensive involvement, claiming that Russia would enter the conflict if the U.S. were to attack Iran within their borders.

President Joe Biden has taken a decidedly passive stance up until this point, and is reportedly banking on the entire issue resolving itself, hoping that the limited damage sustained by Israel will prevent any retaliatory strikes that could inflame issues further.

During a recent call between Biden and Israeli counterpart President Benjamin Netanyahu, the American president asked for restraint in responding to the attack.

Iran has warned Israel that further retaliation will draw an even more aggressive response from Iran’s military.

Numerous countries are involved in this conflict through a complex network of alliances that brings with them the potential for a disastrous war if the current conflict gets out of control. From Russia and China to NATO and its allies, the conflict demands careful navigation to avoid a historic disaster.
