The next war begins

Now that the U.S. and Israel have maneuvered the Europeans into covering Israel's northern flank, and possibly its western flank as well, the Israelis are free to move against the next country on the imperialist "enemies list":
In an effort to upgrade Israel's preparedness for a possible confrontation with Iran, Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz has appointed Israel Air Force Commander Major General Elyezer Shkedy as the IDF's "campaign manager" against countries that do not border on Israel - primarily Iran.
Three guesses how much foaming you would see at the mouths of Western politicians and pundits had Iran announced that it had appointed a "campaign manager" for a war against Israel. Not that the howls for a strike against Iran aren't loud enough already.

By the way, does anyone remember way back, oh, two weeks ago, when the U.S., Israel, and its coterie of pundits, newscasters, and other apologists were saying how there could never be a ceasefire because you can't have a ceasefire with "terrorists" since they can't be trusted? I assume that all the readers of this blog, at least, have noticed that since the ceasefire went into effect, all of the violations of the ceasefire, 100% of them, have been Israeli violations. Well, I guess that does actually prove the point - you can't have a ceasefire with terrorists. In particular, state terrorists.
