War Erupts In The Middle East

January 6, 2009

It was only a matter of time.

The state of Israel covers much of the Islamic holy land. Recently, the terrorist group, Hamas fired missiles into Israel from the Gaza strip. Israel retaliated as any nation would towards an act of war and invaded the Gaza strip with full force: tanks, surgical strikes, and a land invasion. They have had much progress and have all but eliminated the terrorist threat in Gaza.

However, like in all great military movements, there is an opposition. The U.N., lead by France, is trying to coax Israel into peace. On the contrary, Israel needs to find and destroy any terrorist group with the capability of firing missiles into its homeland.

The results of this offensive could grow though. Many nations support the actions of Hamas and may use this as an excuse to attack Israel. Among these, Iran has already announced plans to bomb Israel. Iran’s nuclear industry is developing and may be capable of war. However, a larger war will seem unlikely as time progresses.

When looked at in detail, we’re looking at a much more dire situation than advertised on the news. It’s only just begun.
