This spring, Washington and Israel will "hold the(ir) largest-ever missile defense exercise....amid Iranian efforts to obtain nuclear weapons."

Unprecedented in size, it'll include establishing "US command posts in Israel and IDF command posts at EUCOM headquarters (America's European Command) - with the ultimate goal of establishing joint task forces in the event of a large-scale conflict in the Middle East."

In fact, greater conflict's coming because Washington and Israel plan it. Alleged threats are fabricated. Claiming an Iranian nuclear weapons program is bogus. At issue is creating instability, chaos and violence to achieve longstanding US/Israeli geopolitical objectives. They involve redrawing the region for total dominance to Russia and China's borders.
