In the last week, all eyes have turned away from Ukraine and are now on Gaza as Israel has officially dropped nearly as many bombs on Gaza in the last 6 days as the US dropped on Afghanistan in a year.
It’s a big win for weapons manufacturers who are making a killing off the killings in Gaza, the value of shares in U.S arms companies increased following Israel’s complete siege and bombing of Gaza.
But Israel hasn’t just bombed Gaza this week, little attention has been given to Israel’s attacks on Hezbollah in South Lebanon and its bombings of Syrian territory. Now, the US and Great Britain have sent warships into the Mediterranean Sea in a show of support for Israel in case things escalate.
Here to discuss what this could mean for the region and the politicians that are beating the drums of war in support of Israel’s war crimes are Daniel McAdams, director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Vanessa Beeley, an independent journalist based in Damascus.
