Is A War Between Israel And Iran/Hezbollah Imminent?

Posted by BFP Staff on Mar 15, 2018 at 08:51 PM

Russia in particular and the US must cooperate and lean heavily on their respective clients to prevent such a miscalculation.

The recent violation of Israel’s air space by an Iranian drone and Israel’s retaliation against Syrian and Iranian targets prompted many observers to suggest that the growing regional tension resulting from such incidents may precipitate a war between Israel and Iran/Hezbollah, and perhaps inadvertently with Syria as well. I disagree with this prognosis. I maintain that none of the players involved want to engage in a war that will inflict tremendous destruction and casualties without realizing any sustainable long-term gains. This, however, does not preclude an accidental war resulting from an unintended incident or miscalculation.
