US Running Low on Weapons as Proxy Wars Target Russia, Iran, & China

Update on the conflict in Ukraine + Israeli-Palestinian conflict for October 14, 2023

– Ukraine’s offensive has culminated, in many areas is being overturned by Russian counter-offensives;

– Western military assistance continues to dwindle for Ukraine and is now being divided between both Ukraine and Israel;

– Israel’s military and political leadership have openly announced a deliberate intention to cut off civilians from food and fuel while bombarding them with military aviation and other long-range weapons;

– Israel is contemplating a ground operation into Gaza;

– The Middle East has been pivoting slowly away from US primacy, toward a Russian-Chinese led multipolar order;

– Hamas raids and Israel’s disproportionate response pose a danger to this process – forcing the region to be drawn into an armed conflict at risk of escalating;

– Hamas’ background and actions over the last 2 decades have served US foreign policy objectives, including supporting regime change attempts in Syria and to perpetuate, not end Israeli occupation and military aggression;

– Russia/China seek a two-state solution, in accordance with the UN, and seeks to reshape the region in a way that will make the two-state solution possible;
