"Occasional acts of terror" is how Obama admin saw Israel's security problem for 8 yrs.
No wonder a Biden admin staffed by former Obama officials (incl Ben Rhodes) sees it same way.
Gold is right about Jordan Valley. Effectively dominated by Israel today; must never be ... 1/4
... LESS than that.
Dominate Jordan Valley - keep the peace. Breaching it prohibitive. Limits what will be attempted from vector East.
Fail to dominate it - make infil attempts vs. J&S heights more viable. Destabilizing. Less peace, more attempts & feasible for ... 2/4
... non-state actors.
Reality of Iran, in last 10 yrs, moving missile/drone arsenal hundreds of miles closer into Iraq & Syria - that must not be ignored. SHORTENS reaction time. Need dominated perimeter closer to those threats, not further.
Golan shows why it must be held... 3/4
... by IDF, not "in trust" by UN or other int'l agreement. Such arrangement inherently cannot be about dominance.
Dominance essential.
For stable peace - for everyone in local region.

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
... 1/17
He said to his friend, — "If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light, —
... 2/17
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country-folk to be up and to arm."

Thread. We (US) should not “go to war” with #Iran, nor do we need to. 1/22
The #MiddleEast IS nevertheless our problem. Stability of entire human world depends on two fragile corridors in Eastern hemisphere being held open, safe, accessible by US power. 2/22
One corridor is South China Sea/Strait of Malacca. 3/22
