The US has proposed to Israel to conduct joint military planning on potential attacks on Iran, Axios reported Wednesday.
The report cited US and Israeli officials who said the idea was proposed a few weeks ago during recent visits to Israel by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
Israel is known for conducting covert attacks inside Iran and has stepped up its threats to launch an overt military attack against the Islamic Republic in recent years, although it’s not clear if Israel could pull off such an operation without US support.
The US and Israel have been stepping up military cooperation and held their largest-ever joint military exercises in January. US officials told Axios that the proposal for joint planning against Iran is unprecedented and could significantly boost US-Israel military ties even more.
The report said Israeli officials have taken the proposal with suspicion, worrying that it could “tie Israel’s hands.” A US official said that the idea is “not about planning any kind of joint US-Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear program.”
But a US official also told Axios that the proposal was meant as a reassurance that the US backs Israel and is not meant to tie their hands. An Israeli official said that Israel is looking for the US to clarify exactly what joint planning means.
US-Iran tensions have been soaring since indirect negotiations to revive the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, fell apart toward the end of 2022. The US announced last week that it was increasing its military presence in the Persian Gulf after Iran seized two tankers, which came after the US seized a tanker carrying Iranian oil and stole the cargo.

I hope these people remember that Iran can fight back….
After the Russian invasion….the western mainly white minority world media go quiet on this…
What is with this planning, when the time comes the US will receive its orders.
The US announced last week that it was after Iran seized two tankers, which came after the US seized a tanker carrying Iranian oil. The last part of the sentence is to be noted. We pirated a tanker, then sold the oil. Likewise, we are stealing Syrian oil, just like Trump said we should.
If true, insane.
Biden, Blinken, Sullivan & Co. laying the ground work for ’24. Zionist money will soon begin pouring in and force RFK, Jr. to bend over or face the wrath of the Lobby.
It sounds like US cannot attack Iran without Israeli help and Israel cannot attack Iran without US help…!

Remember when Bill Clinton asked: “Who is the fucking superpower here?”
Still makes me laugh.!
Maybe so, but it’s way past time that Democrats defang Biden and his band of proxy facilitators.
Defang and neuter, Bear.
Testosterone can be a nasty substance, though I doubt ByeDone has much left.
Of course, our military-industrial complex has to have a hand in it.
Does this alliance mean anything to moronic Murka and Israel?
How ‘bout the Straits of Hormuz? Stock up on popcorn, folks, it’s gonna be entertaining!
So we get to be partners with Israel’s strikes?
When we let then do them of course.
Lose-lose; I see not much upside for either side but it does sound like the nonsence our State Department would come up with.
