Tom Cotton Creates Inspiring Message Explaining Why the Flag Is Backward on Military Uniforms

As Cotton explained during his CPAC speech, the reason the patch is backward has everything to do with what the flag looks like to our military while it’s charging forward.

“It goes back to the days of cavalry charges,” said Cotton. “When our soldiers would charge into battle the flag would fly in the wind and if you’re on the right side of the formation (and the flag is worn on the right shoulder) it would appear backwards.”

“So our soldiers wear that flag backwards on their uniform still today to remind everyone that our army always advances, it never retreats,” said Cotton.

”And I think that’s a pretty good lesson for us today,” said Cotton. “When America is under assault and conservatives are under attack we will never retreat. We will never surrender, and we will always defend and protect the United States of America.”

Iranian-Sponsored Militias Targeted in Suspected Israeli Airstrike in Eastern Syria @BeholdIsrael.org

More Iranian-backed militias were targeted in a suspected Israeli airstrike over the weekend in the Deir ez-Zor region; Other interests are reported to have been hit in the attack.

In eastern Syria, the Deir Ez-Zor region, specifically Al-Bukamal, experienced what is believed to have been another Israeli airstrike over the weekend. Al-Bukamal has been a frequent hotspot for Israeli airstrikes, especially in the last year or more as Iranian entrenchment has grown inside Syria, something Israeli officials have vowed to prevent.

This would be the fourth Israeli airstrike in Syria in January should Israel be the source.

Al-Bukamal is the major border crossing town from Iraq into Syria as the Iranian regime continues to seek a “highway” from Tehran to the Mediterranean coast.

In Saturday’s attack, it’s unknown whether or not there was a specific target, though it is confirmed that multiple vehicles were hit. However, the Imam Ali base in the area may have been of designated interest as it includes several Iranian military elements. Additionally, it’s reported that a new shipment of missiles arrived from Iran at the end of the week.

Between the four strikes that occurred in January, several dozen pro-Iranian fighters were killed in addition to the destruction of weapons and military structures such as munition warehouses, tunnels, and various military vehicles. Each of the strikes took place nearly one week apart from each other.

Saturday night’s series of attacks amounted to 15 total airstrikes.

Again keep your eyes on the Middle East, including the face that Fake President Biden sent in troops to Syria. Military Industrial complex needs war for their success. JUST MY OPION.

Iran and Turkey Pursue Renewed Relationship Following Departure of Trump Administration @BeholdIsrael.org

The two countries are committed to strengthening their ties following the transition out of the Trump era; Iran’s foreign minister visited Turkey late this week to discuss several matters; Turkey’s foreign minister calls on the Biden administration to withdraw Trump era sanctions.

Amid the reality of a new US administration, the Iranian regime and Turkey are motioning to re-solidify their relationship, ultimately involving other nations moving forward. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif visited Turkey this week and met with several Turkish officials belonging to the Foreign Ministry to discuss regional stability.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that within Zarif’s visit, “all aspects of our bilateral relations will be discussed and views on regional and international issues will be exchanged.”

The Trump administration expressed willingness to work with the Turkish government over the last four years, putting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s regime in a difficult position regarding his relationship with the Iranians. In contrast, the White House emphasized a ‘maximum pressure’ campaign towards the Islamic Republic over the last four years following the US decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

According to Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, “Turkey hopes that the newly elected Biden administration in the U.S. will return to the nuclear agreement with Iran and withdraw sanctions on the Iranian people.” In essence, in the last four years, Turkey has been torn between protecting its relationship with Iran and leveraging its diplomatic relations with the US.

Not my favorite source, but under Biden Middle East becomes a powder keg again.

Israel to Become Part of CENTCOM Amid Geopolitical Shift in Region @BeholdIsrael.org

In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the president ordered that Israel be integrated into Central Command (CENTCOM) for the first time ever, making it the 21st country to join.

Though part of the United States European Command (EUCOM) for many years, Israel is set to become the 21st country to join CENTCOM, which presides over the Middle East and Gulf region. This is of great significance concerning military strategy in the region, especially concerning the growing tension that involves the Gulf States, Israel, the US, and Iran.

In light of the recent normalization of diplomatic ties between Israel and multiple Arab nations over the last four years, the Military Times said, “It is the crowning piece of Trump’s efforts to stitch together disparate nations with a common enemy, following the signing of the Abraham Accords, in which Israel normalized relations with former enemies Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.”

The Abraham Accords, which have largely been accomplished in the last three months, have normalized diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco, with others believed to follow in the future.

According to the Pentagon, the Abraham Accords opened the door for Israel to join CENTCOM. The Pentagon said, “The easing of tensions between Israel and its Arab neighbors subsequent to the Abraham Accords has provided a strategic opportunity for the United States to align key partners against shared threats in the Middle East.”

They added, “Israel is a leading strategic partner for the United States, and this will open up additional opportunities for cooperation with our U.S. Central Command partners while maintaining strong cooperation between Israel and our European allies.”

Israel’s integration into CENTCOM provides the means for a significant upgrade in intelligence and military transparency in the region.

Retired Marine and former head of the Central Command, General Anthony Zinni, also voiced his optimistic outlook on the news. He presented that while in the past, such a move would have created more friction due to the lack of trust between Israel and the Gulf States. However, amid Israel’s longstanding friendship with the US and ever-improving relationship with Arab nations, he pointed out that there very well may be no better time than now.January 15th, 2021
