    If Israel responded to a conventional (but massive) Iranian bombardment with attempted nuclear annihilation, what would the... fall-out... be?

    Of course the countries that neighbor Iran would not be very happy... about the radiation at least.


    It would be hard to gauge the full impact. It depends on how big the Iranian attack was, if it was genuinely huge enough and if there's evidence of WMD involvement, maybe it would be better tolerated. If it was seen as an unnecessary reaction by Israel, then Israel would turn into an utter pariah state, probably with global demands to give up its nuclear arsenal immediately.

    But the economic, ecological and human damage would be incalculable, the size of the refugee crisis engendered (and Iran's neighbours aren't exactly best-placed to deal with that), would be unprecedented in human history. The current estimate is that an Iran-Israel war that closed the Straits of Hormuz would almost immediately trigger a global recession.


    Some right-wing politicians in the US---and possibly Europe and India too, given how politically ascendant---and how mainstream---the Islamophobic far (now not so "far"?) right has become in both---would actually be supportive of Israel in the wake of a massive nuclear assault on Iran. (At least two US congresspeople have said Israel should nuke Gaza iirc. Hopefully they were just trolling... but IDK, they might really be that dumb. Canada, watch out!) Trump would probably be okay with Israeli nuclear annihilation of Iran... if Iran weren't allied with Putin (and supplying him with drones, etc.).

    The first Native American artist to represent the US with a solo show at the [Venice] Biennale [...] Gibson—a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and of Cherokee descent—draws on his heritage but also remixes it in radical fashion in works that include pointed decorative elements (intricate beadwork, vintage pins, found objects like belt buckles and bags) and text drawn from what an exhibition pamphlet describes as sources ranging from Dakota proverbs and the songs of Nina Simone to excerpts from legislative documents. The effect of it all is celebratory and defiant, disquieting and full of righteous rage.

    Just further to this a bunch of guys went in earlier, looks like they're doing some sort of remedial work so I assume that place is gonna be up for sale soon. Does the nightmare end...?


    Perhaps they plan on expanding underground, with some well-fortified bunkers? Oh, and maybe even a network of tunnels... running right under your home. So you could dig a hole and pop down to pluck some drugs (and be neighborly) whenever you want! #Utopia
