For Israel, It's Open Skies Over Syria and Iraq
Syria and Iraq are facing a common conundrum in their respective skies: a persistent Israeli air campaign that has targeted Iranian and Iran-linked assets.

In the past, I have even suggested that geography has been the main force determining the different fates of each part of the planet for the past 20,000 years. The way this works is that geography drives social development, determining what it is possible for the members of each society to do, but at the same time social development drives geography, determining what the space around us means. Geography is the reason Northwest Europe was, through most of history, a backward periphery. It was a long way away from the real cores of development, and it was sealed off from the rest of the world by an ocean that was too big and too wild to master.
