Of course, it's all Israel's fault.lol. It would help if Israel had a constructive presence in Lebanon. But Israel is too worried about short-term threats than long-term threats.
It had a constructive presence for 18 years.
UN demanded Israel to pull out. UN promised to disarm groups like Hezbollah in return.
UN didn't deliver, Hezbollah - which was founded to "expel the Israeli occupation - didn't disband, and instead only got more powerful.
Hezbollah no longer had a reason to exist, because Israel was no longer occupying Lebanon. So it invented new reasons..."liberate Jerusalem" and "Remove Zionist occupation of Palestine."
Sounds like grasping to me.
Israel goes after Hezbollah in 2006, of course the UN condemns it and not Syria.
The UN, EU, USA, the Arabs are to blame for Hezbollah. Next war Israel should bomb Syria. Don't fuck with Israel and Israel won't fuck with you.
We're bombing Afghanistan to exterminate an enemy that poses no threat to our country, certainly an attack on Syria/Lebanon would be far more morally and legally defendable.
Israel should adopt Obama's military policy. Lebanon would be on fire.
USA would never tolerate a terrorist group on our border with scud missiles. To think hundreds of thousands of Israelis in the North - 50% of whom are Arab - are forced to live in homes with 3 inches of concrete steal around their homes. Bomb shelters, sirens, all that shit.
We don't have that here. And Hezbollah is more powerful and deadly than Al-Qaeda and the Taliban combined.
I mean SCUD missiles, are fucking kidding me? Would we tolerate a terrorist group on are border with 60,000 rockets aimed at our cities? Hell fucking no. Not even Obama would.
But hey...if it's Israel, they must negotiate.
