Faux Ceasefire and Faux Victory

Published by at 3:47 pm under All General Discussions,Hezbollah

Hezbollah has declared a victory after losing all of their positions in Southern Lebanon and being dealt a huge blow in terms of casualties. Few more victories like that and Hezbollah will be purged from Lebanon and half of Syria. Their ‘victory” is as real as the ceasefire since Hezbollah vows to attack any Israelis on Lebanese soil. What an international joke this all is. Does anyone believe this is the long term peace all the UN talking heads are pretending it is?

    From my readings, once Hizbollah resumes its attacks, they’ve given Israel all rights to defend themselves more but this time with UN support.

    I think the answer is realistically shared by everyone, all the way from Olmert to Bush and that answer is no. And they are hoping for an enforcement of this UN resolution. They are also hoping for a Attaturk method to affect Lebanon. The Attaturk method took many years for Turkey to embrace democracy. Now the Islamofascists are slowly working their way into Turkey and Europe.

    Now Nasrallah and Iran are playing great PR games with their offers of help. Funny how Nasrallah believes Lebanon belongs to him and it will unless Lebanon stands up to him.

    Sounds like Hitler and Mussolini all over again? Who will be fooled this time?

    I’m willing to bet that Kofi Annan’s 30-day plan will not yield the results but we’ll see how good Bolton is.

    Yes, if Hezbellah attacks, Israel will responds.

    What the UN resolution does is make it plain that at least this time, it is not Israel’s fault. Israel is in a bad place here, they don’t want to leave and they don’t want to stay.

    As for Nasrallah, well he can stand among the rubble in southern Lebanon and shoot his mouth off all he wants. There are 35,000 Israeli troops in Lebanon right now and not only can he not make them leave anyone of them would be more than happy to shoot Nasrallah if the oppurtunity presents itself.

    I think we will have to wait and see how this plays out.

    Yes, we may need to wait and see what George and Condi have cooked up…long term benefits are what both want….this may bloom for them, afterall…

    Just reported! 4 Katyusha rockets just fired north of Litani river. Apache helicopter heading towards Beirut.

    Nope. Ceasefire is probably dead, if not within the next 24 hours but soon.

    You are a cool head not to join the chorus of otherwise sensible conservatives in slamming the President and Israel for agreeing to a cease fire.
    Gained a buffer zone
    Destroyed Hezbollah supply lines
    Severely weakened Hezbollah
    Is not stuck in Lebanon as an occupier
    Put the spotlight on the UN to disarm Hezbollah.
    Has not lost any options if the agreement doesn’t work

    When will folks learn not to underestimate this President, especially on the basis of CNN type information.

    Just watched Hardball just to see other perspectives. Tweety and Hirsch were discussing New Yorker article coming out. Hirsch is saying this was all a dry run for US air invasion of Iran!
    While I might cheer a hookup of US and IDF in Damascus, I thought we had learned in VietNam that the air force can’t handle the job!
    Prez was pretty direct with Syria and Iran today tho. Day late and $ short?

    Hersh is such a fraud. I really do not understand how he stays in the business. What am I saying? He is a journalist.

    I would agree with Macker. Israel made realistic and intelligence gains, HB made propaganda gains and those can change with the next press release. Also Israel is not pinned down occupying territory they don’t want, thus maintaining operational flexibility. This is not over yet, merely a pause between acts.

    As usual the drafting of recruits for the most likely designated looser team in all this will be the UN.

    As it stands right now the best I can get is they are gonna ask to Hez guys to disarm, pretty please with sugar on it.
