Relax. My posts used get deleted all the time. Who cares! Spend your energies & expend your righteous indignation where they MATTER -- i.e. ONLY vote for Right-wing (non-Haredi)Zionist parties from now on. And tell your kids, friends and acquiantances to do same. Because, as bitter experience has shown, NOT to do so would be by default legitimizing the TRAITOROUS, if not suicidal path chosen by Peres, Beilin, Ben Ami, Barak and then continued by (post-senile, possibly AG-blackmailed) Sharon, Olmert, Livni, Yachimovich, et al... Even Israelis who can't agree about anything and who think that Muslims want peace, are bound to smarten up by reality at some point, right? Right?My response to the message from Lebanon that was cowardly deleted from the thread… for no reason other than not having the arguments to tackle it…
Any one else here, what do you need to know about Lebanon? Real quick basics
1) Not without its share of hottie "talent" or delish food-fare. But the country itself is a shell of what it was before Yassir Pedophilafat got chased out of Jordan. Beirut as banking-hub.... "hey, we'll always have Paris [of the Middle East]".
2) Northern Border has never been more quiet. 6.5 years and counting - in the M.E. in general and in "Zionist Entitah" in particular, that's like 50 years in Swiss or Danish years.
3) Yeah, the infantry & all kinds of other training was severely curtailed, degraded for years prior to the 2LW. Thanks to the "Peaceniks" that somehow deluded the nations that era of wars was over. Plus, thanks to 2nd Intifada that shifted nation's focus on terror-policing (at the expense of conventional warfare capabilities & budgets, naturally)
4) With the US/NATO recent smashing of Saddam's mighty army in both Gulf wars mostly from the air, and then doing same to Milosevic crew... that further contributed to the overall IDF complacency by introducing a false doctorine held by Dan Halutz camp that evidently held that a few precision-bombing runs would pacify the jihadis. Especially a group like Hezbollah that, far from being a rag-tag bunch, was essentially turned into de-facto IRGC divisions -- courtesy of multi-billion dollars Iranian & Syrian investement over the years into all kinds sophisticated arms, bunker + tunnels networks, C&C centers all cleverly integrated into human shields & other civilian infrastructure.
5) And then there is the spectacularly incompetent Leftist cretins Ehud Olmert and Amir Peretz! I mean if Peretz running Histadrut didn't prepare him for 21st century guerilla warfare, I don't know what would, LOL. Even the rare few times Olmert did listen to the advice of IDF professionals, he ended up changing his mind & pussying out like 10 different times! So after Olmert got dragged into the war he didn't want kicking and screaming....he basically delayed any kind of meaningful deplyment until literally last possible moment before ceasire-fire was ready to go into effect -- instead preferring to send older Merkava 2 & 3 tanks practically without escort or support, into the mountanous-wooded terrain for which they weren't even designed...and into SUICIDE missions, into mind-traps & veritable volleys of advanced Kornet, Metis-M, RPG-29 fire that absolutely NO tank in the world would be able to survive. Not Abrams, not Chally, not Leopard II, not T-80.
