Israel is unfortunately really strong in the region and yes obviously the big reason being it ha some very powerful supporters. what I wanna know is who r these Palestinian militia men Assad has prepared? Has his regime brainwashed them to detonate themselves somewhere and kill innocent people or r they going to attack a Israeli tourist bus or something. All in all his response is pretty pathetic he doesn't stop using his war planes on innocent civilian but when it comes to Israel even though he has some sources he wont use it on Israel just shows the guy has no guts.

Israel has brought ANY form of retaliation on itself.

You're right, Israel owns the US Government and has all the "Big Guns". However, are innocent civilians any "less dead" when killed by suicide bombers or F-16s.

I can't think of any ethical, educated and fair minded person who didn't cheer Hezbollah's "David vs Goliath" victory.

Most Westerners have been professionally deceived Re: Hezbollah & Hamas;. They are DEFENSIVE and created as a result of unfettered Zionist Atrocities.

I've seen IDF's savagery, first hand; They're cowardly, sadistic, arrogant bullies (In general)

Every rational person is against actions that increase bloodshed...

HOWEVER...

Since the U.N. & General International Community REFUSE to stop Israel's blatant, 60+ Years of ongoing Genocide, self defense is entirely justified in the case of Israel's victims of unfettered Atrocities.

Hezbollah has proven to be far more Ethical and restrained than IDF in avoiding "Collateral Damage" than IDF

Please note & compare the Following:

1.“IDF commander: We fired more than a million cluster bombs in Lebanon”
“Phosphorous and cluster bombs heavily used; unexploded munitions litter wide area of Lebanon.”
http://www.haaretz.com/news/idf-commander-we-...

EXCERPT "What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs," the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war.

Quoting his battalion commander, the rocket unit head stated that the IDF fired around 1,800 cluster bombs, containing over 1.2 million cluster bomblets.

In addition, soldiers in IDF artillery units testified that the army used phosphorous shells during the war, widely forbidden by international law.

According to their claims, the vast majority of said explosive ordinance was fired in the final 10 days of the war.

The rocket unit commander stated that Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) platforms were heavily used in spite of the fact that they were known to be highly inaccurate.”CONTINUED

2.“Hezbollah is Way Ahead in Asymmetric Warfare”
http://johnib.wordpress.com/2006/08/17/hezbol...

EXCERPT “Hezbollah did the unexpected against Israel: they stayed alive. Despite the losses inflicted upon Hezbollah and the tremendous destruction of buildings and infrastructure, Hezbollah is still here in southern Lebanon today and they remain armed and unbowed.

The might is in Hezbollah’s grass roots, door to door, precinct style of taking care of people.
Taking the trash out, making the schools run and operating senior centers count for a lot.

Make no mistake about it: asymmetric warfare is no longer a concept.

The Professors of the University of Hezbollah have just rocketed past all the theoretical thinkers at cushy U.S. war colleges.

As Israel struggles to retrieve all its lumbering armor from Lebanon, much of it borne on flatbed trucks, the “freedom fighters”(as they call themselves and their neighbors call them) of Hezbollah are scraping up the debris of war, buying furniture for homeless Lebanese people, handing out cash, and working toward restoring Lebanon.

But Hezbollah is not just rebuilding southern Lebanon with spades. Bulldozers are already working. More importantly, an on the ground neighborhood-by neighborhood network of caring for people and looking after their needs, from cell phones to homes, is in progress.

The unmistakable outcome of this war, in Arab minds, is this: we (Hezbollah, Syria and Iran) care about you (the Arab people). The US (Great Satan) and Israel only want to deal with your problems by killing you and destroying your home.” CONTINUED

Syria is a failed state the vultures are beginning to feed on. Assad has no options except to salvage what he can. Maybe with Iran's backing he can have an Alawite-Shi'ite rump state. This implies that militia's and/or jihadis would control the rest of the country.

You may not like how the Israelis act, but, with Turkey, they are one of two stable countries in the region that are not monarchies. Lebanon isn't a monarchy, but, it's government is very shaky. Sunni-Shi'ite problems will negatively affect Lebanon. Time will tell if Jordan is able to retain it's stability. One possibility is that Jordan and the West Bank will unite, now that the PLO seems to have failed. This seems to leave Hamas and Gaza, with it's off shore gas deposits, a question.

It is a well established fact that Hizbollah, who you seem to praise, is controlled by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Unfortunately what ever else they are, the Shi'ites in Iran, with their well documented prostitution, and I'm not talking about short term marriage contracts, are hypocrites. If Sunni-Shia conflict worsens, Hizbollah will just be part of the problem.

As for Shi'ites caring about Sunni Arabs, give me a break!

Thank u Gray for ur informative post I do share ur enthusiasm about the fact that IDF is nothing but a cruel organisation. But plz let me tell u something about HezbSatan they r not the savior u think they r they have mastered the art of bluffing and r doing well with it I wud suggest 1st of all u look in to the History of shite and it Jewish pioneers. Having said I am not talking about any CONSPIRACY THEORY but the history of Shism itself.
The motives of Hezbsatan and its follower has been portection and propagation of shism and destruction of Muslims as a whole. They will not stop until they r successful in doing so. Apart from the atrocities it has committed in Syria it has done nothing when it comes to protect the wider Muslim community unless they r Shias and on top of that the brutal killings of Sunnis in everywhere they exist.
Their fight against Israel? They have DONE NOHTING SIGNIFICANT except launching rocket attacks in Israel that has killed INNOCENT people and THATS it. As a middle way between doing nothing and firing off his arsenal, Mr Nasrallah could escalate his movement’s efforts to attack Israeli tourists and diplomats.

Look at what they did to people in Bahrain when they started their riots in many cases they attacked unarmed local and expatriates . This is a just a small example http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Timeline of Hezbollah Violence
Hezbollah and its history of international terrorism and violence:
1982: Israel invades Lebanon to drive out the PLO's terrorist army, which had frequently attacked Israel from its informal "state-within-a-state " in southern Lebanon. Hezbollah, a Shiite group inspired by the teachings and revolution of Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini, is created with the assistance of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. The group is called Hezbollah–or "party of God"– after initially taking responsibility for attacks under the name "Islamic Jihad." (Not to be confused with the Palestinian terror organization Islamic Jihad.)
July 19, 1982: The president of the American University in Beirut, Davis S. Dodge, is kidnapped. Hezbollah is believed to be behind this and most of the other 30 Westerners kidnapped over the next ten years.
April 18, 1983: Hezbollah attacks the U.S. embassy in Beirut with a car bomb, killing 63 people, 17 of whom were American citizens.
Oct. 23, 1983: The group attacks U.S. Marine barracks with a truck bomb, killing 241 American military personnel stationed in Beirut as part of a peace-keeping force. A separate attack against the French military compound in Beirut kills 58.
Sept. 20, 1984: The group attacks the U.S. embassy annex in Beirut with a car bomb, killing 2 Americans and 22 others.
March 16, 1984: William F. Buckley, a CIA operative working at the U.S. embassy in Beirut, is kidnapped and later murdered.
April 12, 1984: Hezbollah attacks a restaurant near the U.S. Air Force Base in Torrejon, Spain. The bombing kills eighteen U.S. servicemen and injures 83 people.
Dec. 4, 1984: Hezbollah terrorists hijack a Kuwait Airlines plane. Four passengers are murdered, including two Americans.... And so on.
They have done NOTHING significant when it comes to warfare and it will remain so and their bluffing will go on.

It is really difficult to deal with you old guys who have had a brain aneurism, a stroke or have Alzheimer's Disease, combined with failing vision so you misread the posts and can not respond properly.

First: Please get medical treatment for your physical problems.

Second: In the US we have nurses who take care of people like you. Try to get one to read you the posts and explain them to you, if necessary.

Third: See a psychiatrist about your conspiracy fantasies like your thought I would work for the Zionists and Israeli hawks.

If you follow my advise I'm sure the poor quality of your life will increase.

By the way, I am not a physician.

And so this man identifies the people who pay him to write this garbage! He pretends to hate Jews as a cover for his paid attacks against Arabs.
Proof has been found that anti Arab and anti Muslim Zionist groups are funding things like the American Islamic Congress, which then attacks legitimate Arab and Muslim organizations. It's surprising that similar people would bother with posts on Topix. I do not usually indulge in conspiracy theories, but, this does seem to explain this man's erratic behavior. And I bet you thought that Jews did not waste money! They are sure spending lots to try to vilify people they do not like in the US. No wonder Americans act so crazy!:>)

I once thought the same thing because he made a post referring to the OCTOBER WAR as the YOM KIPPUR WAR. No Arab refers to the 73 War as the Yom Kippur War. I also believe the Israelis bring in Arab speakers and voices and purposely make their positions untidy for esp W ears so Arabs are

Zionists are wading to save the US Jewish agenda in the Syrian War of incited internal religious rivalries , which failed many moons age.
And so was added too by international intervention by crazed murdering maniacs.
Which also failed.
Now we have the Jewish dog your governor having a go.
How is it I meaning Assad is the associate of Israel , when they are coming to save you ??


Language is a development not a mathematical precision.
Failed State could not be applied to Syria because since it seceded from Egypt over 50 years ago it has been a paragon of strength and National Unity.
Before the mainly British and French conspiracy which was the Arab Spring Syria produced 90% of their own medicines.

That is not a "failed state" in the context of a "failed state" given meaning by usage *-* that so far everyone in the world has used the term to mean, inability to unify to construct the function of state.
That is *-* until you try to give it an new meaning as of now.
Idiot.

The reporter Max Blumenthal (and do not ask me to explain his Jewish name) has recently shown that the American Islamic Congress is actually supported by the Israelis and other anti Arab and anti Muslim groups. The AIC claim to be moderates and then they attack the real moderate Muslims as radicals.

I do not like conspiracy theories which I think are usually blown out of proportion, but, I'm really starting to wonder about some of the trolls on Topix. Most people who live in counties with free speech have a 'live and let live' attitude. I attack the trolls because they will not let me post what I think without attacking me. I find it hard to believe they are just angry, nasty people with nothing better to do.
