Hezbollah down to 50% capacity

The air force was told to crank it up because the operation time left is not very long. So they need to make it count. Here in Haifa we had three (count them) siren warnings within short pauses of each other, at least six rockets hit my area. The north is being heavily bombarded right now with Carmiel, Tverias, zpat, Malot, and Roch Pina. One dead in Nahariya. This all happened in about 20 minutes.

Kind of clashes with the title of this post, doesn't it? Well not necessarily. Nasrallah is firing wildly now, with no accuracy, he's shooting whenever and where ever he can. He wants an unconditional ceasefire and in his eyes this is what will get him that. Fat chance.

There is talk of quick infantry missions, the object is not to stay there long but get things done. This is going to go on for a week or two more at least, personally I'm safe, thanks for your concern.

Updates as they occur.

Note: I've been asked and will give an interview to Roger L. Simon of Pajamas Media. The last interview they had was with Daniel Ayalon, the Israeli Ambassador.

  • Good to hear you're safe.

    I've been watching the news channels, and once again there are all sorts of things going on over there, my thoughts are with the people, may they all remain safe.

    Thank you again for sharing your observations of how daily life is during this time, time within the bunker, and views on the crisis.

    The world is listening.

  • Bunker Blogger, it sounds like Iran's Hezbollah's wants to pick a fight with the US and draw us in as well, according to a Reuters article. The article quotes the leader of Iran's Hezbollah: "We are only waiting for the Supreme Leader's green light to take action. If America wants to ignite World War Three ... we welcome it." Maybe this dumb son of a bitch ought to recall who won the previous two world wars, and should pay special attention to how exactly the last one ended? If WWIII is here, at least we'll stop playing all nice and actually try to win for once.

    Good luck in the bunker,

    Mr. Kite, USA

  • I hope your ground forces don't have to go into Lebanon. It's always a lot easier to get in than get out. It's also easier for the Terrorist type enemy to hit your ground forces than aviation or sea power. If Israeli troops do go in, I'm sure they'll do the same professional job I saw them doing in Lebanon in 1982 and 1983. Good luck.

  • "Israeli spokesmen are saying that they want to finish off Hizbullah. But you can't finish off a mass movement among 1.35 million people. Besides, there wouldn't be any Hizbullah if Israel had not invaded Lebanon in 1982 and occupied the south for 18 years. Israel's grabby occupation radicalized and helped mobilize the Lebanese Shiites. They aren't going to become less radical and less mobilized as a result of the current Israeli assault."

  • I've been following your blog today. I am full of admiration for Israel's stand against Hezbollah Whilst there is concern over the impact the war is having on Lebanese civilians many people here and in other countries understand and sympathise with you.

    Good luck - DON'T GIVE IN!!!

  • Ales, for $500, am I allowed to guess the Jeopardy question of the week?

    We got a two-fer. Nasrallah has run up the mountain, to the drug lord's lairs. It "was" called HARMEL. SOON TO BE HORMEL. And, in a few weeks, when the dust settles, you'll need wall scrapers to take off the DNA. To see who went where? In a flash of light? Or like a spray from a paint can? I bet the costs of illegal drugs now goes through the ceiling.

    Oh, yes. And, in the Ba-Kak-ta Valley, again in a few weeks, the bulldozers will smooth out about six miles of land. And, there will be a safe zone. (Heck, after WW2 the Japanese learned to play baseball. Because peace brought them benefits. Here? The crowd's too devoted to soccer. A ball game for girls.) But the potential's there. And, if it's baseball, you'll be able to spend innings watching the grasses grow. While up in HARMEL, soon to be called HORMEL, the grasses won't grow back into the production lines they used to know. Do I care?

    As to the future of the black hats, and their religion of hate. Hate, of course, continues to sell. But to allow a missile silo in your living room? Nope. That won't sell. Too many personal experiences are adding up for the idiots who didn't now what munitions dumps do when rockets hit them.

    The diplomatic-pants-dancers will also have a lot to answer for. Since they swore the Jooos would never hit a Lebanese site; as long as everybody acted like Abbas. Much too weak to do much but cash their checks. In America, there's very little sympathy for cash-checkers like that.

    While the bullets will still fly among the tent dwellers. Heck, they bring AK-47's to weddings. You want them to stop celebrating, now?

    Gaza meanwhile needs a name change. May I recommend GAZOO? CAROL HERMAN

  • Hello,
    I've heard about your blog from a catalan online newspaper.
    I only want to desire good luck to you and to all israelian people who are suffering the bombs, but i want to say too, than killing innocent civilians is not a solution. What do you obtain bombing an airport, a port, a bridge, an electric central? What you are doing is destroying things than have costed milion dollars build them, and cause serious problems to all the innocent lebanese people (the great majority). I think than violence only generates more violence. Israel may be sufficient intelligent to understant this. Bombing cities or occupy palestinian land is a cause of violence, not its end.
    Good luck from Catalonia.

  • bombing the airstrip is briliant!
    think about it, maybe it has cevilien implecations, but because the airstrip is down, roads are down, and all - Hizballa cant move in more weaponery and is assentialy cut off from any military supply. it only causes economical damage for the short run, but its improtant when you talk about suppling Hizballa.

  • "Hezbollah down to 50% capacity"

    What is the basis for this figure?

    What evidence is there to suggest that Hezbollah's capacity has been eroded?

    The title is purely a slogan used as an attempt to justify killing 300+ innocent Lebanese civilians, a large proportion of them children.

  • God willing, they'll soon be drained of all their weapons of terror.
