War, what is it good for?

Absolutely nothing, say it again now

Bairut last night, Now that they bombed Haifa a few times it's hard to imagine how Beirut will look like tomorrow.

The thing is Nasrallah made a mistake starting all of this, he's in for way more then he bargained for. At first the French prime minister said that it's a disproportional use of force on our part, now even he says that Hezbollah should be disarmed. Most of the world wants us to do it.

Nasrallah counted on the Israeli civilians to be intimidated and rally against the actions of our government, but exactly the opposite is happening. And even the some of the Arab nations are condemning Nasrallah.

He is mostly unsupported by the Lebanese themselves, as Lebanon was amidst a tourist and economy boom and was supposed to regain its status as "Paris of the middle east". Now the billions of dollars he cost them in tourism and damages, and deaths... he isn't very popular there.

Hezbollah is on the run, and now Israel has a great opportunity to finish that organization. The Lebanese prime minister promised to deploy troops along it's south border to guard it. So in effect after all of this is done Israel will be out of reach of Hezbollah's rockets and have a safe north border for the first time in a long time.

  • I can't imagine how horrible this is for you and your family. I'm nice and safe here in Australia so it's impossible for me to appreciate what you're going through. I pray that you and your family are safe.

    Lets hope that the Lebanese people and government start to act and take responsibility for the criminals on their soil before the IDF has to do something drastic to protect innocent civilians in Israel.

  • Sorry, but This was not started by Hizbullah. If the ISraeli government hadn't continually annexed land that was not theirs to annex and create illegal settlements throughout the land that was supposed to be Palestine you wouldn't have this problem today.

  • havent you asked yourself this question,dude? The fact that Israel exists, by annexing an occupying palestinian land of course, is creating a problem in the Middle East? What if Israel was not meant to be?

  • keep your head down and stay safe.

    you hit the nail on the head with most of the intelligent arab world supporting the israeli actions.

    they may be horrified but they know what needs to be done.

    some good will come of this.

    keep up the good work.

  • this is an interesting point of view... im lebanese and personally i dont give a shit if israel bombs the living hell out of dahiya (hizbollahs main location) but im relatively pissed about all the other bombings. i hope that after this something changes because it would have been a useless war if hizballah isnt disarmed. thats why i hope israel go through with and kill nasrallah too. that bastard made me miss Deep Purple!! im mainly pissed about the timing of this event because lebanon was having a record year for tourism, after a dissapointing one in 2005, and its gonna take a while for lebanon to rebuild itself and the economy. i might seem a bit unaffected by all the bombs and thats because im far away from them, i figure if i was in beirut or southern lebanon i this post would look more like the third one.

  • We're all in this shit together. I think the Israelis and the Lebanese are both suffering as a result of this war.

    Keep your head low and try to remain safe.
