RE: Lebanon

dead children

I don’t think killing Lebanese civilians, and especially children, is going to lead to Israeli safety anytime soon. This whole excursion, started under the banner of stopping terror, is just going to put Israel at risk even more.

    The whole excursion was started when Hezbollah took Israeli soldiers captive. Arguably their response has been stronger than what I would have expected, but it is not like tensions have not been building since the 40s.

    As for civilians and children, it is not really Israel’s fault that Hezbollah launches attacks from civilian villages and forces the civilians to stay there. “Oh, you have human shields? Well never mind, keep lobbing rockets at us, I guess we can’t do anything about it”.

    It is hard for Israel to be any more at risk. They were stupidly created right in the middle of an area of the world that hates them wants them dead.

    Responding to a kidnapping situation or even the missile situation by bombing infrastructure makes zero sense. How is bombing cities going to stop Hezbollah rocket attacks? How is bombing cities going to bring their soldiers back? The idea that the kidnapping is valid justifcation for the bombing of a country is insane.

    In the end, all these actions by Israel are just going to strengthen Hezbollah.
