Hezbollah Infrastructure Destroyed

click to enlarge

. . . at least that is what Ehud Olmert is claiming - "The infrastructure of Hizbollah has been entirely destroyed. More than 700... command positions of Hezbollah were entirely wiped out by the Israeli army. All the population which is the power base of the Hezbollah in Lebanon was displaced." Israel sent 60 D-9 Bulldozers to flatten all Hezbollah lookout posts and spider holes along a 1.2 mile deep zone along Israel's border.

Israel has struck deeper into Lebanon, capturing several Hezbollah fighters from a hospital in Baalbeck in the Bekaa valley. Fighting is reported as far into Lebanon as Qana and the Christian city of Mayjaroun. The IDF has some 10,000 troops inside Lebanon now.

Israel has changed course, listened to Israeli public opinion, and is now aggressively rooting out Hezbollah.

Damascus is doing a little saber-rattling: "SYRIAN President Bashar al-Assad has placed his military on full alert, citing "regional challenges", and vowed to continue supporting the "Palestinian and Lebanese resistance more than ever".

We are lucky to have such a capable and brave ally in Israel. The Lebanese in general don't seem to see it this way, but Israel is doing for Lebanon that which it cannot do for itself. Lebanon will never be truly independent and sovereign until it rids itself of the Hezbollah terrorist mini-state in its midst. If that happens, Israel will have secured the Cedar Revolution, and Lebanon will ultimately be grateful.

During a storm branches are knocked down. It cleans the loose debris from the trees. It may appear to be a mess on the ground, BUT it is really a cleansing. That is how the nature of this Isreal, Hezbollah war appears to me. Hezbollah needed to be knocked down...

60 D-9 Bulldozers to ...

SIxty of the D9 model would just about cover Connecticut - parked!

Heh, and most if not all of them are armored D9's as well!

Israel should confront Syria's support of Hezbollah and Hamas. Terrorist organizations whose formal charters call for the destruction of Israel. Support for these organizations amounts to acts of war against Israel by Syria and Iran.

Israel needs their own updated equivalent of the Monroe doctrine, "any nation who publically supports terrorist activities against Israel has in effect declared war upon Israel. Israel will then consider that a state of war does exist between itself and the offending nation and will act as necessary to remove the threat to its national existence."

Unfortunately Olmert is not the man to issue a new Israeli doctrine. Olmert merely wants to 'lessen' the annoyance of hezbollah and hamas.
