2. Hezbollah is sentancing Lenanon to death.
Adam ,   Golan Heights Israel   (07.16.11)
Sad. Israel will have no choice but to depopulate and render Lebanon uninhabitable, or face destruction ourselves. It will be a very short war, with deaths in the millions. I know there are a few million Christian lebs, who know that lebanon has no quarrel with Israel. It is a pity they are too scared of their muslim countrymen to take a stand against the usurpation of their land by genocidal global jihad.
3. Thank you USA, UK, EU,and the UN!
David ,   The Galil   (07.16.11)
UN Sec Council Resolution 1701 should be called the Bush, Blair fiasco! It was supposed to have ensured that Hezbollah was disarmed and restricted to north of the Litani River, What a joke! Now their failure as endangered the lives of Israelis of all creeds! Once again the Arabs have been appeased at the expense of Israel.
4. Conventional wisdom says not many.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (07.16.11)
How many of these "sophisticated" missles Lebanon aka Hezbollah will get off before it's turned into a sheet of glass.
5. where are the UN """monitors"""...
tiki ,   belgium   (07.16.11)
Who are 'supposed to MONITOR and STOP Hezbollah from re-arming? 'Sitting at the bay and monitoring the 'relative quiet' sail away!
6. Arming Lebanon with more Advanced Weaponry
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (07.16.11)
will help bring peace and stability to the region by making Israel think twice before invading Lebanon yet again. Mutual deterence brings peace.

the last time war between Israel and Lebanon took place, Lebanon sustained great infrastructure damage as well as loss of life. I recall Sinora crying like a baby over the damage done to Lebanon. If a new war does start between the two parties, Israel will have done more damage immediately than any of us can imagine and, this time, no one will cry for Lebanon as war was their only goal, not peace, not the saving of lives, they will have earned the destruction they seek for it will be Lebanon whose cedars will burn until there's nothing left but ashes. Mark my words. Peace is the quiet between wars, enjoy it Lebanon, it may be your last. And Doug, you should know G-d chose Israel, that's why they win and their enemies lose, every time.
8. #5 - UN Monitors are there to MONITOR
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (07.16.11)
compliance to UNSCR 1701. They are not there to inforse UNSCR 1701. If they were there to inforce compliance, they would need surface to air missiles to shoot down all the illegal Israeli overflights of Lebanon and they would need ground troops to end the illegal Israeli occupation of northern Ghajar.

10. hizbullahs aim is the murder of the people of Lebanon.
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (07.16.11)
Bashar el assads regime deserves to be bombed out of existence. I for 1 hope it comes soon.
11. Dougs home will be chokc full of nazi memorabilia ...
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (07.16.11)
i'd put big money on it! Typical nazi flavoured attitude. I hope i am still living when the Doug's (nazis) of the world have been made to weep for their hatred when justice finally arrives.
12. What is the position of the idiots from the
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (07.16.11)
"Quartet" on this development...? I am just wondering... Ohh...I just forgot...building houses is a a danger for peace and deploying missiles is only a childs game...
13. #6 Did you think twice?
Yaniv ,   Israel   (07.16.11)
Did you think twice about the stupid comment you made? So as long as Israel is prevented from self-defense when attacked in your opinion, there will be peace in the region? Again, please remind what part Israel had in the Iran-Iraq war that yielded 1 million losses, Arab Spring, Al-Anfal when Saddam genocided 150 000 Kurds, Lebanese Muslims killing Lebanese Christians, slaughter of Egyptian Copts, etc. A strong Israel is what stabilize the region. If you don't understand that, you haven't done your homework. Stop being such a tool, dude!
14. Asked your compatriots who paid the price in 2006...

The American Left is rewriting history for their own purposes. Nice to see that ignorance such as yours is their guiding light. Everybody has a right to their own opinion Doug, but not to their own facts. The American right stands solidly behind Israel and always will. Should American officials seek to abandon Israel, nothing less than a civil war would ensue. And we are not the ones who depend upon Gov. for our existence. We are the ones who pay for its existence. Think about it.
