1. Same drones used in Turkey against Kurds
Ahmed G√ľndogan ,   CH   (04.27.12)
The same drones are used by the Turkish army against Kurds. I think, that Turkey is supplying drones to Iran.
2. We should cut our defense budget even
jason white ,   afula, israel   (04.27.12)
more. bibi wants to weaken Israel and leave the citizens of the north and south in danger. The min of treasury is more interested in full bank accounts than fully protecting Israel. Now is the time for the I.D.F. to receive billions of dollars to buy combat aircraft. If b.o. is reelected,G-d forbid, then we will not be able to purchase combat aircraft. We need to examine the use of the neutron bomb on so. lebanon.Let their deaths show our "friends" and enemies we mean business. Whether we destroy our enemies or not, we will be hated. Better we destroy them than they destroy us! If we were smart there would be demonstrations 24/7 calling for bibi and ehud buraq to resign along with gantz and his gang. The above should be banned from politics for life.
3. Times...they are a changing....
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (04.27.12)
Numbers arent everything... But LEBANESE sentiments ARE And ALL Lebanese apart from these Hezbollah Ahmadinejad funded Gangsters quietly WAIT for the day that they attack Israel And when that happens and they are busy fighting Israel all Lebanese will queue up to finish the job and CLEANSE out Lebanon of the rot that is Hezbollah Everyone in South Lebanon KNOWS where the Hezbollah missile dumps, the CC Centres, the Launchers and even the Revolutionary Guard Quarters are based And ALL this will be BROADCAST when the time comes to the world to hasten their demise

I hope so much that you are right. This kind of scenario will reduce somewhat the total destruction Lebanon will have to suffer for the Hizzis adventures....
5. Okay, bring it on!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.27.12)
Make sure all your affairs are in order. Don't you just HATE contested estates? Prepare to die, assholes. We know quite well that the front you present to the world -- snaggled-tooth keffiyeh wearing monsters -- isn't hardly the target. Never fear. We aren't looking for them. We're going after the polished, Western-educated terrorists clad in expensive Savile Row suits and more expensive hand-made Italian shoes. We KNOW who you are; we know WHERE you are. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. Israel is coming. You are going. 'Bye.
6. Hezbollah are wasting their money
zionist forever   (04.27.12)
UAVS don't come cheap, they are easy targets and their value to a terrorist organization is limited. All it takes is a single missile to shoot down the slow moving things which have no defenses, don't even need to waste missiles because the cannon on the F16 would probably do the job. Hezbollah you guys want to waste your money then send out more UAVS I am sure the IAF pilots appreciate the opportunity to train against real targets rather than just in the simulator.
7. They do need an airfield to be launched
William ,   Israel   (04.27.12)
unless Hizbullah is hiding them in civilian buildings, they are being housed in warehouses, which the IDF will probably hit en masse within the first 30 minutes of any war, just like in 2006, but with much more ferocity.

Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (04.27.12)
Sammy writes. "Everyone in South Lebanon KNOWS where the Hezbollah missile dumps, the CC Centres, the Launchers and even the Revolutionary Guard Quarters are based" Everyone knows...except for the UN forces who are supposed to prevent this. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!

UAVS don't need an airfield to launch. Some of the small - medium sized ones can be launched via a catapult system so put your UAV & launch catapult in the back of a truck go set it all up in a field somewhere and leave and come back to reclaim it when it needs to be refueled. Even the really big ones you could probably get away with launching from a large field rather than a proper runway. They might not need dedicated airfields to launch from but as these UAVS Hezbollah have are not armed they make easy targets as they fly nice and slow and steady and have no way to defend themselves. Use the cannon on the F16 or a missile and its easy enough to shoot down something like that.

You desperately need help Sarah B. Your overflowing Jewish testosterone is adversely affecting your mental faculties...
12. #6 Idiotic Zionist forever
(04.27.12)
Are you thick Zionist? The article says that Hezbollah is getting them free of charge, so how could they be wasting their money? Don't you feel stupid?
13. FAIRLY AMBITIOUS STATEMENT......#7
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (04.27.12)
Your thirty minutes prediction will be worth noting if there is a conflict.Day-dreaming?
14. @ Blame Obama, Blame Obama
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (04.27.12)
that's all you do is blame Obama, however I can finally give you props for blaming BIBI for once even though as a American tax payer I say America should cut it's aid to Israel so Israel can take it's short hands and put them in it's deep pockets. I know you will say I am a self hating Jew etc etc etc, however I can say that you are an Anti-American racist for your multiple anti Obama comments for not understanding America looks out for America and that's the way it is and that's the way it should be. America has to cut all foreign aid among-st other budget cuts or become a third world nation.
15. #14 Obama is not looking out for America
