1. Iwo Jima or the Home Islands
Steve ,   Dallas USA   (02.16.13)
At the end of the war in Japan, the Japanese came up with a very effective defensive tactic. They dug deeply underground in their island fortresses. They combined this with their version of guided missile attacks - the kamikaze - and these proved devastatingly effective as well. However the US simply stopped playing that game. Instead the began firebombing and then atomic bombing the Home Islands of Japan. That ended the war. Southern Lebanon is Iwo Jima. A small island fortress which Hezbollah wants you to attack - they have the defensive advantage. Tehran and Qom are the Home Islands.
2. Steve, you read too many rah,rah, military books...
Edithann ,   USA   (02.16.13)
Iwo Jima cost us plenty and we destroyed it..But now itls up and running and very much a problem to us and the islanders...Isn't that a lesson for you in itself? Isreal's problem is over 70 years old, and you can't 'kill' yourself into peace...with your dumb solution it will be another 170 years...and still it wont be solved... .. Now go out and smell the roses, you're too much into Israel, while they're not into you at all!! TATA
3. hassan-how many times do you issue your threats
hy   (02.16.13)
stop threatening, throw your 60,000 rockets, capture one town in the galilee with 30000 shock trooops using motorized vehicles, shoot down 10 israeli planes and blow up dimona and 5 boats, the airport. Go ahead do it. Then we'll see what molten earth in lebanon looks like.
4. Death warrant
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
I do believe that Nasrallah has lost it. Threatening Israel's power plants? Isn't it amazing how Israel has managed to blow up Hezbollah's main weapons depots, thwarted additional arms from reaching Lebanon and taken out Iran's "ambassador" to Hezbollah? Israel can detect a launch from Lebanon long before Nasrallah's wet dream of attacking an Israeli power plant will be realized. Of course, then Lebanon is over. Finished.

ronen ,   ashdod israel   (02.16.13)
no reason to play the game by their rules
6. Long live the resistance.
WAS ,   Manchester, UK   (02.16.13)
Hassan Nasrallah is an inspiration to all freedom loving people around the globe. Hezbollah is just too formidable for Israel to Pre-Emptively strike & destroy. One can only hope the Palestinian resistance in Gaza also reach the prowess & formidability as there counterparts in Lebanon. It also must be said, Arabs & specifically Palestinians do not hate Jews, Muslims, Christians & Jews lived peacefully & harmoniously for thousand's of years until Herzl's poisonous cult of zionism was established.
7. Lebanese always crying & begging Israel to not invade
Avi   (02.16.13)
Stop being terrorists and there's nothing to fear, habibi.
8. Hezbollah
Edouard ,   Canada   (02.16.13)
They are terrorist They must be treated like it We must destroy them to the last one of them And we will be able to achieve a deal peace with moderate element of the Arab world
9. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
Oh! Then all those massacres of Jews by Moslem hordes is a figment of historical imagination? Hezbollah isn't formidable, by the way. Just a bunch of terrorists who happen to wear their toilets on their heads. Israel can crush Hezbollah in seconds. Not years, not months, not days, not hours, not minutes. SECONDS. You would do well to keep that in mind.
10. Rat speaking from his rat hole!
Rachel ,   US   (02.16.13)
11. Lebanon used to being in the dark?
Dmitry ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
“They know that their energy plants and their airports… are under threat. Their power plants would require six-months to be repaired. Can Israel remain six months in the dark? Lebanon, on the other hand, is used to being without electricity.” I didn't think that idiot would use the fact that Arabs can't build a modern, functioning, multiethnic society as one of his talking points against evil Israel, but I guess I overestimated his intelligence on this. The fact that Nasrallah is getting senile is probably good news for Israel, he's liable to make more mistakes.
12. Nasrallah speaks of self-defense, a concept ....
Mikesailor ,   Miami, FL   (02.16.13)
apparently foreign to Israelis. He does not speak of 'pre-emptive war' or the 'sneak attacks ' to be performed by Lebanon which, unlike Israel, does not make a practice of attacking its neighbors. Israel feels that it, and it alone, can attack anyone it wants, at any time, with impunity. Guess what? The 'impunity' enjoyed by israel is ending quickly if not extinguished already. Attacks by Israel will only harden the reolve of those attacked and with the lethality of weaponry increasing exponentially, Israel can no longer pretend that its actions won't engender consequences.
13. #9 Sarah B
Avi ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
"Israel can crush Hezbollah in seconds. Not years, not months, not days, not minutes."... Man oh man, Sarah B, I wonder who has a taller nose, you or Pinochio?
14. #9 Sarah B
Avi ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
Sarah, your nose seem to be growing by the second. Not by the year, not by the month, not by the day, not by the hour, not by the minute. By the SECOND... Where were you hiding when we were dodging Hezbollah missiles in 2006?
15. # 6 WAS.Muslims,Christians & Jews
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (02.16.13)
lived peacefully & harmoniously.In 1066 Muslims in Granada massacred 4000 Jews,many more pogroms followed in lands under Muslim control,not so long ago Muslims killed more than a Million Armenians in a Muslim country called Turkey,today, Christians are being killed in Iraq,Pakistan,Christians are forced out from Betlehem,Gaza,Lebanon,so much for Muslim tolerance,when Muslims kill each other in Syria,Afganistan,Pakistan,what will they do to none Muslims ?.
16. To: Dmitry at No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
It is impossible to overestimate Nasrallah's "intelligence." He doesn't have any.
17. # 6
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (02.16.13)
Leave it to Muslims to be inspired by a guy that wears a diaper on his head and hides in a hole.
18. #6 Thousands of years huh?
Ze'ev ,   USA   (02.16.13)
That is the problem with Arabs right there. They swallow their own propaganda with out thinking. Let us do some simple math. Mohamed comes into the scene in what, 570? So Islam has not been around for 2000 years yet... Maybe he meant 100's and maybe by peaceful he meant the Christians and Jews where (in Islam's eyes) happy to be 2nd class.
19. Hezbollah's window to fire will be shut faster than
Stephen in New York   (02.16.13)
Nasrallah only confirms estimates of Hezbollah's targeting priorities. Sure Hezbollah can do some damage considering the number of rockets they've deployed, but Hezbollah's window to fire will be shut faster than Nasrallah can imagine in his worse nightmare.
20. Nasrallah the drama queen
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.16.13)
nasrallah really thinks that israel would sit idly by while the shia terror entity's terror thugs try to destroy israel. the shia terror entity, being assiduously courted by obama, is the greatest threat to world peace at present and will remain so as long as the vile regime in tehran is allowed to exist. this regime currently has an occupying force in syria and in lebanon. the shia terrorists threaten the state of israel existentially on a daily basis. a war with the shia terror entity and its terror proxies is inevitable.
21. All this misery courtesy of a lunatic leftist retreat.
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.16.13)
Think about it, my fellow Jews. The ONLY reason Israel is suffering all this misery from Lebanon is because of our lunatic leftist retreat from our South Lebanon Security Zone. Virtually ALL of Israel's problems are direct results of leftist retreats, concessions and other lunacy. The clear answer is to reverse the damage. Retake our South Lebanon Security Zone forever. Retake all our lands we so foolishly abandoned. End the suffering. Realize that leftist ideas are lunatic and should never be taken seriously.
22. Mikesailor # 12
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (02.16.13)
Israels actions are the consequences of the actions of hostile Muslims. It's a two way street Mike and the Muslims are slow learners. Nasrallah and others like him can pretend they can win a war against Israel but it isn't going to happen. Unless their attitudes change they are always going to be losers. Losing seems to be all they are good at. They certainly have had plenty of practice.
23. I Bleed to your hearts Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Nasrallah
Haimor ,   Danville, Ca, USA.   (02.16.13)
Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, I know you lost your brother Yonatan. I feel your pain. Mr. Hassan Nasrallah, I know you lost your son Muhammad Hadi. I feel your pain. I feel the pain of all who lost love one regardless of race, religion or ethnic back ground. My heart bleeds for every human life lost in this long going conflict. , be it a Muslim, Jewish, Christian or others. Be it a Syrian soldier or a civilian fighting with the opposition in the Syrian conflict. Be it an American soldier or an Iraqi. When is this killing going to stop!? My heart bleeds to your heart Mr. Netanyahu, to your heart Mr. Nasrallah, and the heart of whoever reads this comment and has the power: I BEG YOU PLEASE PUT STOP TO ALL THIS KILLING... His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, in his January 1, 2013 message for the celebration of the world day of peace said “PEACE IS NOT A DREAM OR SOMETHING UTOPIAN; IT IS POSSIBLE”. I am sure my Muslim, Jewish, and Christian friends and all people who love life bleed with me.
24. 6 60 000+ Syrians were killed and you worry about trivia
25. to N. 21
iSnad ,   Kuala Lumpur   (02.16.13)
your problem is not what you would (staying in Lebanon) but what you could. you could do nothing but "ESCAPE"
26. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
Can you spell "nuclear power," kitten?
27. To: No. 14
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
In Israel, wondering why we cared so much about collateral damage. Where were you?
28. To: No. 12
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
I'm sorry, but you've lost me here. When did Nasrallah achieve the rank of a head of state? Hezbollah is a terrorist organization, after all. Terrorist organizations are not countries. As to engendering consequences .... when terrorist organizations attack countries, consequences ensue. Just ask Afghanistan and Iraq. The United States of America marched in pretty quickly, although the U.S. didn't achieve much there. Not to mention Somalia. Libya. Yemen. Waziristan. Fortunately for us all, Israel is not the United States. We'll get the job done ... and you'll take the credit. Status quo ante.
29. To: No. 25
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.16.13)
Really? Israel can drop a 20 kiloton solution on Lebanon pretty much whenever. Perhaps whomever is left in Lebanon can then retreat to Malaysia. Bet you'll love that.
30. Singing for his supper
Cynthia ,   USA   (02.16.13)
No doubt his speech was written by his Iranian masters who pay his salary and have him on a tight leash. They don't want a repeat of his careless behavior in 2006. Can see why he remains in hiding and does not speak in front of the people. Hezbollah's role in the murder of 60,000 Syrians and growing Lebanese opposition to this occupier must be worrisome.
