about their opwn lives. Keep the war drums going & collect the cas from your mullah masters. The Muslim mass is just too slow and stupid to figure this out on their own. That is the method in Iran, NKorea and now the newly addition, Trukey. They all joiniong the war party.
2. Preemptive justified
Eisenfeld Michel ,   Ashkelon   (02.07.18)
Ok . hezbolla gives another reason to a preemptive attack on them.Thank you for publicly expose your intentions.
3. Bye bye Nasrallah
This time won't be like the second Lebanon war. Israel just took delivery of the first of three squadrons of F35 joint strike fighters. This, along with the shipment of bunker buster bombs we acquired during the Obama administration, will see not only a savage destruction of Hezballah tunnels and infrastructure in southern Lebanon, but will also send a message to Iran that Natanz nuclear reactor is next. We couldn't strike Iran's reactors until now because they are buried miles underground, but our F35s and bunker busters will take care of that. :)
4. Such an attack
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (02.07.18)
Such an attack and the potential firestorm that follows will destroy hopes for development of Lebanese fields, will affect Cyprus development of her fields and Palestinian development of fields offshore of Gaza

It will also create oil pollution in the Med on such a massive scale that will last for decades and impact on ALL COUNTRIES around the Med..

Surely its in their interests of the EU also to sound the warning bells over Hezbollah threats to attack oilfields that could severly impact the economies of countries surrounding the Med for years to come..and that of course INCLUDES Lebanon..but what do Hezbollah care?

It will material affect global energy supplies and kick start a global slump

But above all any Israeli counter strike on Lebanon will be utterly devastating..while Nasrallah is safely tucked away in his bunker or else already on his way to retirement out of Lebanon, the people of Lebanon pay the price

5. Oil platforms are foreign owned in Israeli waters, so ...
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (02.07.18)
Existing platforms are owned by Noble, a US firm. Other countries are also interested in working Israel's offshore fields. These countries won't appreciate having their assets attacked. So, how many enemies do Hezbullah and Lebanon (hard to distinguish these days) want to provoke?
6. Threaten to kill the one who hold all this together
Avi L.   (02.07.18)
Threaten to kill the one who hold all this together.

The one whose elimination will bring such a chaos in the Lebanon Syria theater that Tehran doesn't even think about it and that will cause to Iran and its minions and Putin to lose everything.

The weakest link in the chain.
