The Grave Consequences of Supporting War in Lebanon claims With Israel waging an all-out war against the forces of Hezbollah, and the death toll in terms of civilian casualties mounting on a daily basis, the question of a diplomatic resolution to the crisis takes on an urgency that is being felt around the world.
Exactly what sort of a diplomatic resolution do you suggest with an opponent whose objective is to see you completely destroyed? Should Israel agree that half of its citizens will die, if Hezbollah agrees to let the other half live????.... The draft Security Council resolution co-sponsored between the United States and France is but a tragic farce, a smoke screen designed to unilaterally protect Israeli interests at the expense of all others that is so transparent no Arab nation takes it seriously (it has been rejected outright by Lebanon, Syria and Hezbollah).
The thing they object to is waiting until another strong military force is in place to prevent Hezbollah from again taking over their fortifications, and rearming, so they can kill more Jews.There are several reasons for this apparent lack of concern on the part of the primary belligerent (Israel) and its No. 1 underwriter (the United States). First and foremost is the fact that the ongoing violence being waged against Hezbollah is not, contrary to popular opinion, a knee-jerk reaction to the attack against Israel by Hezbollah that resulted in several dead Israeli soldiers and two taken prisoner. It is rather part and parcel of a long-planned strike designed not only to neutralize Hezbollah, but also its largest international supporters, namely Syria and Iran.
Admirable goals.As such, Israel (and by extension, the United States) has certain predesignated goals and objectives that need to be reached, and no cease-fire will be willingly undertaken until they are. These include the military destruction of Hezbollah and its political isolation, along with its major supporter Iran.
And before Iran gets nuclear weapons, which they would use immediately, and while they might destroy Israel, Israel's retaliation would destroy Iran and probably several other Middle East countries. And then where will the world get it's petroleum fix.Read More
