... from yahoo news
and because hezbollah was armed(appox 11,000 missiles) and ready for some type
of retaliation from Israel...
that is why the Israeli soldiers were captured and taken into hezbollah controlled
areas in Lebanon....for future transport? into Syria??
the thing is, Nobody can predict just what incident will spark a larger conflict and mobilization....it turns out that the 2 Israeli soldiers were the
the larger question is ??are the 2 soldiers taken prisoner, the ultimate reason?
or could any incident have been sufficed, because in a larger strategy NOW was the time for a southwestern (of Syria & Iran boundaries) military
It is not too far fetched to speculate that the US/UK ally Israel is engaging in a
flanking action, and causing Hamas-&-Hezbollah faction (proxy warriors for Syria=Iran) to continue the escalation of conflict with Israel.
Meanwhile, the southeastern Gulf states, UAE, Saudi & others are still getting the anti-missile batteries and other defensive weapony for the
anticipated Gulf waters
conflict, waged by Iran aginst the shipping lanes.
with the neocons, their OSP (office of special plans), PNAC, and their larger strategic policy, this Israeli-vs-Hezbolla/Hamas exchange is principally
along with feeling out just how much these factions are armed & funded & encouraged by the larger regional powers of Syria & Iran
: the UAV attack on the blockade ship could not have been accomplished by hezbolla fighters alone...
this was most likely a select unit trained/from either Syria or Iran...
testing their proficiency under combat conditions, invaluable intel & experience
"Open War", is just what hezbollah set in motion, because the other 'Axis' desired
an open war, for their own needs & ends.
imo, the other axis is US/UK/IS
