The same thing happended with Israel/Hezbollah and what have they done? If Israel was interested in gettnig back the two soldiers, they would have
picked up the phone and said "give them back or we will bomb your infrastructure". They're not interested in the soldiers or have any concern for
Uh? Are you on the same planet? Um, Israel DID ask for its soldiers back. Many times. They said if you don't give them back, we will bomb you.
BTW, Hezbollah NEVER fired ANY rockets at ANY civilian areas until Israel started attacking CIVILIANS. Hezbollah targeted MILITARY and then Israel
Um, hello? Are you serious? Did you even watch any of the worldwide televised event unfold. You know the one, that one that, um, families were
pulled from their beloved homes, crying and screaming because they just didn't understand why they were giving up the only home they've known? I
did. I caught that one. Those scenes hurt my heart so bad. I hurt for those people, but I also felt proud. Proud that this was finally coming to
an end. Finally, one of the nations was big enough to negotiate a deal and walk away.
Funny, cause this beloved piece of land wasn't returned in the way is was obtained. The Israels developed it, built beautiful beach homes and
resorts. Made this ugly piece of desert into a thriving , beautiful tourist attraction.
If it were the other way around, would the building still be standing? Or, would they rather destroy them before allowing someone else to have them?
I think history should answer this one.
Did they hear a 'Thank you' (not that they asked for one). No. They heard rockets and missiles, daily. The Hez would get as close as they could
and launch these things into Israel's back yard. This has been going on ever since they gave them gaza.
What did Israel do? They moved their families closer in, so not to be struck by these missiles. Still went on their day, with their lives.
Day in, and day out. Missiles, bombs, rockets. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see this part on my local news. I saw this on international news. I
don't believe I would have believed it, if I didn't see it. The reporters were walking around villages, interviewing various families. No
military, not even the press reporter. Just regular civilians. Asking them how do they go on with their days with this going on in their back yard.
You know what? IT WAS LITERALLY IN THEIR BACK YARD!!! You could see the missiles dropping in the background.
Israel didn't retaliate, not until these TERRORISTS (lets not glorify their title, they are what they are) crossed their line and kidnapped a
What would you have done?
