Because it makes no sense, Why go around Lebanon to Syria, leaving your enemies at your border?


israel could of had attacks in syria as well, whether syria would stand upto israel is also a matter of debate. all i was saying is that it seems to alot of people that they picked on the little bloke in the neighbourhood, and did not go after the real culprit, which is syria.

although i think iran is only a problem america can solve, israel should be able to take on syria. i doubt israel is scared of syria, but the probably think there time will come.

do you also notice on the map how america has now circled around iran, and with lebanon like it is, syria have no allies on there borders either.

The first thing your government did was strangle them and try to provoke them. Causing the international community to cut them all off monetarily without even giving them a chance. They came into government with little or no funds,no military or police force, and instead of dealing with the new regime they dealt with the old to further make them lose face and cause internal unrest. Rather then buy gas directly from the PA , your government chose to buy it from Egypt who was purchasing it from the PA anyway. Your government did the same things to the Fatah party. They bomb their police headquarters and the next day Israel says they weren't doing enough to stop attacks. Its like so retarded there. It makes no sense.

It makes no sense to you because you cannot understand why we will not deal with a militia that refuses to renounce terrorism.

And you may try, but cannot, place the "blame" (credit?) on the US if the rest of the world decides to withhold funding from a bunch of terrorists. It would be nice, however, if we had such influence. Then we'd have been out of Iraq for over a year now, if that were true.

The Syrian army is weak and corrupt, heavily involved in black market such as smuggling and drugs. Israel would have no problem with them.

But you are missing the point that two other members have made: it would be foolish to split your defense onto two fronts, or to leave your border, which is being assailed daily, unprotected.

Answer the front door while leaving the back door wide open, is what you propose. Won't work.

And why Lebanon instead of Syria? Because that's where the Katushyas are being launched from.
