In the last 12 hours, the Israelis have voluntarily suspended their airstrikes for up to 48 hours. That starts to look like some of the prediction I made a few posts back. It's worth noting that spokespersons for Hezbollah made it quite clear that they would not slow down the tempo of their own operations.

If left alone long enough, we may see Hezbollah attempt to send infiltrators in to Israeli lines. The results of recent civilian deaths inside Lebanon make it highly likely that Mezbollah will not have any trouble with recruitment any time soon. If anything, we may see some units of the Lebanese army defecting to Hezbollah.

Interesting points all of you.

Some I am trying not to find amusing but i do... lol. The strike the match post made me laugh. But was good to see sum serious views aswell.

The sad thing that is becoming more and more apparent is that Hezbollah will not stop untill they ARE stopped.

If I were Ehud Olmert, this is what i would do.

1)Make sure Syria and Iran could not resuply Hezbollah. (which he did) thats 5 pts to mr Olmert.

2) Have a momentary drawback of attacks after the accidental bombing in Qana. (did that too!! 5 more pts)

3) Ask for the immediate deployment of an international defence force in Southern Lebanon. Wait for Hezbollah to proove him right and attack the international peacekeepers. Then BOMB THE # OUTTA THOSE SCUMBAGS and say "told you so" to every1 that is pissing him off

The wheels of U.N. bureaucracy move so slow. I doubt we will see a peacekeeping force on the ground until just before Christmas. That gives the Israelis a long time to fish or cut bait.

Imagine this scenario:

8/14/06: United Nations security council passes a resolution calling for a cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah. Language in the resolution strongly recommends that Israel pull its troops out of Lebanon. Hezbollah is asked to stop launching rockets in to Israel and withdrawl to a distance of five miles from the border.

8/16/06: Bowing to pressure from the United States and numerous calls from Europian leaders, PM Olmert gives the order to pull back. "We have no wish for further bloodshed. As we respect the wishes of the international community, we hope that the Hezbollah leaders will do the same."

If I were him I'd abide by the many, many UN resolutions stating Israel should curb its nazi actions.

I'd stop bombing women & children in a genocidal campaign.

I'd stop my 'lebensraum' invasion of another sovereign state.

I'd offer to pay for the humanitarian aid needed to restore the Lebanese infrastructure, and save the Lebanese people from starvation caused by my nazi forces rather than let the World's charities pick up the tab.

I'd stop the SS/IDF attacking the UN and TV crews when it suits them.

I'd ask forgiveness from the Arabs and the Jewish victims of similar nazi campaigns for conducting such an evil campaign

I'd apologise to the Israeli people for uniting the Arab world against Israel and the inevitable blood price they will pay.

Then I'd kill myself and hope there is no God

It looks like the Israelis decided to do what I predicted earlier in this thread.

Israel Widens Offensive

I am no fan of Israel, but I am a realist. Hezbollah is not a country, and it's not a government, and it's not a uniformed army. Israel is. The Hezzies are an organized movement, and they do have pieces of the things I mentioned, but they don't answer to anybody except puppet masters in other countries.

Like it or not, Israel has to push back. They're showing a lot of teeth, and very little political skill just now...but...UNless somebody steps up to own this thing, it'll go on indefinitely. As a recognized nation with a uniformed army, that makes them "it" for the moment.

If and when the United Nations can stop arguing over what to have for lunch, they might be able to bring something to the table, other than a napkin. With some luck, the IDF may be able to force Hezbollah to the negotiations table.

Let's try this again. Nowthat Mr. Olmert has played his hand, what advice would you have for him now? His war got off to a slow start, and now he's allowed his government to be hand-cuffed by the U.N. Would you approve of his current course of action, or would you advise him to act differently?

posted on Jul, 13 2008 @ 12:25 PM
Maybe Olmert can start by paying back the $100,000 he stole from a disabled childrens charity, to fund his lavish lifestyle. What an absolute low life. I hope he rots in prison.

If I was Olmert I would look in the mirror and say

"Holy Moses...i look too damn British and European to fit the part of a middle eastern hebrew guy. The others before me did as well except for Yitzhak Shamir ....something doesnt seem right here. I mean it seems many of our citizens have the olive skin thing going on and we do not".

If I were Ehud Olmert, I would stop rattling my saber for Iran. I would pay closer attention to the building scandal that engulfs me....

But then again, if I were actually Ehud Olmert, I would do (and would have done already) everything in my capabilities to bring Peace with the Palestinians. Even if it meant giving up Nuclear Weapons for the safety and peace of the Region. Even if that meant evicting Israelis from Palestinian areas. Even if it meant actually letting UN Advisors in to document our treatment of the Palestinians. Even if it meant disbanding our Biological and other Weapons of Mass Destruction programs. Even if it meant admitting to the Fascist atrocities committed by Israelis against Palestinians, some rivaling actions of the Nazis. If I were Ehud Olmert, that is what I would do....

I doubt that is what was being asked for though...

Well said DocMoreau, you earned a star, but unfortunately people like Olmert don't have a conscience.
