BEIRUT, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- Israeli warplanes are carrying out intensive flights over the western sector in southern Lebanon, pan-Arab al-Jazeera TV reported Thursday.

The Lebanese army is searching the area where the Katyusha rockets were launched on Thursday morning against Israel, while UN troops intensified patrols in southern Lebanon.

Schools in southern Lebanese towns bordering Israel were closed.

MM just reading back and forth here..

The time line is interesting!!!!

I mean if we look at it why would they fire back??? "israel" ?? i mean sure she can defend herself.. but if that statement is correct and hizballah did not fire into israel then we are in some very messy waters..

Is this some op to drag the usa into greater war here??

"If the resistance is broken, it means we face a new regional situation," he told Reuters. "This will lead to dangerous developments."

Hezbollah and Iran both view Hamas as the "little brother of the regional alliance they are a part of," added Jonathan Spyer, analyst at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center think-tank near Tel Aviv.

If it were seen to be on the verge of defeat, "then there's a real possibility of Hezbollah getting into the fray," he said.

Oussama Safa of the Lebanese Center for Policy Studies described the Gaza campaign as an "Iranian-Israeli duel."

"The Israelis entered this having a score 1-0 to the Iranians after 2006. They are endeavoring to make it 1-1. If they succeed, I don't think the Iranians will sit still. They will have to do something," he said. "Depending on the nature of the results of Gaza, it might be sooner than we think."

The usa is broke.. or we think it is and what is the best way to make money???

Selling arms.. this is going to drag on unless someone gets really #off and wont play the game..

If iran gets to deep into this Russia and China come into play..

This is all leading up to a war between the USA/West and Iran, my guess is that Israel will get very badly damaged if that war does start.

But yeah, this is not good, just as it was looking good (aid gets let in, truce talks) we get this garbage.

EDIT: Grammar

This war will not end untill the jews realize they cannot take over the world. I am sorry jews, but it is not going to happen. The way I see it, "they" are moving towards one world government, global citizenship, "protection" from the destruction of the world as we know it, etc etc...

"We"(the people), seek towards, individualistic control of little societies, within the society. Little safe systems, where we can see everything that is going on.

Talk about synergy. One world government will never happen unless forced upon us, peace will never happen unless forced upon them, hence war is inevitable. And now to my point. A war has been started long ago, and the longer it lasts, the more transparent it gets. I say, get it over with. Stop playing diplomatic, stop saying one thing, then doing another. Stop psychological warfare, stop the propaganda. Just pull out your knuckles and fight, darn it... When I have to fight someone on the street I don't use scare tactics, I don't flinch and say I didn't, I knock people the @#¤ out. Do it now.

Get it over with, or mankind will never move on, we will be stuck in death and destruction for too long, and it will end humanity as we know it.

I saw this dude in the tv yesterday, he said from the first aeroplane to landing on the moon, only 60 yrs passed. Since then we have done nothing, we are getting more and more stuck, using our ressources all wrong. So get it over with, so we can move on, please. I want to see mankind pull out of this childish, mind locking circus. We have the abillity in us to do anything. No laws or rules can ever hold our true potential down. And somebody knows that.

Take care

It doesn't say much about the rockets...only that 2 people were lightly wounded.

The intent to mass kill innocent Israeli civilians is there.
The fact that Israel did NOTHING to Lebanon is still there.

Lebanon govt criticises rocket attack into Israel

BEIRUT, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The Lebanese government criticised a rocket attack from south Lebanon into Israel on Thursday, saying it was a violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution that halted a 2006 war between Hezbollah and the Jewish state.

Information Minister Tareq Mitri said he did not believe the political and military group Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran, was behind the attack.

"Hezbollah assured the Lebanese government that it remains engaged in preserving the stability in Lebanon and respects Security Council resolution 1701," the head of Mitri's office, Toufic Yannieh, quoted the minister as saying.

Ladies and germs welcome to the eve of WW3.
Enjoy the show.

This could be a few things.

1. Israel has staged the attacks to justify invading again.

2. Lebanese militants want a crack at israel too.

It seems like this whole conflict is starting to escalate. And since nothing happens without reason, why is Israel doing this? Are they trying to provoke war with Iran?

What could this mean?

Opec bans oil exports to the US. Oil prices skyrocket. Weak economy and high inflation create staginflation. The US dissintigrates. woot?

The attraction of Syria is the pipeline that runs from Iraq to the
Syrian coast, thus circumventing Iran's threat to close the Straits
of Hormuz to some extent.

Straits of Hormuz

I think they plan to mine it.

20-40% of the world's oil supply passes thru that channel.

LOL i thought for a minute it said ''Rockets from Lebanon Hits Northen Ireland''.

It would be tough for Israel but i think they could deal with fighting hamas and Hisbrother at the same time without any help.

Lets just say Iran did get involved in combat with Israel, then America gets involved. What do Russia and China do? Do they sit back and watch or do they get involved? Thats when you could call it World War 3!

this is awful i feel like i'm watching a boulder rolling down a hill towards a school and i can't do anything to stop it.

everyone in the world can see where these power games will end, its like a big game of chicken but to make it even more insane the looser get shot.

pressure from israel will now anger some arabs enough to side with iran, whatever pass or road that needs to be opened will be opened and thousands of iranian peace keepers will clash with american peace keepers, etc, etc, etc....

09 is looking to be a very interesting year, the word DOOOOOOMMMMMM springs to mind - maybe it's time i made my placard? if the end isn't nigh then i don't know what is.

posted on Jan, 8 2009 @ 07:16 AM
has anyone actuily read the report?

Israeli cabinet minister Raif Eitan said he believed Palestinians in Lebanon, not Hezbollah, were behind the attack.

but bravo to Israel
0 people killed from these crude rockets
12 civilians killed by artilery, sure the four kids that were found next to their dead mothers will hold no grudge against Israel
