Man, this is getting worse everyday... Now the Lebanese MP is going to side with Hezbollah? That's the biggest mistake he can make at this point in
Israel has never had a problem with Lebanon itself. However, Lebanon has never been strong enough to protect its own sovereignty which lead to the PLO
setting up camp in Southern Lebanon. That provoked the first Lebanon War and it was devastating. But now the Hezbollah has replaced the PLO in that
region. It has already provoked a war with Israel. It was short, but devastating. Although, Israel greatly under-estimated Hezbollah, it still
achieved many minor objectives in the conflict.
So it might look as if Israel is attacking "Lebanon", but its goal is to eliminate the militant groups that threaten her at its border. Also, if it
weren't for Syrian influence, Israel and Lebanon would've been at peace a long time ago.
Therefore, I believe it would be a grave mistake to get the Lebanese military involved. The reason is that Israel will not under-estimate anyone this
time and they will use a normal size force instead of the bullsh*t they displayed in 2006. Israel won't stop, regardless of the UN & world opinion,
until they have secured the whole region South of the Litani River. They will destroy anything in its path to achieve that objective. So if you think
the last war was devastating, this one is going to make 2006 look like a picnic. And the involvement of the Lebanese military will only cause more
damage to Lebanon.
Although the goal will be to oust Hezbollah, Israel will have to occupy Southern Lebanon temporarily until UN forces/peacekeepers replace them.
This war is going to be extremely devastating. It might even get the Syrians involved. That won't stop Israel, though. I really hope the Lebanese
military doesn't get involved, because this war is not about Lebanon.
I pray and hope for the best, but I know it won't happen...
