  •  Russians and Chechens? Excuse me? (5+ / 0-)

    Um, you clearly need a refresher course on the situation in Chechnya.  The Russians have been beyond brutal with those who they consider fellow countrymen.  The Russians destroyed Grozny and have continually bombed and attacked Chechens.  In fact in all the major terrorist standoffs, more Russians have been killed by botched Russian rescue attempts than Chechen terrorists.  Hell, there's even evidence that the 1999 Moscow apartment bombings were done by its own government and not the Chechens.  Clearly the Isreal has not been launching rockets from Lebanon against itself.  Once again, another Isreal attacker gets the facts wrongs.

    I won't get into the other stuff about Hezbollah because it's too annoying.  I never thought I'd ever be one of Isreal's strongest supporters but all this glorification of radical terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, all these lies about Isreal, all these people who feel Isreal should just lie down and accept brutal attacks.  It's unbeleivable.  I have a word to the wise here who all seem to enjoy defending terrorist organizations.  If you throw a punch, don't complain when you're hit back.

      I am aware of Russia's failures in dealing with Chechen rebels in the past. No doubt. Russia has changed it's response and it is their new response that I am applauding. Whether or not you agree with the policy of assasinations I think it is easier to justify than the collective punishment policy of the past (similar to the current Israeli policy).

      Beslan from my perspective was the worst terrorist attack of this century (As horrific as 9/11 was).
      Russia could have easily justified a harsh response but they were measured. If Israel shows that type of respect for human life I assure you I would applaud and support them. I am not anti-Israel but I will not stand by and applaud Israel for bombing cities and civilian infrastructure in response to the capturing of an Israeli soldier

        Why is al Sadr saying in Iraq that he will have his militia attack American troops in Iraq in solidarity with Hizbullah?  What do Hamas, Hizbullah and al Sadr all have in common besides religion?  They all are backed by Iran aren't they?  Someone in Tehran is pulling all their strings and waging  war against Israel and the USA by proxy.  

        As for the bombing in Lebanon.  I wish it didn't have to be this way and that Lebanon had a strong enough military of their own to disband Hizbullah as the government was supposed to do when Israel agreed to leave that country.  It didn't happen.  Hizbullah got stronger.  Sadly, to cut off Hizbullah, Israel has to bomb roads, airports and create a blockade of ships.  The people in Lebanon have been held hostage by Hizbullah and Syria.  It sure wasn't Israel who killed their elected leader.  Syria was behind that act.  

        Winning without Delay.
