Whooee! Well friends an' foes, here I go again pastin' a comment I made on sumbuddy's boog inta my own little boog. Over t' BigCityLib Strikes Back the BigCityFeller is boogin' on the troublems with the IDF's strategy. The BCL writer's wond'rin' if mebbe the IDF's got it's head up its ass or mebbe it's bein' led by polyticians who ain't got a clue 'bout winnin' wars.
I reckon the IDF's biggest troublem is that they brought a shotgun to a knife fight... an' they ain't exactly Annie Oakley in the marksmanship department. Now that they finally seen their bombs don't stop rocket-tossers an' only make more innocent victims sympathize with the rotten hezballers, they're sendin' in the foot soldiers.
This ain't the part that's flawed. This is the way they can engage the bad guys an' fight 'em. The ground forces has been doin' a whole helluvalot better'n the bombers when it comes t' civilian:hezballer kill ratio.
They woulda liked it if they coulda bombed the crap outta innocent Lebanese an' got most o' the hezballers while they was at it. Ever since they pulled out in 2000, the IDF's had south Leb under near constant aerial surveillance. They shoulda knowed they wasn't gonna win by bombin' babies. But, dang it all, they figgered it was worth a try... and who's gonna give a rat's ass if a few hunnert human shields die in the dumbass experiment?
I been sayin' since the start, these people gettin' killed is human bein's.
Yesterday in a letter t' the editor o' my local rag, sum shitferbrains was callin' on Israel t' level south Leb t' the ground an' kill all the "rodents" livin' there.
The Hezballers's been buildin' schools an' teachin' their kiddies that the Israelis is a buncha baby eaters.
Both sides got an easier time killin' civilians when they figger they ain't quite human.
I been doin' a lot o' readin' in Ha'aretz. There's a growin' buncha Israelis who's askin' why their bigass, well-oiled, Merkin-financed mighty military machine ain't put a dent in the number o' rockets comin' in. Shee-it! Up until the IDF started in with its measured response on July 12, there was hardly any rockets comin' in. Now, they got hunnerts a day.
Israelis is also askin' 'bout the motivation fer this here war.
Sum Israelis an' sum other pundidiots sez it's the Merkins pullin' the strings in Israel an' the Iranians pullin' the hezballers' strings -- a proxy war between the Merkins an ' Iran bein' fought at the expense o' Lebanon.
Well, no great loss fer Cheney an' his buds. Halliburton'll be first in line when the rebuildin' contracts get let out. This war's good business fer the Merkins. They sell bombs t'Israel; then, they give aid t' Lebanon t' help rebuild an' jest like in Iraq, it'll be Merkin pockets gettin' lined when that there rebuildin' starts up.
