Israelis are too afraid of HA’s 70>100,000 rockets/missiles/drones/”surprises”. They would be criminally stupid NOT to be concerned. Israelis responsible for Israel’s security have to deal with the what is; political rhetoric only serves to muddy the lens.
In general, the consensus is and has been that neither HA nor Israeli wants war. Does the IAF have enough assets ie men and materiel carry out their attack on Lebanon plans as known? Prolly not, Gaza is using those assets up at a quicker clip than anticipated. A campaign on Lebanon would require a green light & a massive airlift of ordnance, etc from Uncle Freier.
But, context being key, Gaza is not going as planned and requires Israel’s full attention. Taking on battle-hardened Hezbollah right now would probably face resistance from those in charge of implementing war.
Some American Congressmembers might think the IAF should flatten Lebanon, though. They are our national shame.
“Wow. I guess the US weren’nt so impressed by your list of humanitarian assistance organisations.”
The WH would be accused of anti-semitism and unmanliness should we directly support aid $ toward “little snakes”, their mothers and Hamas fighters.
As an American, I have to consider whether or not directing aid Gaza way could be construed as providing succor to terrorists.
