Lilly,

Please stop reading Veterans News Network to get your dose of news about Israel.

The likelihood of Israel working with a Muslim terror network is about as likely as you selling Israel bonds.

Then again, if you can provide a reliable source/link (including the bogus Sharon quote), I’ll change my mind.

Also argument of ISIS beheadings made ISIS enemy of US is causally false.

Beheadings happenned AFTER bombings NOT before.

Checking dates is always a good practice before making bold inferences.

Just saying.

“ISIS made the US an instant enemy with their beheadings of Americans and other Westerners.”

Baloney.

Boco Haram committed way more atrocities than ISIS. O’ and don’t forgot Assad.

The US does not go to war over few executions, and as we know from above examples not even something like a genocide. And please don’t recite the mantra of the savagery of the method. US execution methods are quite often more savage than severing heads, especially when the concoction goes hay wire or when the electric setup malfunctions. At least the ISIS beheaders showed efficiency so far, surprisingly with no blood spurting from the apparent beheadings. I can’t tell if that is due to a Photoshop or something else, however. Believe me, the US knows what savagery means first hand.

The US chose to bomb ISIS because the latter threatened US interests in Iraq.

Nevertheless, there is review of strategy going on behind the scenes among top pentagon brass about the legitimacy of the US position vis. a vis. ISIS. The Wise Kingdom wants to finish the wall ASAP. It’s top priority.

Good points Mahmoud. More contributions please, and who knows? You may even get paid. Our ‘boss’ is very generous. (kidding).

QN.
What, exactly, has put claims of responsibility by JaN to rest? Sorry if my post was unclear; IMO, there was collusion.

Nusra has been working with Israel and frankly, would be far more likely to have developed useful intel against an enemy entity than the Israelis can at this point in time. They have been truthful about their very restricted ability to gather their own intel on the ground. The Syrian Druze are another possibility; their Israeli brothers in the IDF are slated to become the “point of the spear” soldiers to be initially mustered against Hezbollah.

I’ll even entertain the notion that there were two separate attacks……..;) One on the Iranians and an earlier one (as claimed by Nusra) on HA.

Mahmoud.

In general, “Israel” does not feel threatened by ISIS. That sanguine assessment is not universal among security types, however. They have formed an alliance with JaN and basically consider the non-Israeli populace along the Golan/Syrian borders as at the very least, living shields.

ISIS made the US an instant enemy with their beheadings of Americans and other Westerners.

Vulcan….

my point was that airpower was not required to take out the vehicles; surface-to-surface missiles of whatever type could also be utilized as well as remotely detonated IEDs.

The Izzies are now refuting the Reuters article source claims that they didn’t know an Iranian general was in the vehicle, singular.

Frankly, the Israelis are really nonplused about this whole business and there are not only broad cynical claims that the killings were yet another aggressive military move staged prior to an election but also real fear that their leadership has recklessly endangered them. In my decade + years of watching the place, I have never seen such
confusion.

They have good reason to be fearful as the shelters /”Iron Domes” in place cannot begin to shield their population from the kind of onslaught they could face.

There are those Israelis who are convinced that “mowing the grass” and the “Dahiya” option by way of massive Israeli airstrikes over a few days will be required. A major originator/proponent of those working theories is one Gadi Eizenkot, formerly of the *Northern Command during the ’06 war and now, just awaiting the call to formally take over his post of Israel’s next Chief of Staff.

*(Eizenkot wanted to send IDF ground forces in at the very beginning of the conflict and was frustrated by higher
ups).

……..the ouija board is too clogged up to read clearly right now but be warned that Israel is deploying military assets to the north.

Just in time for employee performance review.

Appreciate the raise, and also the exemplary performance record kept in meticulous order.

I did say it’s fair play. Didn’t I?

Mahmoud,

Hezbollah is obviously not on the same side as the US and Israel, but shares a common enemy in these radical Islamist groups. They represent enough of a destabilizing force in the region as to warrant a sustained bombing campaign.

Mustap said: “These groups, mostly working through social media, are like pseudo political lobbies working in the US political landscape. Some of them may have access to resources from foreign entities, while others are motivated by their own political affiliations. This site is motivated by the latter.”

Don’t forget to say that you and all the other commenters are paid by my organization to keep up the appearance of an actual forum. I pay by the comment, and you get a raise for your exemplary performance last year, Mustap.

Keep up the good work.

So, what’s General Orange suggesting? Apocalypse Now? Armageddon?

Any new lessons on warfare we need to learn about from General Bonaparte?

Is the General now appointed chief of staff of the secretary?

What Devil are Israelis counting on now to see them through for the next 12 months?
