Wars and Rumors of Wars

I can recall as a kid watching TV broadcast of embassy bombings, jet highjackings and kidnappings, all over the Middle East. Time and time again I remember seeing Israeli officials go in front of cameras "pleading" with the world for their assistance in reigning in terrorist groups whose main objective was the total destruction of Israel.
Israel has warned the world of the potential escalation of terror organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas for years and the US and other countries have just continually looked the other way believing that this was nothing more than a regional problem. Well 911 proved otherwise.

Up to this point in time, Israel has used incredible restraint in dealing with terrorist groups and terrorist sponsored nations. They have done more than any other country to try to live in peace with their neighbors, including giving up"land". What other country has conceded so much and gain so little in return?

Israel is once again at war. She has reached the point of no return. No more talking, no more conceding, and no more pleading for help. She is taking matters into her own hands as she should be. America should back Israel and be ready to help out when called upon.

"When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away." Luke 21:9

Time and again Israel has bent over backwards and made difficult concessions in the name of peace. Each and every time, the Islamists have taken that as a sign of weakness and an invitation to attack.

Israel lived up to it's obligations under a UN Security Council resolution to leave their security zone in Lebanon six years ago and Hezbollah moved right in, which was a direct violation of the UN resolution.

The heart of this problem in both Gaza and Lebanon leads directly to Iran. And Israel is showing remarkable restraint. If I were in charge of the Israel Defense Force both Damascus and Teheran would be in flames by now.

Let's not forget that this is the same Hezbollah that bombed our Marine Barracks and killed 241 of our Marines. It's the same Hezbollah which kicked poor Robert Steatham, a Navy Diver, to death on TWA Flight 847 in 1985 and held the rest of the passengers hostage.

The list of their crimes against humanity goes on and on...

Not only should Israel finish the job, but we also should be helping.

LMC,MIKE

I agree that we should be involved in some form or fashion even if only to keep Russia and China at bay.

I believe America's presence may be keeping those two from invading.

We need to face the fact that we are at war. The center of all hostilities is Iran we need to stop waiting and Join with Israel and start by bombing both Syria and Iran...

City Troll,

These terrorist groups and countries believe that America, Israel, and her allies simply do not have the stomach or resolve for an all out war. Thanks in part of U.N. leadership, I can see why they would think that.

I believe that WWIII started on 911.

Sorry for not hooking up with you and Carole. I had a long day, got home, and crashed. That's no excuse though.
