Cease-Fire

All parties have agreed to a cease-fire and Hezbollah, Lebanon,Iran, Syria, Israel, America and the rest of the world have all claimed victory.

So what happens next? Well if history is any indication, we will probably see more of the same. The only real difference we will see is more of a UN presence which means more UN lookout post to hide behind. Don't be fooled, the added UN forces will do nothing to keep the influx of weapons and troops from entering Lebanon through Syria. Remember, the northern Lebanon border is still unprotected. The UN troops being sent will be stationed on the southern border of Lebanon so there is nothing keeping Syria from shipping in more hardware...Unbelievable.

I do understand Israel's hesitancy in moving further north into Lebanon. They fear losing huge numbers of troops. Plus they don't want to bring Syria and Iran into a conventional war without international assistance, if they can help it. But Israel backing off and agreeing to a cease-fire will only give Hezbollah and their supporters more confidence in their objective which is to destroy Israel. I've recently read where Hamas has been taking notice of how well Hezbollah has been conducting their attacks. Just yesterday a reporter was kidnapped in Gaza, a Hamas stronghold.

This cease-fire is nothing more than a pause, it is NOT a victory. Hezbollah and Israel can claim victory all they want. The bottom line is that the fighting is over only temporarily. Both sides will now have time to regroup and assess the damages, then unfortunately the next round begins.

Israel must show resolve in this fight. They have no choice.

Regrettably, I think you are correct Ron. Many of the Hezbos are basically animals with long and vindictive memories. Yes, God loves people, even ignorant ones bent on killing others, but His blessing is not on them. Keep blogging the good stuff. George.

Bubba, you as well as I know that Israel will not have peace until Christ foot touches the Mount of Olives. Their country will continue to have many, many battles until He returns. Even though they are His chosen ones. May we all pray for Israel and the U.S. and hope that this country never turns its back on them. When we do, it will be the downfall of our beloved nation. All the signs point to our time on this "old world" is growing very short. The imminent return of "Christ our Lord" is right around the corner. I hope and pray for all our families and friends that their lives and ours are right with Him and that we all shall meet in the sky one day soon. Keep up the good work Bubba. Stand strong... And GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!

I guess now we'll have to trust the Un-competent Nations to keep terrorists from attacking Israel...

This is a victory for the Hezbos (I like that George...hope you don't mind me borrowing it =)

Israel got nothing it wanted...the soldiers were not returned...NATO troops are not in Lebanon...Hezbos are not disarmed.

Like you said...it is only a pause.

Ron, did u hear Rush today? He ripped Jimmy Carter a new one. Jimmy wants to give away the farm - I think he has a new book out. Rush was livid, beside himself and just out of control.
jimmy had an interview with a magazine, that is what sparked this firestorm on the EIB.

George,
I've read some of Carter's interview and all I can say is thank God he is no longer President. He's a pacifist. His policies did nothing in securing lasting peace to the Middle East.

Ron - you are right on! This war will still be going on to the end of time. We do know Who will have the final victory. Till then there will be hard times ahead, I'm afraid, for all of us.

Carter needs to go back to selling peanuts!

I heard Rush going on about Jimmy Carter today also and was so mad!!! I'm starting to think Carter did more to wreck this country with his idiocy that Clinton did w/his corruption. He thinks Israel had no right to fight back against terrorists. I was yelling at the radio, completely ridiculous.

Mom,
Right as always;)

LMC,
I guess Carter believes that Israel had no right to destroy Iraq's nuclear facilities either.

He was nothing more than a diplomat or ambassador, not a president.

Hi Ron,
Thanks for visiting my site and commenting. I'm in total agreement with you as well. It is amazing though, just how many people do not realize this.

I love your area and have spent quite a bit of time there...my home area is Gulf Shores, Al.
Suzie
BTW, I listened to Rush today too!! (smiling)
