I thought that they were non-combatants.

More like "complicity" of points of view.

No wonder Israel considers hezbollah's Al-manar TV to be a legitimate target. And yet CNN quotes them! The propaganda arm of a terrorist organization. As if they're a reliable source of information. Well that's what passes for objectiveity at CNN. (Remember the incident with CNN during the first gulf war where they agreed to suppress information they had that was damaging to the Iraqi regime so that they could maintain their foreign office there?)

And Hezbollah has some Fajr 3 and 5 missles several of which they have already used.

What's next? Hezbollah armed with tactical nuclear weapons supplied by Iran?

This crises, if it results in the disarming of hezbollah and a decrease in Iranian influence, notwithstanding the terrible civilian toll, may turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
Where did you get or know information that Iran has or can supply tactical nuclear weapons?
There is no blessing in disguise by Killing Lebanese. Let's not sugar coat this!

Do you believe that iran is seeking nuclear weapons? Or do you buy their explanation that one of the most oil rich countries of the world is in short supply of energy? Brooklyn.....Bridge......Sale.

What I was saying is that if this confrontation had been delayed for several years it is quite possible that Iran would have transferred nuclear technology to Hezbollah. They have transferred silkworm missles to Hezbollah. No? Amadinijad says Israel should be extinguished from the face of the earth.

I take him at his word.

They lost 18 men in a week in hezbollah's own territory where they were dug in. I would hardly call that "exterminated". Israel has committed only very light troops to the ground offensive. My hope is that they go in in force and clean up that cesspool but I'm not betting that will happen.

By the way Bint Jbail has been flattened. News reports today during the suspension of the air offensive while civilians were being evacuated suggest that Hezbollah lost that particular battle.
Then what do you call Israelis who have killed more than 750 civilians ? You are right terrorists is no longer an appropriate word to describe their acts .
And you will be lying to yourself if yo consider this large number of death as incidental victims .

18 men what you know about , come on you shouldn't beleive the blind media if you really seek to know the truth .

The truth is that 40 of the G51 division of the gollany platoon has been exterminated , and most of them shot while they were fleeing .

Olmert has ealrier declared that he has took over Maroun el Rass and Bint Jbeil and exterminated Hizbollah there but againt who beleives him if Israelies beleive Hassan Nasrallah words more than their government .

Flattening Bint Jbeil doesn't mean winning a battle , with the weapons they have and the Bombs delivered from USA ( which by the way you taxe payers are paying the bill for that ) it is easy to flatten bint jbeil but the fact remains that the Israeli army was forced to evacuate DESPITE THE DIFFERENCE IN FORCE BALANCE .


How about the barge that was destroyed yesterday , 5 more tans and 2 armored buldozers ?????????? have they been broadcasted on your media ?

80% of hizbollah's attacks results in Israeli military losses in equipements and soldiers .

While 99% of Israel's attacks resulted in civilian innocent lives , civilian structures , infrastructure ,,,,

which only shows the weackness of the Isareli army hiding behind their advanced weapons , that have been used against what they were claimed to be used for .

It doesn't surprise me their attacks on civilians in revenge of their millitary failure against Hizbollah's fighters and that's terror and justifying that terror makes the world guilty .

Well it looks to me like Hezbollah is winning then. Never mind that reporters were walking around freely in Bint Jbail today with no signs of life. Israel left because their goal was not to hold on to the town but to inflict damage to hezbollah.

They have moved on to the next killing field.....

Of course, that's about as far misused a phrase as one will ever find, considering the original context and the spirit of the passage, but dopey semi-Christians who have never critically read the Bible see this as a prescription for justice.
That's in torate , Jesus christ came to change the old Jewish thinking .

When you read the bible read it well please .

Oh and are you aware that in the 1982 offensive Israel lost 100 troops in the assault on Bint Jbail?

Looks like they're getting better to me.
