US Tells Lebanon: Israel Can Destroy Your Entire Army in 4 hrs.

by Jason Ditz and General Joe Sunday, Aug. 29, 2010 at 3:20 PM

"I imagine that when S300 surface to air missiles start tagging those F16’s new thoughts will alight in long calcified minds. France has every right to supply Lebanon with those weapons. Given Israel’s proven imperialist nature the “real international community” will demand it."



US Tells Lebanon: Israel Can Destroy Your Entire Army and All Bases in Four Hours

US Warns France Against 'Irresponsible' Arms Sales to Lebanon

by Jason Ditz, August 27, 2010

How ill-equipt is the Lebanese Army for the oft-threatened Israeli invasion of Lebanon? According to reports one recent US official warned Lebanon’s Army Commander that Israel’s current contingency plan would include annihilating their entire military, every single army base and all of their offices within the first four hours of a war.

Lebanon’s military is still in the early stages of a modernization effort started by the US, but after the US halted all their aid to punish them for a border clash with Israel, the nation is looking to other potential partners like Iran and France to fill the gap.

And even though France’s proposed sale of some anti-tank missiles to Lebanon is unlikely to pose a serious threat to Israel’s “annihilation” strategy Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R – FL) angrily condemned France today, warning them it was “very irresponsible” to arm the Lebanese government, which of course the US was doing itself just three weeks ago.

During the last Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006, the Lebanese military was little more than a spectator, spending the entirety of the conflict on base, though some 46 Lebanese soldiers were killed in Israeli air strikes.

-----

Why is it that Israel believes it’s militarist, expansionist, unfair and hated policies will be tolerated forever? Do they really think of themselves as the “chosen ones?” I imagine that when S300 surface to air missiles start tagging those F16’s new thoughts will alight in long calcified minds. France has every right to supply Lebanon with those weapons. Given Israel’s proven imperialist nature the “real international community” will demand it. Please share widely. General Joe
