So what you're telling me is that, basically, even though Hezbollah have scud missiles and targeted missiles and it targeted civilians but for some unknown reason, it couldn't hit anyone ?
You do realize military targets are not just troops and tanks right ? There are things called logistic lines which needs to be destroyed when at war.
And Hezbollah almost exclusively targeted those inside of Israel.
Specially true considering that Tel Aviv and other major cities were in range of its missiles and before Israel had a missile defense system.
And i lived through the war too, i knew first hand what Hezbollah was targeting and what were they trying to accomplish because my own family helped with the weapons.
Israel is not doing the same thing if you had a little bit of brain combined with logic you would understand but I think arguing with someone who says that Iran is a democracy is pretty much a waste of time
Then do try to explain, because you always seem to avoid any argument with some dumbass excuse when ever i bring up this point.
How exactly is what Israel is doing any different other than being 100s of times bigger and more deadly than that of which Hamas does ?
Israel kills 2000 in an operation. Hamas kills 2 civilians in an operation.
Israel obliterates entire cities' infrastructures. Hamas tries to attack infrastructure.
The only difference between Hamas and Israel is that Israel is a much more efficient criminal. And not because of its own superiority. No, because it has a whole lot of idiots to foot the bill for weapons across Europe and north America.
Even if we want to take terrorism by definition.
"the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims."
Shall we go through your leaders' statements to see those political reasons behind those massacres your forces committed ? Because there are plenty of those.
Ooh and i see you just skipped the little points about Iraq and Yemen and the acclaimed "terrorism" in them. What ? You came to realization that the actual terrorists are the ones fighting on your side and supported by you and your allies ?
Maybe we can talk about the "freedom fighters" in Afghanistan and how according to you and other Israelis and pro-Israel members here, supported by Iran. Not the US, no no god forbid, Iran is the one supporting those two.
But please. Don't mind those uncomforting facts. Go ahead and tell us how you're always the victim. And how you're living in terror everyday from those evil MUSLIMS around you.
Lol the pipeline nonsense.
You mean this nonsense; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qatar%E2% ... y_pipeline
Which was rejected so this one could be built https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran-Iraq-Syria_pipeline
And the "revolution" just started right after the Iran pipeline was established ?
I'm not singling out the Syrian conflict in particular. By removing Saddam Bush handed over Iraq to Iran thus creating an imbalance in the region.
And ? You mean that Iraq should remain under the control of the minority Sunni population and the persecution and ethnic cleansing of the Shia majority in the country should continue just so we can maintain "balance" in the region ?
Iraq was already well in alliance with Iran far before Saddam ever came along. Not official alliance but what i mean is that between the people.
Go to south of Iraq now and half of them speak Persian because they're an extention of the Iranian Arabs. And thats a large portion of the population.
Most of the country's Shias are Shias because of the Safavid empire. And even the Kurds in Iraq already had good relations with Iran before Saddam came along. Which is why they took the side of Iran in the war and thus Saddams attacks on them. They're long term allies.
Saddam is the one who ruined the actual balance when he took control by force with support of the gulf states and the US, and began persecuting the local population which led to all the following retaliations after the collapse of his regime.
The only part which Iran did play in the formation of ISIS is that during the Iraqi civil war, multiple groups in Iran sent death squads to retaliate against former Baath leaders and supporting communities that did crimes against their people in Iran.
But even with that, the only group that formed was the Islamic state in Iraq holding the last remaining fighting force of the Baath party and it was about to be killed off sooner than latter. It managed to grow stronger and spread and turn into ISIS when it mixed with the Syrian "rebels" mainly groups the deserted Al-qaeda ranks in Syria (Al-nusra front), also others from the Islamic front and the FSA.
Ofcourse taking with them all the weapons that the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, etc sent them to ISIS. And those weapons supports are public not some conspiracy theory. Check the news history.
So without all those countries boosting up the Islamists, none of what goes on today would be happening. And the Syrian war started as a coup by the way. A coup that was supported and funded by Turkey and Saudi Arabia with the leaders of this coup holding their meetings in Turkey. Thats the FSA if you're wondering. The Islamists support came after this failed.
