Reports of Possible Major Attack On Israel From Lebanon

Reports of Possible Major Attack On Israel From Lebanon

This would make it a two-front war.

Reports of a possible Hezbollah attack on Israel from Lebanon have flooded social media and the news. This means the war could be on two fronts:

Incoming drone alerts are continuing to sound in northern Israel.

The sirens are sounding in every town and city in the north, including the Golan Heights.

Early reports suggest dozens of drones were launched from Lebanon at Israel.

The military says it is looking into the details.

The head of the Galil Elyon Regional Council, Giora Zaltz, tells Channel 12 news some of the aircraft that infiltrated from Lebanon are carrying people, and residents need to seek shelter.

“This is what we feared, what we were preparing for,” he says.

Footage on Channel 12 news appears to show a drone moving across the sky.

IDF says residents of towns in northern Israel where the aircraft infiltration alerts sounded must remain in shelters until further notice.

Sirens sound in the towns of Ofer and Kerem Maharal, south of Haifa, with Hamas claiming to have shot rockets in that area.

My grandfather taught at the American University in Beirut, when it was known as the “Paris of the Middle East”, and my mother lived there until near age 10. What has the world come to, when I can contemplate Israel possibly having to use tactical nuclear weapons to defend itself from these barbarians?

    241 US Marines, sailors and soldiers were killed while participating in a peacekeeping operation in Beirut by a Hezbollah suicide bomber. 23 October 1983,

    The world came to this long ago, they just ignored it.

    This is the result of political solutions to real world problems. This is why the USA is $33T in debt. This is why we have an open southern border. This is why America has begun to run out of electricity in very cold or hot weather. This is why Germany (and others in Europe) are telling people to set their house temp to 50 this winter. Etc. The solution, of course, is to elect politicians who will solve problems, not kick them down the road. I do not foresee that happening anytime soon.

      I really don’t want politicians trying to solve problems. Almost without exception they make things worse.

      Even simple stuff – fixing roads, delivering mail, arresting criminals – seems beyond the ability of politicians wackily obsessed with “making the world a better place” (truly the most horrible phrase in history, and the source of untold death, misery and pain).

Attacks from Lebanon and Syria, is this the end of Israel, or the beginning of WWIII?

    We just sent the USS Gerald Ford. But it was just for appearance’ sake.

    Biden said, “I have one word for you, ‘Don’t.'”

    Lebanon and Syria said, “We have two words for you, ‘Ha, Ha.'”

      I have to note that the USS GERALD FORD [CVN-78] when last heard from [she is new] is a cross-threaded, left-handed, football bat. Instead of steam catapults to launch planes, she has EMALs [Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launchers]. Good in theory but steam catapults are good for about 3000 launches before needing maintenance and the EMALs are running 200 and change. Aboard there are elevators to get munitions from the magazine to the planes to be loaded. These are a new high speed type, and they break down frequently, In the first couple of times they tried to get her into operation I understand that she had problems with both watertight integrity and propulsion, She is way late and over cost.

      It did not used to be like that. Long ago when the world was new [1980’s] I had the privilege to be an invited guest aboard the USS YORKTOWN [CG-48] at the then Ingalls Pascagoula Shipyard; the second of the then brand new AEGIS missile cruisers, She had just finished her shakedown cruise where they test everything and bring it back to the shipyard to have anything done wrong fixed. This is called “post-shakedown yard availability, And it can last for months. One unusual problem.

      I was told by everyone from the Captain on down that EVERY SINGLE THING WORKED PERFECTLY. The problem was that they had planned for some months of down time that it turned out they did not need and had scheduled the supplies for actual deployment for some time later. They had to find supplies in a hurry so she could deploy.

      We used to build ships and systems [and have command structures] we could depend on. CVN-78 makes me nervous until she proves herself functional.

    Enough of the hyperventilating 🙄 Unless Hezbollocks has nukes from Iran it’s not going to be the end of anything (other than themselves if they are stupid enough to do some seriously stupid stuff – but let’s not put that past them just yet!).

The reports made by several accounts roughly an hour ago that the United States has ordered the evacuation of its Embassy in the Lebanon capital of Beirut has not been confirmed.

This is all very predictable. This will ultimately be a 4-front war — Gaza, Lebanon, Syria (Golan Heights), and West Bank. Does Israel have enough manpower (and womanpower) and munitions to fight a 4-front war?

EMP’s over both belligerents. Fry their electronics.

The only good thing about this war is it sharpens the contradictions inside the Democratic Party – The vast majority of the most loyal Dem voters support the Palestinians, but their biggest donors are mostly on Israel’s side. If Biden is not the nominee (or even if he is), RFK Jr. and the Dem Nominee could be on opposite sides in 2024.

The Israelis will not use nukes on their own territory. They will most likely only contemplate nukes if Iran takes a hand in this fight. Now FAE’s over Lebanon and Syria…different animal all together. Notice how China and Russia want no part of this. Oh and it’s been reported that the nazis in Ukraine have been selling weapons to Hamas through Iran. Just another reason to cut them loose and let the Russians handle it. FJB

    Ukraine is not selling weapons to Hamas. My Gawd, I know your love for Putin evinces loss of higher brain functions, but use some common sense. Ukraine is in an existential war. They lose, they die. They need every weapon they can get. When you are using cardboard drones, you have no weapons to sell.

    Any American weapons in the hands of Hamas or Hezbo’allah came from the Taliban, thanks to Xiao Bai Den. Get a grip.

      True, as far as it goes, but Ukraine is not one single monolithic structure. It is made up of millions of people, some of whom have been skimming weapons headed into the country, and Iran has lots of loose untraceable US currency. I’m positive that US weapons left in Afghanistan have been sold/given to the terrorists in the Middle East, and would not be shocked in the least to find a few serial numbers of Ukraine sales that wandered into their hands either. It would probably help if the current administration were to stop giving away our weapons to people who hate us.

Biden is not up to handling this.

    Actually, I think from Biden’s perspective, the situation is handling itself just fine …

      ChrisPeters in reply to The Packetman. | October 11, 2023 at 7:42 pm

      Sad, but likely true. This administration is having a love fest with Iran, a continuation of the Obama administration’s, and it has continued with the hatred for Israel as well.

Sundowner I bet doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Israel, they are calling Lids daily by 11:30am for him.
And most personal in the administration are hard core Leftists and not for Israel.

Well, if you’re going to gang up and attack Israel, choosing a time when the USA has no president was a masterpiece of strategy.

    ChrisPeters in reply to henrybowman. | October 11, 2023 at 7:43 pm

    We have a president in the Oval Office, but we don’t have a patriot.

      I think what henrybowman means is, we have a puppet in the White House, not a President (and certainly not a patriot).

      Clint Eastwood’s “empty chair” sketch from 2012 suddenly looks disturbingly prescient.
