Hezbollah head at victory rally

#1
Hundreds of thousands of people have massed in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, to celebrate what Hezbollah militants call their victory over Israel.
The group's leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, appeared at the rally - his first public appearance since July.

People packed into the city's southern suburbs, which were heavily bombed during the conflict, waving yellow and green flags and chanting slogans.

Hezbollah has called the outcome of the five-week conflict a "divine victory".

Sheikh Nasrallah thanked the crowd for making the journey to the rally.

"Our presence here is not without danger," he told the crowds, in reference to Israel considering him a target during the conflict.

They've already had the international condemnation and world opinion is already against them, why not send a huge ****ing guided bomb right into the middle of that crowd and finish of hezbollah.

Still smarting eh?

When the Israelis assassinated Abbas Musawi, Nasrallah's predecessor, they got an even more astute replacement in return.

They do not want to make that mistake again!

As for world opinion being against Hezbollah, dream on. Hezbollah didnt kill over 1000 civilians.

Dont have the exact figures but approx 160 Israelis of which 107 were soldiers and hence legitimate military targets.

On balance thats a pretty reasonable ratio, certainly compared to the Israelis who killed about 90% civilians

Do you have the figures for that? Remember a Hezbollah fighter can have their weapon removed from them - and they're a civilian. There was footage of bombed villages where the media were shown arms stashes that had been hidden in schools etc. I'm not saying there weren't civilian casualties, as there no doubt were.

In terms of ethics you could say that Israeli laser guided bombs are more ethical and less discriminate than the unguided 3k odd rockets sent over by Hezbollah.

Mark!

Why are you so bloodthirsty? Let's reverse your proposition and we would get something like:

... why not to send a huge airliner right into the middle ...

Sorry, but from my point of view in both cases the logic is the same.
