In the illegal 2006 Invasion of Lebanon the IDF (Israel Demolition Forces) couldn't take out the 10,000 strong Hezbollah.
For 34 days they threw everything they had at the ragtag Hezbollah including dropping a million cluster bombs in the South of Lebanon and what did the Israelis get? At best a humiliating stand-off if not an embarrassing defeat. I heard that the new IDF recruits didn't even wear matching socks...
What made the difference were missiles, lots of missiles. Missiles (and the upcoming drones) are leveling the (war) playing field and Iran is supposed to be the supplier of Hezbollah's fire power ergo Iran for Israel has to go.
Iran's nuclear threat is the tool the Israelis are desperately trying to use to move the West to do Israel's dirty work.
As per Israel's nuclear arsenal, the question is where are they going to use it? If against any hostile population that surrounds the Zionist entity in occupied Palestine a serious fallout problem would be created (unless Israel wants to be true to its traditions of Samson and Masada).
How could everyone be so blind to the real intention of the Israelis?
Israel, 5 million delusional people most of whom of recent arrival. Iran, a stable country of 60+ million people who never moved.
Who gave 5 million Jews squatting in Palestine among 160+ million people in the surrounding areas, 5 million Jews living in the USA among 300+ million Americans and another 5 million Jews living somewhere in this 7 billion people Earth such a voice and the right to put the whole world in jeopardy and in play? Could anyone imagine the unmanageable chaos if all the 7 billion people on Earth exerted the same influence and clamor?
Why assume that a Zionist entity in Palestine is in the West's best interest and the Jews have only noble and deserving intentions?
How to solve then an asymmetric conflict especially one with religious overtones?
We have cuckoos who think their holy scripture entitles them to a Promised Land of Milk and Honey so much so to occupy a land which belongs and belonged to other people as well. A larger bunch of cuckoos thinks that their god is great and their prophet gave them a better script good enough to kill for. And then there are those cuckoos who although adopted the Promised Landers' scripture have also the benefit of non-Hebraic Hellenistic Greek Humanism but a splinter group (the Evangelicals) believes that they need the YHWH Chosen People crowd squatting in the Promised Land to achieve a magical rapture.
I don't know which cuckoos are more cuckoos but the Jews have never (as yet) denounced, repudiated, forsworn or recanted their Torah as a plagiarized, self-aggrandizing fabrication. It may have worked centuries ago (before archaeology came on its own) but isn't it time now to put an end to Abrahamic divine revelation religions? Shouldn't the Jews start first?
Humanity has been building temples and doing offerings to "gods" way before the Hebrews came along and there was a Pontifex Maximus in Rome well before the cult of Jesus. Worshiping zombie gods (Jesus, Osiris, Attis, Bacchus, Dionysus, etc...) is very old hat. In these myths though the god was slain by other gods which is impossible to do if only one god is postulated ergo mankind's role in the execution as well as being the beneficiary of this murderous act.
• Before there were the Ten Commandments there were the 42 Negative Affirmations to Ma'at (The Egyptian Book of the Dead).
• Before there was Noah there was Gilgamesh.
• Before there was the Tower of Babel there was the Sumerian story of Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta.
• Before there was Moses there were Hammurabi and Sargon of Akkad.
• Before there was Mary there were Cybele, Gaia, Rhea, all the Earth Mothers, etc...
• Before there was Jesus of Nazareth there were Osiris, Attis, Bacchus, Dionysus, etc...
• Before the cross there was the crux ansata (ankh).
• And the list goes on.
In conclusion: No more Abrahamic divine revelation spun religions, problem solved (most of Asia is already on board and where the world's economic and geopolitical axis is moving to).
