i was speaking today with our company accountant's wife who said their son, a career military man (major) in the army, and he has just been deployed for the fourth time to iraq. he's infantry.

he told her the most disappointing part of this war has not been the war itself, but our media's lack of reporting ALL the good things that are going on there. the schools, the hospitals that have reopened, the women in the workplace and a multitude of other wonderful events. he says it drags the military down.

Utter crap, let's review the recent casualties in Israeli as it has engaged in two major military operations.

Gaza: Hamas is firing homemade missiles. has been for nearly two decades and they may have even been able to cause a handful of casualties in that time. That certainly threatens the existence of the state of Israel. All Israeli retaliation has been precision with no Israeli soldiers ever taking a few freebee's (right).

Lebanon: Two israeli soldiers were kidnapped. Stupid, but it was a military target. israel starts bombing and Hamas takes its best shot. Israel suffers about two dozen civilian casualties. Let's put that in perspective...that's lunch hour any day in Baghdad or a good global warming heat wave in California, St. Louis or Chicago.

So the cries of the destruction of Israel go forth and what is important is that by framing it this way it allows Israel to do anything it wants. It will probably screw up big time like the last attempt. So asking them to stand down would be doing them a favor.

Well we have shut down all communication with Syria and Iran, Iraq is a failed state where we control nothing outside the Green Zone, Afghanistan is roughly what it was before we attacked with Taliban controlling the south and iran controlling the west.

So I would suggest that when Fried Rice and the rest of these dopes who think this is an Avalon Hill board game start talking about a "new Middle East" it is best to remember that it ain't gonna be the one we want.

Pithy cartoons or no...he's screwing up again.

ARRGGGHHHH! What does it take for the moonbats to figure out that Hezbollah started this? Also, Hexbolla is hiding behind Lebonese civilians, not letting them leave because they are using them as a shield, but why not? After all, they have no problem hiding behind their own women and children!

Do I detect some anti-semitism here in Mr. ducky's comment? I believe I do.

That cartoon is right on target, AOW. It's got Hezbollah figured exactly!

I'm sorry gayle, did I imply that the IDF doesn't crap chocolate ice cream and pee perfume? How anti semitic of me. Get a new tactic. The anti-semitic line doesn't work outside the fundie circles.

Meanwhile they are using cluster ordnance in populated areas. That completel belies the idiotic cartoon.

So true. I love it.

 
At 7/25/2006 1:28 PM, Blogger G_in_AL said...

You know, from a completely abstract point of view though, We should understand why this is true. Israel has more manpower, more weapons, better armorment, and better training. In fact, they outclass the Palestinians (and Hezbollah) in ever way.

Whomever is leading the military forces for those groups wouldn't be worth his weight in salt if he didnt use the only advantage his troops have over their enemy. The West's taboo over civilian casualties is the only weakness that there is for these guys to exploit, and from a strictly military point of view, to use this is a very intelligent strategy that at least affords them a measure of opportunity they'd otherwise not have.

That doesnt mean I condone it, but again, if you were out match in ever sense of the word, but still felt you needed to achieve a victory, you use anything at your disposal for a possible advantage. Sun Tzu would be very proud.

 
At 7/25/2006 1:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

g,

I think Sun Tzu would whack these idiots BIG TIME for missing so badly on their intelligence. They completely misjudged what the Israeli and the US response would be. They also missed on the reactions by the rest of the Arab world and the EU also.

Yes, they are using some of Sun Tzu's principles of Assymetric warfare, but, they certainly aren't masters.

Of course, what actually happens in Lebanon is just a prep for Iran's actions later, so, I could also be wrong.

 
At 7/25/2006 2:01 PM, Blogger Old Soldier said...

Ducky, your anti-Semitism is verified by your lack of outrage over the thousands of missiles, rockets and homicide bomber attacks launch on Israel by Hezbollah and Hamas. You have no comment about Hezbollah’s charter including the goal of annihilating Israel, yet let Israel become fed up with the incessant attacks and defend itself, and you’re all over the fact that they have used cluster ordinance (was that verified?) in populated areas and intentionally exclude the fact that Israel did issue a two-day advanced warning regarding their intent to destroy certain targets.

You might want to peddle your tripe to a more sympathetic audience.

Indeed, Ducky is a strong hater of Israel. Only one so blinded by his own views would even suggest that Hezbullah is lobbing "home-made" rockets. Then again, if Ducky considers Syria and Iran "home," that statement suddenly appears rather accurate, doesn't it?

 
At 7/25/2006 3:06 PM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

ogre, I said that Hamas is lobbing homemade rockets, and in fact they haven't generated casualties for years.

 
At 7/25/2006 3:13 PM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

old soldier, shut up. Don't play the anti-semitism card.

Also your selective outrage is instructive. As i said, the casualties caused by Hezbollah's rockets have been nothing more than the average lunch hour in Baghdad.

Now we know that in the Middle East you consider jewish life to be the only life of value so please take your selective outrage and stuff it where the sun can't find it.

The BBC is reporting the use of cluster ordance in civilian locations. I know the Worldnet and Frontpage haven't carried the accounts but try some other news sources just for variety.

There are also accounts of people leaving after leafleting and being hit by aircraft missiles. Of course these are just regrettable errors. The IDF has never been out of line .... just as the 101st Airborne is clean in Iraq, right Old Soldier? You really are a dinosaur.

Ducky,

Would you like to add another vapid paragraph, or do you feel you've adequately represented the idiot view?

Here's a picture of the "military" targeting your Hezbollah boyfriends are doing with their random tossing of missiles at Israel's civilian residential areas.

The contrast is clear. Hezbollah is deliberately firing missiles packed with fragmentation warheads at civilian homes in Israel, while Israel is using precision guided munitions upon carefully selected targets.

Israel is just trying to kill Hezbollah.

Hezbollah is just trying to kill Jews.

nanc, tell us again about the "women in the workplace" in Iraq. It sounds as if your friend thought Iraqi women wore the burqa.

Not to put to fine a point on it but womens rights have decreased since the invasion and this constnt drone about the schools as if there were no schools in iraq before the invasion is silly.

Also Iraq had a good medical system. Due to the invasion a huge number of medical professionals have left (would you stay in that hellhole if you had a high paying job elsewhere) and the system is badly strained.

Your friend seems to be talking nothing but cliches, not facts.

 
At 7/25/2006 5:25 PM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

Yes Beamish, whatever you say. Israeli has bombed southern Beirut so that some blocks look like the 9-12 WTC. Of course they used precision munitions so they only hit "suspected terrorists" in a densely populated urban area.

Please bore me later. Both sides are pigs. There is no possible resolution. If AOW or any of the other professed "Christians" had any faith in them they would ask both sides to sit down and take stock of the damn hatred that's poisened them. We tell Hezbollah they're out, we tell Netanyahu to take a dixie and try to rebuild something with sane people.

 
At 7/25/2006 5:57 PM, Blogger Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Ducky,

What hatred are you refering to on the Israeli side? Israel certainly has the firepower to pulverize every structure in Lebanon at will, and under the circumstances of having their civilians specifically attacked and terrorized by missile strikes on residential areas, have shown remarkable, nay, unearthly restraint in their response as compared to what France would do in similar circumstances. Or Russia. Or the United States.

But Hezbollah is just firing away at Israeli residential areas without regard to the war crimes they are commiting with their "targeting" nor regard for the war crimes they are commiting by launching them from civilian areas in southern Lebanon. And make no mistake, the Geneva Conventions are quite clear about the war crimes of Hezbollah, as well as the culpability of Hezbollah for any "civilian" casualties incurred among those that Hezbollah is illegally hiding among.

But you would try to work a compromise out between those attempting to protect their citizens from war criminals and war criminals who merely want to kill people.

So, play negotiator, Ducky. How many Jews should Hezbollah be allowed to kill? How many Iranian missiles should Hezbollah be allowed to keep?

If it were even concievably possible for a leftist to form a coherent argument for Israel to allow terrorists to shell its people without response, do tell me what said argument would sound like.

Otherwise, fuck off, Nazi.

”old soldier, shut up. Don't play the anti-semitism card.”

Insolence now, too. You really are threatened by someone who was willing to defend his beliefs with his life. I guess I should feel sorry for you, but your insolence prevents it. I’m not playing any cards; I’m merely examining the evidence – your anti-Semitic comments. They speak volumes.

”Also your selective outrage is instructive. As i said, the casualties caused by Hezbollah's rockets have been nothing more than the average lunch hour in Baghdad.”

Well, I’m glad you’re receiving some instruction. Now, if it would just take hold… Since July 1st, 25 Israeli civilians have been killed by Hezbollah rockets and another 205 injured. My source. Perhaps you think Israel should just accept that as a way of life, but few reasonable people agree with you.

”Now we know that in the Middle East you consider jewish life to be the only life of value so please take your selective outrage and stuff it where the sun can't find it.”

Stuffing something where the Sun can’t find it may be your forte, but it does not appeal to me, thanks.

”The BBC is reporting the use of cluster ordance in civilian locations. I know the Worldnet and Frontpage haven't carried the accounts but try some other news sources just for variety.”

The BBC, Ducky? Really… the same BBC that brought us the splash about the US using chemical weapons at Fallujah? That BBC? Come on, Ducky, I thought you smarter than that.

There are also accounts of people leaving after leafleting and being hit by aircraft missiles. Of course these are just regrettable errors. The IDF has never been out of line ....”

Kinda like the regrettable errors made by the Palestinian homicide bombers? Oh, that’s right; the Palestinians are actually targeting civilians, aren’t they? So, which ‘perfect’ war is it that you favor?

”…just as the 101st Airborne is clean in Iraq, right Old Soldier? You really are a dinosaur.”

Nice try at goading, Duck, but the 101st does not need my defense. The difference between us, Duck, is that I condemn criminal actions perpetrated by soldiers; but I don’t condemn all 15,000 soldiers in a division for the actions of four or five. The military has a justice system for those who commit crimes whether on the battlefield or in garrison… and no one is executed until after a trial.

As for my being a dinosaur; your kind is closer to extinction than am I; so graze while you’re able.

You straight out claim that this was a military operation. You are such a MORON that you discard the issue that there are no set RULES that say how BIG a response is allowed to be based on military aggression.

The modern appeasers and Commies have been trying to get STANDARDS set but there is NOTHING in writing that ANYONE has signed onto declaring that, well if they take two of our guys while killing 6 we can blow up 2 of their tanks or take out a missile storage complex or...

You MORON, once a MILITARY Action is launched they can reduce the entire COUNTRY and I hope they damn well DO!!!

I also hope Syria is stupid enough to MILITARILY hit Israel giving them the excuse to REDUCE SYRIA ALSO!!!!

AoW- I don't know, the back is a marvel of design and engineering, but the balance is very precise. Any injury will have it's effects, maybe later down the road, but they do show up! I had an attack of sciatica when I was 26, when I was 36 I had my daughter by c-section, I also had my tubes tied, so they gave me an epidural. Brother, did I get chewed out by the anathesiologist for not telling him of the attack of sciatica! Why? Because it left scar tissue that blocked the effects of the epidural on my tubes! I was feeling every tug and snip, they had to use a general to finish! The point is, it doesn't matter WHEN the injury occurred, it will affect you, sooner or later! The effects may have been delayed, but they would show up!

Shortly after the accident, my family attorney told me, "Don't even think about settling for at least a year." I'm so glad that I took his advice! I was thinking about settling in late April; then, on May 5, major "relapse." By the time I finally got the HMO referral to and appointment with the orthopedist, I almost needed a wheelchair! In fact, the ortho's first words when he laid eyes on me were "My God! Something has to be done!" I burst into tears because, at long last, a doctor recognized the suffering I was going through. I think that it was the combination of my position on the examination table and the dark circles under my eyes which had tipped him off.

But God is good. I managed to finish the school year before the worst of the problems reached the critical limit.

As I read the comments I couldn't help remembering Sept. 11, 2001. While I was in the process of accepting that a big hole in the ground had taken the place of two large buildings, I was treated to something else.

Thousands of Palestinians dancing in the streets, tossing candy to passers-by; reveling in the death and destruction in New York. It was, to me, a very revealing picture of what Israel lives with every day. Since that day my sympathies have been with Israel, whatever their faults and mistakes.

To me, this current 'victims' of Israeli 'aggression' were throwing candy 5 years ago. Celebrating the deaths of Americans.

Why not change the Hezbollah figure in the cartoon to a U.N. observation post.

OR put the U.N. post alongside the baby carriage.

Duck, that is a UN observation post.

 
At 7/26/2006 10:22 AM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

AOW, the post has been there for years, it is well mapped and the israeli air force has been asked not to hit U.N. locations. They have and there is every reason to believe it is intentional (I believe Israel wants to limit the number of witnesses).

Now you beg the question that there was in fact a Hezbollah asset near the tower. I can gather from the general tone of the board that an muslim Lebonese is Hezbollah but that is your bias to deal with. What was the Hezbollah asset near the observation site?

Duck,
I know that the U.N. observation post has been there for years. All the more reason for them to report on the activities of Hezbollah, particularly if Hezbollah had a hide-out there.

We'll learn soon enough whether or not a Hezbollah outpost was nearby.

Believe the worst about Israel if you like. I won't change your opinion on that matter.

I don't believe that every Lebanese civilian is a participant in the doings of Hezbollah. But we all know that Hezbollah, using Iranian funding, provides various services (food, shelter, etc.) to the Lebanese, so many of the Lebanese are very sympathetic toward Hezbollah, if not outright supporters; this accounts for their voting in Hezbollah to the parliament--voting entitlements, so to speak; this also accounts for why the government of Lebanon doesn't purge Hezbollah from the borders of the country. And, in a recent poll, the vast majority of Lebanese Muslims supported the removal of the nation of Israel; there we see is another motivation for Lebanese civilians to harbor Hezbollah.

Mr. Beamish,
Speaking of war crimes, how is Hezbollah treating its captured Israeli POWs? Anyone from the International Red Cross been able to visit them and monitor their conditions?

No to that last one, as far as I know.

 
At 7/26/2006 1:01 PM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

Well, here's my prediction, AOW. It seems to be shaping up.

1. Israel should have known that air power wouldn't be sufficient to deal with Hezbollah.

2. Israel is casualty averse which makes the ground war difficult. They also can't afford a ground war (I imagine we'll try to finance this fiasco along with the other).

3. Hezbollah has a very good chance to win since all they have to do is survive. Inflict some casualties and survive.

4. The rest of the world has seen the Iraq fiasco and the first Israeli Lebanese occupation and will not give ground force assistance.

5. Israel's withdrawal will lead to escalation.

Not much of a prospect.

I know this is hard for you. Your hatred of Bush and Republicans in general has clouded your reasoning. You are trying to compare the actions of a military with declared military actions with those of persons that kidnap and behead people. I do not want to go too far in justifying the actions of Israel but Israel has been very cooperative in recent years even giving up land and retreating. Their reward is rockets and a jointly coordinated attack from both Hamas ans Hezbollah. Meanwhile Islamic terrorism is on the rise in Indonesia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan etc. Put down your bais for just a minute and look and think. We are in a worldwide battle and we all had better snap out of this bickering nonsense.

Duck,
I won't argue with your predictions; I don't have a crystal ball. But I submit that the escalation you would have happened (and has already happened) anyway had Israel continued to allow Hezbollah and Hamas to work their mayhem.

I agree with Storm:

Islamic terrorism is on the rise in Indonesia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan etc....We are in a worldwide battle and we all had better snap out of this bickering nonsense.

That escalation which Storm just mentioned preceded Israel's latest actions. Check the calendar.

Like storms I drift away for awhile working on little projects.

I just finished working on what Ducky will no doubt call a racism festival.

I was at the Civil War reenactment of the Battle of 1st Bull Run
(held in Middletown VA). It was a great event. The site is huge and well maintained. I must have expended over a hundred rounds. The weather was pleasant and mostly mild despite the little ducky predictions of global warming (it was cooler this year than 5 years ago).

There is nothing like living in a tent for a few days and having to wait for water to boil that makes you appreciate Starbucks and a bed

Storm,
You were at Middletown? My in-laws occasionally journey from California to Virginia to participate in the Bull Run re-enactment! The last time they participated in the Bull Run re-enactment was when it was held in Leesburg, VA. They didn't come this year, however, because they'll be visiting in September for a family wedding in upstate NY. My mother-in-law is 86 and has Alzheimer's, so these trips aren't easy for her, nor are her visits easy for us when she starts her sundowning forays all over the house.

One year quite a while ago, they came here for the Gettysburg re-enactment, and we drove up to PA to a farm where the event was being held. My husband and I attended, all decked out in costume. My mother-in-law used to be a seamstress, so she has many outfits for me to choose from.

Glad to hear that the weather was decent. It can be brutally hot in this area during July and August.

PS: Glad you liked the graphic in thsi posting!

Why would I call it a "racism festival"(Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain rules). Lot of people enjoy Civil War re-enactments.

Heck, the IDF is re-enacting one in Lebanon right now. Sure to work out as well as the last one.

I'm trying to figure out why we haven't heard any reports of large explosions in Beirut as the precision ordnance of the Israeli airforce hits ammunition caches and other Hezbollah assets. You'd think that about all they are hittin id civilian buildings.

"And if the U.N. post was so near to a Hezbollah hide-out, why wasn't the U.N. doing something about it?"

Amen, AOW!

If Israel used its air force to full capacity, Hezbollah would be a thing of the past... As it is, they are trying to prevent as many civilian deaths as possible, something the left dumps upon their heads.

Also, hitting civilians is difficult to avoid when so many Hezbollah hide out in their midst.

I just don't understand why this is so difficult for the left to wrap their tiny heads around.

daffy---hezbollah, hamas, and the rest of the anti-Israeli, anti-Jewish terrorists have been killing Israeli civilians, including men, women and children, even their OWN CHILDREN (on purpose, even), for years, in bloody acts of terror. And now you and other loonie leftists are whining that the Israelis aren't playing fair because they're using better weapons. It's pretty simple, really. If the other guy is bigger and stronger than you, don't try to take his lunch money. That's how you keep peace. Conversely, if the little fellow insists on stealing your lunch money, you beat the hell out of him until he has had enough. Then, if he has any sense at all, he'll enjoy peace with you. Hope this helps you.

Not that it matters to those who refuse to think for themselves, but dear old Kofi could have issued an order for the UN peace keepers (?) to vacate their posts, but remained silent instead. After all, his outrage would be weightless without a few of his "soldiers” deaths. Indeed, why was a UN post taken out? Could it be that the UN flag and Hezbollah flags flew over the same post? Does anyone else think collusion or perhaps the Stockholm syndrome set in on the UN peace keepers (?). It’s for sure they were not keeping Hezbollah cleared out of the area.

Nanc,
From that link you left (AP):

Hezbollah had expected "the usual, limited response" from Israel to the July 12 cross-border raid, in which three Israelis were killed.

In the past, he said, Israeli responses to Hezbollah actions included sending commandos into Lebanon to seize Hezbollah officials or briefly targeting specific Hezbollah strongholds.


May the surprise give Israel the victory!

"The schoolyard bully doesn't stop until someone makes him stop!"

In this case (radical Muslims) the only way to make the bully stop is to kill him. Therein lays the problem for Whinny Assed Liberals (WALs). They would rather appease him; hoping he eats them last. Fortunately there are enough of us homicidal maniacs around to put the bully down.

There really is no other way. Terrorists will not negotiate, in the sense of the word which those who are not terrorists mean the word. Terrorists' terms are also unacceptable to the civilization under attack.

By definition, the position of terrorists is a position of non-negotiation and no compromise. Total defeat is the only way. And, yes, that means killing them.

Currently the background music at my blog is "Woodpecker from Mars" by Faith No More. I like the crash of Middle Eastern strings vs. funk metal guitar. It's like a holy war of music.

When my cousin (God rest his soul!) used to live with us many years ago, he screamed like a madman every time the Dallas Cowboys had a televised game. He lived on the second floor, and our living-room light fixture swayed to my cousin's stomps on the floor; those stomps were always followed by particular expletives if Dallas made a bad play.

Therefore, I fully understand what you said:

If there were a swayable light fixture in my basement, it would be swinging like mad from my stomps on the floor these days.

More on Hezbollah using human shields:

The words of a Canadian United Nations observer written just days before he was killed in an Israeli bombing of a UN post in Lebanon are evidence Hezbollah was using the post as a "shield" to fire rockets into Israel, says a former UN commander in Bosnia.

Those words, written in an e-mail dated just nine days ago, offer a possible explanation as to why the post -- which according to UN officials was clearly marked and known to Israeli forces -- was hit by Israel on Tuesday night, said retired Maj.-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie yesterday.

The strike hit the UN observation post in the southern Lebanese village of El Khiam, killing Canadian Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener and three others serving as unarmed UN military observers in the area.

Just last week, Maj. Hess-von Kruedener wrote an e-mail about his experiences after nine months in the area, words Maj.-Gen. MacKenzie said are an obvious allusion to Hezbollah tactics....

I rarely, if ever watch news on television, but I had it on NBC News at dinnertime. Brian Williams had just finished a viewer mail segment where he answered complaints about coverage and lack of coverage on the war in Iraq with something like "The world is a big place to cover and there is only so much we can put in a 30 minute timeslot." He then preceded to spend the last 10 minutes of the broadcast with a puff piece on the HeadOn (Apply Directly To the Forehead!) headache medication advertisement. Without even a hint of irony in his teleprompter.

5 minutes for the viewer mail segment, 10 minutes for the HeadOn (Apply Directly To The Forehead!) puff piece, 7 minutes divided into commercial breaks every 10 minutes, with six 1 minute bumpers before and after each commercial break to announce what story is coming after the commercials. (The HeadOn story was touted beofre and after every commercial break)

5 + 10 + 7 + 6 = 28 minutes of non-news in a 30 minute news broadcast.

NBC News sucks, and the sad thing is, THEY'RE NOT THE WORST!
