Israel attacks militant bases in Lebanon

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli warplanes attacked Palestinian militant bases in Lebanon Sunday in response to a rocket attack on northern Israel, Lebanese officials said. One militant was killed and at least five were wounded.

The Lebanese army said six rockets were fired at a base in eastern Lebanon while several others hit a base near the Mediterranean coast.

"Lebanese army anti-aircraft units opened fire at the hostile warplanes," the army said.
The jets targeted two militant command posts, one of which was used as a storage facility for weaponry and ammunition, the Israeli army said.

The planes carried three raids on a base of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command in Sultan Yacoub, a village about 3 miles from the Syrian border, Lebanese officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Israel has no problem taking the fight to the enemy, we might be well off to follow there example. You must strike back often and forcefully. These maggots in dirty bed sheets only respond to one thing, overwhelming force. We can provide that, not to mention the fact that we can put a bomb on your front porch if we have your address. Let's take off the gloves and do as Patton would have!

As Patton once said:

"May God have mercy on my enemies, because I won't."

First of, my name is Greg, I was born in the U.S.S.R., immigrated to America at the age of 7 and now reside in Israel. I'm grateful to you, rightwing guy for defending Ameirca's armed forces and the policies of George Bush, though I myself, have been having second thoughts about the planning of the War in Iraq.

But your quote is, as far as I know, inaccurate. Israel attacks ONLY when we have absolutely no choice but to fight back. While Bush has invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, for some reason he, nor any American president has ever given Israel the "green light" to strike in full force at the pali terrorists. We could,as we did in '47-48, '56, '67, and '81 destroy all their bases and completely annihilate all thier means of striking at the heart of our historical homeland yet it's our "best ally", America that doesn't seem to want us to do what it, itself is doing.

That is one of the reasons I moved to Israel. I don't think America is interested in Israel's existence and the economic support we get from the U.S. BTW, is only reasonable when you take into account the strategic importance Israel plays in the fight against terror in the Middle East.

Respectfully, Greg.
