A Catalogue of Iranian Misfortunes

People are touting that the Israelis lost, but as any long-term observer that this is just the usual static. The fact that Hizballah maintains that they only lost 38 thugs is nearly Soviet in its’ implausible blatancy. The fact is that they would even sell out their Iranian backers for a nickel.

While the foreign ministry report highlighted the negative aspects of the UN resolution, the council’s document complained that Hizballah squandered thousands of rockets – either by firing them into Israel or having them destroyed by the Israeli air force.
The writer of this report is furious over the waste of Iran’s most important military investment in Lebanon merely for the sake of a conflict with Israeli over two kidnapped soldiers.
It took Iran two decades to build up Hizballah’s rocket inventory
And they pissed it away most of the launch platforms they spent a decade smurfing in.
The strategy evolving in Tehran since the ceasefire went into effect Monday morning requires Hizballah to employ a range of stratagems – not only to prevent the truce from stabilizing but to stop the Lebanese army from deploying n the south and, above all, the entry of an effective international force.
But that won’t be much of a problem anyway. Once again history will repeat itself: the Elysee will leave Lebanon hanging out to dry (again) In an interview with Le Monde, our favorite idiot foreign minister said:
The first is that no one talks anymore of a multinational force since the Lebanese Army has decided to deploy 15,000 men in southern Lebanon. That is an important political point. And then no one talks anymore of a force that will be given an offensive mandate to disarm Hezbollah. These are two new elements. They were the red lines for us.
The only political importance is the blatancy of the hypocrisy. A French general said the multi-national force drizzling the magical pixie dust of peace will take a year to build up to an effective degree, and this it would likely be a force they would command but staff rather lightly.

Imagine too any future argument about “robust peacekeeping” ever being taken seriously again, except perhaps for its’ comic value.the fuse is lit!
