  1. It seems as though Hezbollah will be shooting down more than just Israeli Walmart drones in the near future if they dare invade Lebanese airspace. Reports today are indicating that the Lebanese Shia militia have come into possession of no other than Russian Pantsir S-1 AD systems and Iranian Bavar 373 SAMS. Eliminating their air assault option, the noose around the Israeli regime’s neck is tightening fast.

  2. You made a good point about “Israel” only being held in check by force.
    As far as they are concerned, their occupation of Palestine is a “holy” affair.
    Whether it is truly “holy,” or “unholy,” is irrelevant to them.
    They “believe” it is their “divine” right to the the land, and only “force” can prevent their plans.
    If it is a “holy” affair, it can only be so, as in one which the “Israelis” are unknowingly working out their unholy designs in the service to a holy “plan” in which they are totally ignorant.
    If it is an “unholy” plan, the outcome will similarly be one in which the “Israelis” have no inkling.
    So, they are truly caught between a “rock” and a hard place.
