Yeah those were farking huge explosions

UNC_Samurai: They apparently hit an ammo dump.  The missile warheads all went up at once.


That was pretty impressive.
 
2013-05-04 10:34:37 PM  
Justified or not, I bet the Muslim countries that surround it are super happy fine with Israel's new aggression.

Talk about your playing with matches in a sea of gasoline ...

Not all that well around Israel.

i know i'm supposed to support israel as a mormon chrisitian whatever and what not but seriously i wish israel would just put the guns down and move to some remote part of canada.
 
2013-05-04 10:36:50 PM  
I really wouldn't give a shiat what Israel did - nor would the rest of the civilized world - if the U.S. would just stay the fark out of it.

Jesus! They must have been "researching" some serious weapons in there.

shiat if I were that close I would have thought it was a nuke. I mean I know any sufficiently large explosion will mushroom like that but it's pretty easy to be calm and rational watching a YouTube video on my phone vs being within eyesight of an actual war.

holy farking shiat.

give it back to Palestine.
 
2013-05-04 10:38:03 PM  
So, let me get this straight, Hamas shoots rockets at random targets in Israel - Terrorism (Agreed).
Israel shoots even more powerful stuff at random targets all over the middle east - Not Terrorism (What the fark?)

THIS. If this blows up in their face, I will feel no farking sympathy.

Actually yeah, most of them are thrilled. You have to realize that while a lot of them might just give a lot of shiat to Israel publicly, if you read stuff like WikiLeaks and all the diplomatic cables released, most Arab governments are more than happy in regards to what Israel does to Hizbullah, Iran, Hamas, etc...
 
2013-05-04 10:38:57 PM  
There is no good outcome from this. Either a despot remains in power and will be undoubtedly more cruel than before or the most ruthless Islamic extremists group takes control. I would not want to live in a bordering country.

The difference between terrorism and defensive military operations is organization.

It's a common idiom. Used in this context it would be like some guy watching a big explosion and going "oh my god".

utah dude: i know i'm supposed to support israel as a mormon chrisitian whatever and what not but seriously i wish israel would just put the guns down and move to some remote part of canada.


Isn't Utah supposed to be famous as a place religious folks go to settle? Why not welcome them there?
 
2013-05-04 10:42:01 PM  
Yeah Israel should totally let their enemies surrounding them completely annihilate them, as is their stated goal.

Fateh-110 missiles (Iranian) destined to Hizbullah, possibly chemical and biological weapons as well.

Maybe so, but if they ever actually support that position publicly their populaces will tear them to pieces.

STRYPERSWINE: Yeah Israel should totally let their enemies surrounding them completely annihilate them, as is their stated goal.


Obama came out and said Israel was completely justified to do what it did, and had every right to keep on doing so. So the only people complaining about this are basically the far-Left fringe.

Not really, behind closed doors there are a lot of Sunnis who are happy to see Israel placating Shia influence in the region.

Hm, those voices sound identical to the ones I've heard in previous Syrian videos. I guess it's the same people, or they're lazy and re-using audio.

The travel speed difference between light and sound is always so fascinating. No matter how many times I experience it, like with lightning and thunder, I always stop to think about it.

that would be fine. but please include the IDF girls, too. and their sweet M16A2 / M4's, too.

that wasn't a "random target." It wasn't a school or a pizzeria; it was a missile factory.  Meant to be fired at them.  There is a big difference.

As long as the US stays out of it if/when the shiat really hits the fan, I'm fine with it.

DubtodaIll: The difference between terrorism and defensive military operations is organization.


also the not-at-all-randomness of the target

those missiles would have been shot at Israelis or at the Syrian resistance, so good on 'em

So, according to you, if Hamas fires on a Israeli arms depot, that is fine?
 
2013-05-04 10:48:24 PM  
Good, blow the fark out of anybody even thinking about threatening you. That's how you do it.

I don't have anything to add but this has to be a pretty big deal if both Tatsuma and STRYPERSWINE are in the thread, and so early. Maybe I haven't been paying attention but those are two names I haven't seen in years.

Ammo dump, great ammo prices are gonna go up even more. Farking horders.

My mother-in-law naively wants to take my son to visit Israel this summer. Over my dead body. The Middle East may be engulfed in flames by this summer the way things are going right now with Syria and Iran. I didn't take all those trips to the sandbox over the last decade so that my son could be put in harm's way by his grandmother.

ok, i just added you to my target list. sit tight the ballistic missiles are on their way.
 
2013-05-04 10:49:54 PM  
FTFA: The attack Friday coincided with mounting pressure on the Obama administration to formulate a response to the growing risk of weapons proliferation in the Syrian war.

Oh I think we have that already, as of just a few days ago: "The Obama administration plans to announce an arms package to Israel,Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates worth as much as $10 billion -- the centerpiece of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's visit to the countries next week, according to U.S. officials."

It's ok God will protect them.

it'd be better.  But they never do that.  They want lots of civilian blood.  Dead babies.  That's their focus for choosing targets.

Bring it, I picked up some anti-missile missiles on Craigslist.

You're on your own, Israel. Don't you dare expect that you can throw a few rocks to provoke a full scale invasion, and that the United States will then step in and fight your war for you.

Tommy Moo: You're on your own, Israel. Don't you dare expect that you can throw a few rocks to provoke a full scale invasion, and that the United States will then step in and fight your war for you.


Historically they've done quite well on their own, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
 
2013-05-04 10:52:44 PM  
Say what you will, at least the Israelis are doing something.
While I would rather have peace, trying to head off attacks instead of waiting for something to happen, seems to me to be better than hand wringing, harsh letters from the U.N. or doing nothing at all.
I don't really agree with Israel's policies or, for that matter, the U.S.'s policies Re: Israel, but I can't fault Israel for protecting their borders/citizens.
