Israel Allowing Hezbollah To Kill Israeli Civilians

Quote:

THOMAS RICKS: I think it will be. But I think civilian casualties are also part of the battlefield play for both sides here. One of the things that is going on, according to some U.S. military analysts, is that Israel purposely has left pockets of Hezbollah rockets in Lebanon, because as long as they're being rocketed, they can continue to have a sort of moral equivalency in their operations in Lebanon.

KURTZ: Hold on, you're suggesting that Israel has deliberately allowed Hezbollah to retain some of it's fire power, essentially for PR purposes, because having Israeli civilians killed helps them in the public relations war here?

RICKS: Yes, that's what military analysts have told me.

KURTZ: That's an extraordinary testament to the notion that having people on your own side killed actually works to your benefit in that nobody wants to see your own citizens killed but it works to your benefit in terms of the battle of perceptions here.

RICKS: Exactly. It helps you with the moral high ground problem, because you know your operations in Lebanon are going to be killing civilians as well.

You left out the reply by the "editor" of the site about the above blurb:

Quote:

We are not a reputable, objective news source. Walter Cronkite, Edward R. Murrow and other fat senior citizens who think of news as objective would/do hate the SG Newswire. We are part gossip rag, part talk radio, part daily show, part djs (spinning you the newspaper stories instead of songs). Other sites report; we mangle, spin, pontificate upon, slant and direct you to the stuff on the web we think worthy of your notice, whether for humor's sake, or because it's important.




At least they are honest about it, I guess.

I'd argue that Fox, CNN, and all the others should have the same disclaimer.

p.s. that was a Washington Post interview, SuicideGirls doesn't have actual reporters, as most people would assume. But I'll state the obvious just in case.

Yes, and if they keep bombing television stations, banning Arab news in foreign countries and editing the news that other journalists submit, their won't be any of it either. Thats the way that the Judes work.

That is what my "at least they are honest" comment was directed towards...

Actually I was thinking about the same thing.... Seems like a good idea to keep the population scared and keep supporting the war.

One putrid bilgehole makes a completely unsubstantiated accusation of an utterly absurd nature and there is no shortage of buttheads clamoring "BBBBBBBut he works for the Washington Post." Even the asshole interviewing him was flabbergasted. We'll see where this ends up, if anywhere.

Of course they'd do that, its a simple, not too harsh way for the military to complete its goals. They're not stupid ya know: If only the Lebanese had civilian deaths the moral of this war would sink down the level of Iraq.

But who gives a shit? They're not us! We're fine here in the USA, if the people aren't smart enough to realise this tactic and get some answers then maybe the government has no reason to feel bad a few have to die for a much more worthy cause.

I personally don't believe it. Israel is fairly ardent when it comes to any Israeli life (even Israeli Arabs). They've unleashed sheer terror on the Palestinians in the past in response to attacks that only killed 2 or 3 Israelis. When Gilad Shalit (an 18 year old foot soldier) was kidnapped in July they threatened the Palestinians that the "sky would come down on them" if Shalit was harmed in any way.

The idiot seems to be backing away from his statement.

Quote:

The analysts didn't think it was a bad strategy, Ricks noted. Rather, they believed it would be a clever move on the part of Israel if it were true.


Later, however, Ricks attempted to distance himself from the statements. I have heard from a number of very knowledgeable and intelligent people that while such a strategy could be logical and even morally defensible, Ricks said, of course the Israeli public would never accept it.




He sounds like Mel Gibson after he sobered up
