Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Thursday night that, "We expected Hizbullah to break the rules, and now we intend to break them.
"We do not mean for this event to end when the situation returns to how things were a few days ago," he said.
Peretz's comments came before his meeting with Assistant Secretary of State David Welch.
Too bad... I actually wish they would break the rules; rules don't apply when dealing with koranimals.
Good hunting, Israel!
Couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch. Good luck and God speed in their venture.
Good. Go get 'em.
Go Israel go! Kill all the bloody Hezbollah. Take out Hamas too.
....Kick some rag head BUTT!!!!!!!!!!!
The question now becomes, do the Hizbullah puppet masters (Syria and Iran) allow Israel to delve deeply into southern Lebanon to break Hizbullah or does Syria become directly involved. If Syria and Iran believe now is the time to press Israel I would think problems will shortly begin in the West Bank as well.
Danny Alayon (Israeli Ambassador to the US) earlier today stated Israel's first task was to cut off all outside aid to Hizbullah and he then went on to say that although he wouldn't discuss what options Israel would take with regard to those two that Syria and Iran were playing with "fire".
Izzy needs to put the hammer down and keep it down.
That a terrific coin of phrase. All right from now on, it's "turbinate'em".
One thing about "breaking" Hizbullah... Won't this require Israel to go all the way to the source?
I think that's the real question. If they plan on permanently breaking Hizbullah, they're going to have to cripple Syria's ability to aid these thugs and possibly Iran's ability as well. Otherwise, they're looking at a permanent (Israeli) presence in southern Lebanon and I don't think they want that.
Good hunting Israel.
Mission Accomplished will occur when Hizbullah, Hamas and most of those Islamo-fascist countries are destroyed all looking for their 72 virginized incarnations of Helen Thomas.
Haven't seen that movie in years.
"Very good. But brick not hit back."
May Hizballah and Hamas be utterly broken.
We'll see if Peretz can live up to the Moshe Dayan-Golda Meir-Menachem Begin-Ariel Sharon tradition.
Its hard for me to see him getting really tough and its hard to believe the United States would allow things to go too far in Israel's favor.
In 1982 the United States stopped Begin from destroying Arafat and the PLO when the Israeli army had them trapped in Beirut.
That's when our Marines landed with the nasty consequences.
We'll see who has the cojones to deal with Hezbollah and its backers including our own leaders.
