Posted on 07/18/2006 5:13:29 PM PDT by Yaakov The Orator
On the O'Reilly Factor, Maj. Bob Bevelacqua compared the Israel to the Nazis for their so-called lack of comprimise. He said that Israel going out of Lebanon and Gaza was like "The Nazis going out of Moscow" and proceeded to say that Israel needed to be more willing to comprimise.
Somebody needs to take away his U.S. passport.
He's gone wierd lately. I think it's because he has a new book out?Anyway...major Bob now sounds more like Ramsey Clark so i shall put him on ignore and certainly won't buy his damn book.
Bevalacqua is the ultimate poser
.....Major Bob has been a great ally and been right on for many, many years......I'll give him his due for his opinion on this one.....I do see his point and hope Israel can limit as much as possible......
He treats his wife like crap.
Bill did challenge him on this. He listed all the compromises Israel has made, and then used his best weapon, "Ah, c'mon"
"Somebody needs to take away his U.S. passport."
Somebody needs to take him away. What a complete incompetent nimcompoop.
Can we FReepers Find out anything on this guy?
He also said he has a company in Beirut that employs 30 people. I think this is why he doesn't want Israel invading Lebanon. He has turned out to be very weird.
SpecOps is a Good and Great thing, but it doesn't give you some special insight into strategic problems....
Major Bob and Ahmadinejad, both comparing Israel to the Nazis. I'm sure he's proud.
His lack of grasp of the facts is simply embarassing for a supposed expert.
That was more general than specific. It was good that he noted that, but I think if he attacked him specifically for the Nazi comment, it would have been more helpful.
"Bevalacqua is the ultimate poser"
Always thought so.
The only way to fight a war is to fight it to win.
My opinion is to pound them even harder.
He opposes Israel's actions because they're wrecking his business.
Did you hear the fool say that he could understand an attack on Syria or Iran, but not an attack on Hezbollah in Beirut?
His personal losses are coloring his objectivity.
Is that like compromise, but for for ladies who have completed finishing school? ;-)
Major Bob is a little random for my taste.
I spell checked, and it seemed fine.
Major Bob caught me by surprise on this one. Obviously his business interest sways his opinion.
I don't think we should be calling him names based on this considering his service as a Green Beret.
Maybe later if he ends up pulling a Scott Ritter on us.
I was watching and yelling at my TV. The guy acts like he has all the answers, but when pressed at the end, he hasn't a clue! It's easy to say that Israel 'is wrong" and that "they need to tone it down," but Israel has every right to go after hizbollah who have, as most wussy Arabs who wave their guns and rocket launchers around, entrenched themselves in the otherwise quiet neighborhoods among the citizens of Lebanon!
Listen, the U.N. threw Lebanon under the bus by not sending in a multinational force last year in order to disarm and remove the poop-stain that IS Hizbollah in Lebanon! Once again, the U.N. proves their irrelevance.
I don't know. I do know that from my humble roots as a simple minded Retired AF Cop, every time I have seen this clown on TV, he seems like the very opposite of what I knew SF Types to be. I have always had a bad feeling bout this yahoo.
Supposed to be a former major. If he was so sh&t hot, why didn't he go higher?
As a matter of fact, if he's so Sh%t hot, what's he doing bloviating on TV instead of doing what he is trained to do, either as an active, a contractor or an advisor?
Sorry-he has always been nothing more than a grandstanding little turd to me
And he even said something like the rest of the Arab world would understand [Israel bombing Damascus or Tehran].
Major Bob isn't playing with a full deck.
O'Reilly's been unwatchable for years, but Bevelacqua's "Jew troubles" are a new revelation.
I spit on both of them.
Thank You For Your Service!
See post 22 for my added thoughts
That Israel is acting like Nazis, or that Israel should try to be careful about killing innocent civilians? If the latter, that's exactly what they're doing -- Israel never targets innocents, and is extremely careful about limiting collateral damage. .....which is quite difficult to do when a cowardly enemy uses civilians as "human shields."
This jerk has also been against us being in Iraq and doesn't like Rummy.
"Lack of compromise" on issues directly affecting your survival is a virtue. Cleaning latrines, slaughtering animals and removing threats are unpleasant jobs, but they all need to be done and done well.
I saw Bevalacqua spewing BS over the weekend. I was pretty shocked but I see him in a very different light now...
No thanks needed-did my job and moved on. All good things end. Had many good times and it set me up for my present job.
I look at it as the AF and I served each other
Yeah, I saw that thing on Sunday too. Baffling and disappointing. Those types always out themselves.
Whatever his service, if he compared ISRAEL to the NAZI'S? Note: I haven't seen the interview. Key word being IF-
He crossed a line.
Nothing in one's prior service makes that comparison remotely respectable and it does, at least for me, raise questions about this man.
What a battle cry that will make....RESTRAINT!!!!!!!
.....no I don't agree about the Nazi reference but his concern about doing too much damage to Lebanon in general....if you read my other posts....you'll see that I totally agree with Israel on this one....I just see his concern.....
Yeah, just because a bunch of blood thirsty killers are hiding among civilians while they fire rockets at your country and people is no reason to get excited.
Better not break anything or kill any of the folks who are letting them hide among them.
He always creeped me out because he closely resembles (in mannerism, voice and appearance) a weirdo neighbor we used to have. Guess that should have been a red flag.
.....well over the long haul I've tended to agree with this "jerk"...as you call him....just cause he has a different point of view does not illicit name calling on my part....I disagree with him on Iraq.....and ALOT of people don't like Rummy.......lol
Betcha old Bob will sign his 180 about the time Kerry does
If he wasn't prior enlisted, he was passed over a few times.
He's an idiot. Who cares what he says?
Around our house, he's just known as Major Knowitall.
Looks too young to be prior emlisted, unless he movd quickly from the E-2/3 ranks to Officer
I agree that Major Bob has some ill-will towards some in the W admin...as Yaakov posted above maybe his business considerations are clouding his judgement.
He seemed to be pretty on-target in many tv appearances after 9-11 but lately he seems to have "jumped the missle".
...you are exaggerating and simplfying what I am saying.. I have no problem with that kind of collateral damage.. all I'm saying is the same damned thing Bush said, Blair said, and many others....I AM NOT in agreement with Major Bob about compromise
Some of these "experts" have been given too many opportunities to prove themselves wrong. This guy suffers from foggy eyes cause by smoke being blown up his posterior.
Seems many of us watched the same thing with the same reaction.
Imagine what sort of security business he can have in Lebanon that doesn't include in some way colluding with despicable characters.
You're right about the part about Syria, that was the tell. That his interest is selfish, personal and unique to Lebanon.
