BEIRUT, May 26 (KUNA) -- The Lebanese army announced on Wednesday that it launched surface-to-air missiles at Israeli fighter jets that had violated the Lebanese airspace.
A statement issued by the army directorate said that the two Israeli jets penetrated Lebanese airspace over the town of Kfar Kila in the south, heading to Shaka town.

Thank GOD we have an affirmative action Community Organizer as President to handles these issues. ;)
In other words Lebanon admitted their SAM’s need some work.
Can Obama handle a three-front war?
God help us. :(
“heading to Shaka town.”
There is a song in this someplace.
If the IDF were really in Lebanese airspace (a big if) then they deserved to be shot at.
This all has the makings of a world war. I am watching in pure amazement at the lack of response from the USA.
It's not something to undertake lightly.
I think the primary function of Time, that of keeping everything from happening at once, is in danger of failing.
Hey, the WH has already fired three diplomats into the area.
Their working it.
Hezbollah launches surface-to-air missiles at Israeli jets.............there, that’s more like it........
They have every right to be in Lebanon or in Lebanon’s air space. They would not need to be there if not for Iran and Syria basically living in Lebanon through their surrogates. Maybe not even surrogates. Probably plenty of Iranians there in person.
All we need is that “Archduke Ferdinand” moment, and it’s all downhill.
The US is in roughly the same position it was back in the 40s when Hitler was rampaging through sovereign European countries. At some point one of our major allies is going to call for us to help, and this time we’ll be completely unable to provide any assistance.
Hell... Obama wouldn’t provide assistance anyway. Who am I kidding?
Isn’t “Lebanese airspace” really Syrian airspace?
But, when if comes to the Israeli AF vs. either Lebanon or Syria, it would be like kicking a rented mule.
“Can Obama handle a three-front war?”
Let’s see, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Mexico. Did I forget somebody?
Oh, yes the CWII with Arizona and 17 other states adopting racist laws.
Oh, yes the muzzies hate us just as much.
I thought he was going to make the world play nice?
Even without grand plan executed by some command center(or regime,) these things could flare up simultaneously as if coordinated deliberately. Opportunistic maneuvers by each hostile player could be enough.
A good idea for the Israelis. Just probing them every once in a while just to see the response and what systems pop on.
