Posted on 10/20/2012 3:44:12 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Hizbullah's rockets were meant to be used against Israel. Instead, it appears they are now being fired at Arabs. Syrian opposition forces say Hizbullah has been firing hundreds of rockets into Syria on a daily basis, and is a full participant in the Syrian civil war.
Speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat, Syrian opposition Local Coordination Committee-member, Mohamed al-Homsi, accused Hizbullah of intervening in the fighting alongside the Syrian regime with all of its power, adding Hizbullah is firing its rockets the same rockets that it claims are to fight Israel into Syrian territory to kill Syrian people.
Al-Homsi, who is a member of the Homs Local Coordination Committee, confirmed that between 100 and 150 rockets and mortar shells are being fired by Hizbullah into the Syrian town of al-Qaseer and the surrounding villages on a daily basis, from the groups military positions in Hermel [on the Syrian-Lebanese border].
He told Asharq Al-Awsat it has become clear that Hizbullah is taking part, with all of its strength, in this battle, which it considers itself to be a part of." He said the missile barrages were intensifying and that Iranian proxy militia has sent thousands of its troops into Syria to fight rebel forces. .....

LOL, a case of the enemies arrows falling on his own head.
Is this considered optimal?
Well, THAT assault took a nasty little turn.
But look at it this way - so long as one Muslim sect is fighting another, they have no resources left over to turn on outsiders (Jews, Christians, Buddhists and others).
But that last man standing - he gonna be one ding-dang MEAN son of a gun.
If we are fortunate, his ammunition will be limited to whatever he can pick up and throw.
Some would say Muslims killing Muslims is optimal.
Why does McCain thinks it serves our interests to be allied with these guys?
Just let them waste each other. Keep the white boys and the Jew boys out of this.
The best thing we could do is to keep them fighting and killing each other.
There’s no fool like an old fool.
Works for me...
Works for me...
Napoleons Maxim: “Never interfere with the enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.”
it’s syria ~ they’re white and with substantial jewish ancestry to boot.
So...where is the bad news?
I guess the bad news is that McCain cares.
If so they sure picked the wrong neighborhood to live in.
Can someone remind me which side we are supplying weapons too?
We do know Stevens was into supplying weapons right up to his ears.
So, is that Iran’s rockets targeting Iran’s ally?
You calling me an old fool?
Not speaking for McCain, but Hizbullah is supporting the government not the opposition. So what we know is Iran, Syrian Alawi and Hizbullah are aligned with Assad and the Government. The Rebellion is the Free Syrian Army, Muslim Brotherhood, Al qaeda, Kurds and Sunnis supported by Saudi.
What the US along with Saudi Arabia should have done early and quickly, was support the Syrian Free Army and a quick end to the rebellion. SFA is now weakened.... now it is head they win, tails we lose.
We should be allied with none of these groups ~ not in any way at all. The Saudis still dream they can convert AlQaida to something.
Muslims killing Muslims? How quaint. Pass the popcorn.
The key point here, I think, is that the rockets are being fired at the rebels, not Assad’s forces. This is Shi’ia (and Iran) versus Sunni (Al Qaeda and the Saudis), and could bring a Muslim religious civil war to the whole ME.
You were talking about McCain....
Muzzlemen killing muzzlemen. I can live with that!
They didn’t pick it ~ they were there long before Abraham left Sumer.
This is obviously a Zionist plot. Thanks Eleutheria5.
Hey, your probably right.
I don't want to see good people bombed either
just trying to remember how the were good to America
>> “they were there long before Abraham left Sumer.” <<
I realize that folks lived much longer then, but Abraham was just a few generations down from Noah.
Having a moslem in the White House is definitely sub-optimal.
In Syria's war, long-repressed minority finds new freedom - October 17, 2012 - Earlier this summer, the Syrian Army largely abandoned the Kurdish regions as fighting intensified in Damascus and Aleppo, leaving the guerrillas in de facto control.
Many within Syrias opposition movement, including rival Kurdish political groupings, accuse the PYD of coordinating the handover of power with the regime something the PYD denies.
The PYD is the representative of the regime in Kurdish areas, says Faris Tammo, a leader of the Future Movement Party, another Kurdish political group, speaking in the Turkish city of Antakya. These are not free areas.
If you put up the flag of the revolution, they would arrest you, says Runi, a 24-year-old commander of Selahattin al-Ayyubi, a mainly Kurdish brigade fighting with the FSA in Aleppo who is originally from Afrin.
Speaking in Antakya, he claims members of his brigade have been arrested and tortured by the PYD when returning to see their families in the town.
He believes the guerrillas are hostile because they feel increasingly insecure in their hold over the population. They dont want any Kurds to have military forces apart from them," Runi says.
There is growing tension in Afrin, said another resident contacted by telephone, 25-year-old Kawa. People are separated between those who support the revolution, and those who support the PYD.
Probably there will be fighting between the FSA and the PYD, says Runi.
The FSA rebels are not the only potential enemies. Ankara has also expressed deep alarm at the PYDs rise, mainly because of the groups close links to the Kurdistan Workers Party, better known by its Kurdish acronym, the PKK.
While both the PKK and PYD have tried to play down their connections, in Afrin they are hard to miss. Decorating the walls of every new government office visited by the Monitor were photos of the PKKs imprisoned leader and founder, Abdullah Ocalan. And nowhere were the connections more apparent than in the martyrs' memorial center. Next to each photograph was a text explaining where and when each person had died; the majority were killed fighting in Turkey.
We are Kurds, so we have a lot of martyrs there, said Hekmet Hebo, head of what is now the Institute for Martyrs Families.
as I’ve kept saying - it’s better for Israel for Assad to win, but not by too much. Let him be continuously occupied with fighting the Saudi-sponsored Wahabbi AlQaeda terrrorists. Both sides will be busy and have less time to focus on Middle-Eastern Christians and Israel.
In fact they would have indo-european blood from earlier -- 1700 BC and the Hittites.
They produced at least one Emperor (Elagabalus) and probably Septimus Severus's entire dynasty of Emperors were of Syrians blood from Emesa (modern day Homs)
This was then a Byzantine fief for a long time, this was one of the centres of Christianity before Islam came along and still IS quite Christian (officially 10% but probably 20% with the numbers of Christian refugees from post-Saddam Iraq)
Thanks for the history lesson and a chance to revisit the Old Testament.
It’s better for nobody to win, really. Iran’s axis gets fragmented, and there can be no organized, large-scale attack on you-know-who. The Palis take a chill pill because they can’t realistically expect that, and all that remains to be dealt with is the Egyptian border and Ghaza.
“I guess the bad news is that McCain cares.”
George McGovern might also care, and Edmund Musky and John Kerry. A bunch of failed presidential candidates care, and that scares off all the other people that somebody might listen to.
I doubt the Zionists could dream a scenario up this good, but so long as it’s happening, why not stir the pot to keep it happening.
At some point turning it into a war where Moslems kill only Moslems might be a good idea, but that stuff spills over as well.
So far American involvement has simply ignored the existence of Christian communities in Syria.
The Sumerians are referenced at least once ~ i believe their last king made it, but there’s a lot of history before that. Adam was probably still off in the highlands of Chile at the time.
Sorry to wake you from your nap!
Sumer is just another mame for chalde, which is what Abraham was. They were the descendents of Shem at that time, which was two generations before the first Hebrew (or Hibiru, as they were first known) who was of course Jacob.
Abraham showed up quite some time after Semites (Akkadian) moved into the area and absorbed the Sumerians.
I'm of the school who thinks the kindly priests and scribes who pieced together the earliest revelations and histories failed to find the Sumerian archives ~ so they missed several thousand generations between Adam and Abraham.
The petroglyphs in the Kola have a story that's clearly that of Lot's wife ~ the stones are dated to 8000 years ~ BTW, it's all about a woman who failed in her duty to find husbands for her daughters.
The Biblically illiterate make many foolish statements.
Of the generations between Adam and Abraham, only Noah’s matters. All were killed but those aboard the ark.
Don’t worry about the dating schemes, they were run back from the desired outcome, thus are without meaning.
nobody to win is the best option yes. a continuous self-inflicted turmoil among moslems is the best options. We should covertly help whichever side is losing and turn against a side when it gets too strong.
exactly, just as in Iraq.
Chaldea was the new name given by the Semitic peoples who came to Sumer. Actually even the name Sumer is a later adaption. The original peoples were probably Dravidian and called themselves Sa-gi-ga or the “black headed people”. These were the peoples who stayed where the tower of Babel (most likely the ziggurat in Uruk) was built.
