Stupid Reagan stopped Israel from finishing the job in 1982...then turned tail and ran from Hizbollah in 1983, after being deceived by Baker and Weinberger.

Israel succeeded in expelling the PLO.

What no one foresaw was Hezbollah would take its place. Its now a virtual state in Lebanon.

A Hizballah tunnel was located between Misgav Am and Metulah at the outset of the IDF operation on Tuesday and it is being neutralized. The engineering unit went straight to this tunnel because it had been located in advance by Military Intelligence.

Israel was about to destroy the PLO when RR stopped them and they managed to escape en masse to Tunisia on a cruise ship. Baker showed RR a photo of a dead child and told him it was a Palestinian killed in an IDF attack. RR called Begin and angrily demanded an end to the attacks. (The child was a Druze killed in s PLO attack, as the lying snake Baker knew). Hizbollah butchered our Marines and RR let Caspar halt s planned massive airstrike against their positions.

I met a mining engineering student a couple of years ago. He was from Israel studying over here. I asked him if he had already served his military service - or is that something they do later.

“I’m still in it. Here I study how to build tunnels. Back home I destroy them!”

Wouldn't five minutes of atomized gasoline under pressure at one end—and a match—be sufficient?

Probably work pretty good.
Before my dad passed, he told me how they drove the enemy out of the tunnels/caves during the WWII invasion of Okinawa: Flame throwers.

That kills everything in the tunnel, but the tunnel is still there. My question is how the heck did they build that tunnel in the first place? Only thing I can think of is Israel knew they were building the tunnel, collected as much intelligence as they could on the tools and techniques being used and when the tunnel was complete they moved in.

Israel launched an operation today to secure the northern border from Hezbollah terrorist infiltration through underground tunnels.

This should never have been announced in the news. The intelligence should have been handed off to the IDF and they should have quietly booby trapped or better yet placed explosives and sensors that could be command detonated when the sensors indicated enemy presence in the tunnels. Interdict the intrusion and bury the bodies at the same time.

YES! EXACTLY!

Israel shoukd be in a very assertive “You wanna play; you gonna PAY” ops configuration.

Shovels are easy to operate. Ragheads ‘ll dig another tunnel.

Israel needs to make sure that any terror attack against them comes at THE GREATEST POSSIBLE EXPENSE in terms of men and material. They need to make the efforts against them ridiculously wasteful: ensure that every terror mission is a 99.9% certain suicide run, and results will be negligible. Force Hexbollah to operate at a Baghdad Bob level of denial of the obvious: that both their existence and their assaults achieve ZERO.

they expend all the time, energy and effort to build tunnels, but don’t produce a damn thing to support themselves, and demand handouts from the UN.

My Father in Law was overhead of the beaches in a USMC Corsair on that day and his observation in regards to flame weapons was that there was about 15 seconds worth of flame in the tank and then you had to lug it all over the battle until you could get a refill because if you dropped it you caught hell from the commanders who wanted to use them further inland as well. Then there was the stark terror of lugging the dang thing before you expended the fuel because all JAP snipers were looking for the guys carrying the tanks and they aimed for the tank not the guy, thus insuring immolation.

The modern approach is to use an APC or tank to haul the fuel and spray.

The diesel that runs the thing is mixed with an oxidizer and surfactant and sprayed in.

MY question is this ; Israel is a tiny country with a relatively small population and an economy that reflects these facts . Yet Israel was able to quickly build a magnificent WALL , all along their West Bank / Pal-land border . It is able to cordon off the Gaza border to the point that not even to most vigorous of violent border breaking attempts succeed . It is able to guard it’s coastlines so that almost no terrorist or illegal immigrant boats get thru . It is able to deploy it’s military , within it’s own boundaries , and to discover , attack , and destroy any threats to it’s national integrity . Including these tunnels .
WHY CAN’T WE DO THAT ?
The U.S. Constitution you say ?
Suspend it . It’s time to try the Israeli model . Time to get tough . Time for a leader with full plenary powers .
Who I support , 100%! Screw this undermined feckless system we have devolved in . We have thrown our most precious pearls to the worst of the swine and the swine are trying to take over . Down with the swine . You should own what you earn and they haven’t earned it . They have earned , and are owed , nothing.... It’s time .
