Essay: Why Israel must win this war for the free world

Filed under: Israel, Mellemøsten, Militær, Terror — limewoody @ 9:02 pm

Israel went to war to remove Hizbullah’s strategic missile threat on the Jewish state’s northern border. Hizbullah has kept Israel hostage to its missile threat for the past six years, during which the terror group has transformed itself into a highly effective deterrent force. Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah decided to ignite the northern front 16 days ago on the assumption that Israeli war jitters would prevent the IDF from responding with its full might.

But while Israel is at war only to eliminate the acute strategic threat of some 13,000 to 15,000 short- and longer-range Iranian and Syrian missiles pointed at its major cities, this Israeli campaign must also achieve three additional and necessary outcomes that have far-reaching implications for the future of the Middle East region and the free world.
