Nasrallah and Hezbollah in Range of Israeli Missiles (1)
Iranian al-Hezbollah has large numbers of low accuracy rockets. Only a limited number of rockets will pose a serious threat. Iron Dome (while less than perfect) will further reduce the rocket count headed towards high population areas.
Israel has high accuracy missile. Iranian al-Hezbollah has no Interceptors in Lebanon, and Russia will not protect Iran in Syria.
It is pretty obvious who would win any Iranian Rocket vs. Israeli Missile exchange. Bottom line… Nasrallah talks big, but does nothing.
Nasrallah never lies. End of discussion.
But even by the end of 2010 the Israelis knew they were unable to defeat Hezbollah and would suffer huge damage in any conflict. Today Hezbollah are better armed and as the world has seen, Israel’s support of the terrorists in it’s war against it’s Arab neighbours has been a humiliating defeat.
This from an Israeli ex-army general
” Israel cannot defeat Hezbollah in a direct engagement and the Lebanese guerrilla group would inflict heavy damage on the Israeli home front if war broke out, a former Israeli national security adviser said Thursday.
“Israel does not know how to beat Hezbollah,” said Giora Eiland, an army ex-general who served as national security adviser to former prime ministers Ariel Sharon and Ehud Olmert.
“Therefore a war waged only as Israel-versus-Hezbollah might yield damage on Hezbollah, but Hezbollah would inflict far worse damage on the Israeli homefront than it did 4-1/2 years ago,” he told Israel Radio. ”
By 2018 even the pro Israel “Atlantic” was writing
“Since Hezbollah’s last war with Israel in 2006, it has expanded its rocket and missile stockpile. Its arsenal is also now far more technologically advanced. Israel’s missile-defense systems can counter some threats, but would likely be overwhelmed by the sheer number of rockets and missiles that Hezbollah can now fire”
Whilst it depends on American cash handouts to the tune of billions and has a modern military “the Atlantic nevertheless is forced to accept that
” it is a small country with limited infrastructure: It has one international airport, a handful of major power stations, and an electrical grid that Israeli experts have already warned is vulnerable to attack.”
Nasrallah continually promotes peace, a difficult line to pursue whilst Israel, in the illegally occupied territories massacres Palestinian men, women and children and of course attacks countries like Syria without the slightest regard for international law.
In my firm opinion, Hezbollah will never be the aggressor, the instigator of war. Israel has been the aggressor in all its wars since 1947, save 1973, but that war resulted from the Zionazis’ refusal to seek peace with Egypt.
Hezbullah only has to demonstrate that it can extract a high price from Israel in return for that entity’s aggression. With the huge number of missiles in Hezbullahs arsenal and a range covering all of Israel, there is no question that a massive shock would be delivered to the population, who would literally all be scampering for their shelters. Such an outcome would be disastrous for the settler project. No doubt, much of their dilettante and cosmopolitan young would be seeking out safe alternatives throughout the West. It would shatter Israel’s false sense of omnipotence and invulnerability. That psychological blow could lead ultimately to the failure of the whole Zionist project.
Hezbullah has shown, both in Lebanon and in Syria, that it is a fighting force to be reckoned with. It offers evidence to the whole region that local disciplined and motivated forces can strike fear into the heart of the aggressor and fight it to a standstill, as in 2006. Bear in mind, Hezbullah is even stronger and more battle hardened today that it was in 2006. As for Iron Dome, with the arsenal available to His Eminence Nasrallah, it would be easily overwhelmed.
“It is pretty obvious who would win any Iranian Rocket vs. Israeli Missile exchange. Bottom line… Nasrallah talks big, but does nothing.”
If there’s exchange of fire / rocket between Iran vs Israel, it could easily develop into big scale war in the region. Assume Iran is able to destroy vital facilities in Israel, on that situation would not Israel will have to resort to their last option? Drag USA, NATO, onto the war or just Nuke Iran with small tactical missile.
So does the other side, in case Israel overcome Iran, would not Russia must and have to get their hands on that matter? Because we knew obviously, oh yeah, Russia is next! WW3 anyone?
I believe Nasrallah is very wise, to keep Israeli in check, simply in order to preserve peace & stability in Iran / middle east as a whole. And Iran needs to buy time to strengthen & advance their army.
And yes! I personally want to see Bibi and Israel are being punished, sooner than later, for what they have done to Palestinian every single day! And to stop Israel to wage more conflict in the region! Thanks.
The arrogance of The Chosen has always been their Achilles Heel.
While some of your technical claims are correct, you’ve completely ignored the fact that we have sat on Israeli behavior during large scale missile attacks. Last year, after a 3 day bombardment by Hamas o Israeli targets, Israel sued for a cease fire. That was with no casualties and a 25% intercept rate from iron dome against 100+ unguided rockets.
What do you think Israel will do against 5× the number o rockets at 10× the range?
The Zionist Regime tried to destroy Hezbollah with the aid of Bush and Blair and the rest of their dumb goy muscle. They got their butts kicked. The IDF kiddie killers found that fighting real men was a bit different to gunning down unarmed kids in Gaza. They sh*t their pants and went running to Uncle Sam, demanding that he do their dirty work for them. They’re not going to do anything, unless they want an action replay of 2006.
In 2006, despite having all the weapons that US taxpayer’s money can buy, Israel failed miserably, when confronted by Hezbollah.
Israeli “soldiers” – long accustomed to brutalizing defenseless Palestenians – ran away and cried like babies, when they came face to face with the warriors of Hezbollah.
In any future confrontation, Hezbollah will once again, give a sound trashing to the cowards and child-killers.
The interviewer strikes me as someone dense with his repeated efforts to get Nasrallah to be specific.
Obviously, the latter is not going to get specific, so why doesn’t the interveiwer move on to a more interesting line of questioning?
It’s like talking to children, trying to get the point across that you have the means to punish them severely, but you would rather that they learn from the warning, and simply behave. Russia does the same thing lately with the west.
When Sayed Nasrallah speaks of being able to choose any and all options, of course this factor of educating and disciplining the unruly child will be included in the deliberations of each situation.
In other words, Hezbollah will consider the provocation from Israel, and determine the military action required to address it (or stop it before it happens, for Hezbollah will likely know this of course) – but will also consider if this is the moment to teach a stronger lesson, and if that lesson fits into the situation and its requirements.
This is what Sayed Nasrallah is wishing to be heard by Israel – learn from these easy lectures, because they will only get more severe with every situation moving forward.
Thank you for an interesting interview. Nasrallah is an honorable man.
This is worrying.
The people running Israel are Messianicly posessed psychopaths. They also have unclear weapons.
Iran should tone down any threathening rhetoric.
@Anon (the one who wrote, Iran should tone down any threatening).
Surely you mean, Israel should tone down? (For example, A123 above).
