“Cry me a river…”
So 56 “civilians” died after a building was struck by the IAF?
A building in a neighborhood from which Hezbollah has fired 150 rockets at Israeli civilians, Israeli civilians deliberately targeted by the subhuman simian assholes of Hezbollah.
A building that remained standing, mysteriously, for 8 hours before it collapsed.
What His Majesty wants to know is how on Earth Hezbollah only managed to shove 56 civilians, dead or alive, into the building before they blew it up to create outrage. They’re usually much more efficient in their Pallywood Productions. Are they slacking off?
Oh, and just in case you were wondering:
Nope. No change there. No change whatsoever.
Meanwhile, Israel decides to suspend their self-defense for 48 hours in response to the manufactured outrage and the predictable response from the rest of the anti-Semitic, objectively pro-terrorist world.
Didn’t take too long for Ehud Olmert to hand back the balls he’d borrowed, did it?
UPDATE: DJ Allyn, ITW and LC Stargazer suggest in the comments that maybe this ceasefire is nothing but a “ceasefire” designed to give the IAF a well-deserved rest while plans for the next phase are made. Something that needed to be done anyway, only now they can do it with bonus points for offering a magnanimous respite in the long overdue ass-beating of Hezbollah.
From a military standpoint that makes absolute sense. His Majesty admits to being a bit of a “glass half empty” sort of Emperor on this issue after 60 years of watching Eretz Yisroel always being forced to stop short of getting the job done, and we hope and pray that our pessimism is wrong in this case. In which case, of course, we owe an apology to Ehud Olmert, an apology that we shall offer without reservation and great joy.
