Posted on 01/02/2011 9:32:27 PM PST by Nachum
Hizbullah would likely shoot between 400 and 600 missiles a day into Israel during a future war, a senior Mossad official told a congressional delegation to Israel in 2009, according to a US diplomatic cable published on Sunday. The cable from November 2009 summed up meetings a delegation led by Ike Skelton (D-Missouri) held with top officials from the Mossad, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and the IDF. It was first published on Sunday by Norways Aftenposten newspaper, which received it from WikiLeaks. According to the Mossad official, 100 of the missiles will hit Tel Aviv.

The civilians who have no problem with rocket launchers and artilery emplacements in their back yards are not civilians, they are combatants.
Wow. Is that anywhere close to the truth?
And Israel can drop just one and that would be the end to the story.
Most of what they have are lousy kaytushas or worse.
I know they have some fancy stuff from china, but most of what they have is bluster.
Well... The IDF should be able to make sure that such an attack lasts only about an hour. They most likely already know where the rockets are stored at various locations. Unlike the current US DoD, the Israeli IDF would not choose to sit and talk about peace. Go Israel!
⅝” is a beefy bottle rocket. Hezbollah could start a fire with those things surenuff.
Israel only needs one.
It could get ugly, unless the $hiteaters back off.
They will not, as civilian casualties are their goal.
Then the un pigs can go all hyprecrap on Israel, after some maggot and his kids get vaporized by Israeli artillery response rounds while watching the launchers flame his back yard.. Kind of like our fourth of July, but with others shooting back...
Dont mess with Texas! Thats what we give the childrunz for fun.
If Hezbeulah can fire that many rockets a day, the
Israelis can certainly reply in kind, the secondary
explosions should be spectacular.
The IDF response will be swift and accurate.
No “need” for adjustment, but those things ‘launch platforms’ look like dismantled school yard equipment.
Call it a Palestinian School Yard swing set. That is their “playground”. I joke but it might actually be the case, the Palestinians put launchers in just such places, daring retaliation.
Then they better launch them from northern Lebanon, or eastern Syria, as the New Occupied Territories will encompass a buffer area that includes their present launch locations.
Can anyone say Armageddon?
Not if Israel pre-emptively destroys all their launch sites. They aren't hard to find... any standing building in Gaza is a launch site. Level all the standing buildings and there won't be anywhere near as many launches.
Israel has stated that IF another war occuurs they will not worry about “civilian” casualties as they have been put in harms way by the moosie bastards in the first place.
Ya see from where a rocket is launched, hit it hard with a very big bomb and don’t worry the rest.
Yes, but most are katusha’s, not like I.C.B.M.s
From what I’ve read hezzi now has around 40,000 rockets
While they do have a lot of the 122’s they also have longer
range stuff that will reach Tel Aviv,,,
If they fire them in a salvo there is no way Israel can
shoot them all down,,,
The only way to stop them is to take out the launchers...
I wonder what the percentage is of Katusha-sized rockets vs. the Shahin-sized monsters. Those things are pretty nasty.
Don’t mess with the Israeli military,
They aren’t used as a social experiment for fags.
Yeah, but we all know what will happen:
1. UN will call on Israel to show “restraint” in the face of massive rocket fire.
2. Any civilian casualties on the Lebanon side will be hyped, while those on the Israeli side will be ignored.
3. If Israel launches any offensive, the Peace crowd will deman an immediate ceasefire. The US will initially be mum, but will fall into line within a week or so.
4. The UN and/or the EU will make meaningless promises to deploy ineffectual Peacekeepers.
5. The MSM will salivate and gush over Hezbollah’s rapid clean-up effort and social services.
6. Whatever happens, it will all be Israel’s fault.
The only saving grace here is that south Lebanon is still smarting from the last war. No matter what Hezbollah says, two wars in 5 years will cause them to lose a lot of support among the local populace.
No argument with anything you say.
A few thoughts,
Surprised Israeli military doesn’t target some press.
If push comes to shove Israel will not got down and will strike hard and to hell with the press, peaceniks, and especially the E.U.
“The IDF response will be swift and accurate.” I’m sure if it sends 600 rockets a day into Tel Aviv. Then the IDF will defer to the IAF, it will be swift but it doesn’t have to be accurate and the city that launched the rockets will glow for a long, long time!
That's exactly what they are. These rockets are welded up out of 4" water pipe. All home-made. Light it and run for your life, because if the IDF doesn't spot you, your own munition just might. These are the ones they used in Gaza to harass Sderot until 'Cast Lead' put the kibosh on that.
