Perspective

Always interesting to see someone make an observation on a subject for which the actually have creditials, in such a way that you know they are completely correct.  This guy potentially puts some ego aside in this, from Wizbang linked through a bunch of others:

Update VI: Israellycool is liveblogging the day’s events, and he has some very interesting updates. He links to Big Pharoah whose father offered his insights:

My dad was a general in the Egyptian army. His comments are always so informative especially if they were related to a war that broke out. He had this to say about Lebanon:

This idiot Nasrallah. He is so funny. He keeps on issuing threats, he has no idea what he is talking about. What Israel is doing to him now is just gentle padding on the shoulders. Abou Shakha dah didn’t see what we saw. Israel fought on 3 fronts in 1967 and it was hell. I was there, I saw it all. He has no tanks, no boats, he has nothing except a few toys he got from Iran and it seems abu shakha dah don’t know that Israel confronted 3 of the most powerful armies in the region at the same time. If Israel wanted to brutally crush him it can do so in 1 hour.

*Abu Shakha dah literally means “this guy with the piss”. We use this slang term to refer to a grown up whose capabilities is of a baby who wets himself.

The Israelis took on three armies in ’67, not a bunch of wackos with small arms and missiles.  The IDF is being very careful not to whack a bunch of civilians in this, but they will get the job done.  With Hezbollah actually hitting Haifa they are not going to be holding back.  Reports are that they are cutting Hezbollah’s escape routes first before attacking the units in southern Lebanon.
