    Assad Junior and Assad Senior should have sacked their defense ministers in 1948, 1967 and 1973.

      You keep talking $hit about what happened 50 years ago… see where that gets you. Maybe the apartheid settler enclave should attack the Liberty…. again.

      In 1973 the apartheid settler colony got TORCHED and needed Uncle Sam to come in and threaten to nuke the place.

      Today, Uncle Sam is already spent in failed efforts to end Iraq and Syria while bankrolling the land-grabber army in the interest of antisemitism. Meanwhile, while the settlers themselves cower in bomb shelters, fearing bottle rockets, the pathetic army arrests 16 year old children in nighttime raids!

        Where do you get your history from? Name the gains that were made on the Syria front on 1973?
        Same question goes for the Egypt front. Sadat was given a hollow, symbolic gesture by allowing his troops to cross the canal so he can claim he will negotiate peace from a position of “strength”. It worked and we got the peace treaty despite Carter and Brezynski’s initial opposition to it.
        Remember, we do not need “Uncle Sam to come in and threaten to nuke the place”. We have our own nukes now and then. Let that sink in.
        Start learning real history and not the revisionist crap you seem to be reading.

        I was among the Golani brigade soldiers which took the Hermon back and then some. It was an uphill battle, we were surprised true, you over ran us true, but we came back with a vengeance and retook it. you held on to it for a couple of weeks, that is not a victory. You last over 1500 tanks in the valley that is not a victory. You ended up being pushed back more then you had before 1973 and that is not a victory.

        I seem to recall that Arik and the boys crossed the canal, Damascus was bombed, and the entire Egyptian 3rd Army cut off.

        You are one STUPID Camel prick SWALLOWER aren’t you? The GREAT IDF has destroyed the worthless Assad army many times in the past. At this point it’s almost child abuse. The cowardly Syrians understand that it would make more sense to stick to their Camel pleasuring than to Fuck with the IDF. Leave that to the Sharmouta you call mother.

        That’s a decent summary, friend. Of course the shameless shiksa army is waiting for the body of their western Armies to finish their war preparations…

        @ “Apartheid Antisemites Gotta Go”,

        You’ve been reading too many Arab League history books.

        “the pathetic army arrests 16 year old children in nighttime raids!”

        So sorry one of your relatives got pulled away from his bomb-making factory in Ramallah!
