Do You Still Think It's Just a War With Lebanon?

If you have been reading the MSM or getting your covergae only from MSNBC and CNN, you may be under the impression that Israel is just at war with Lebanon. Why then would there be Iranians killed in the battle if it was just against Hezbollah or Lebanon?

JERUSALEM — The bodies of Iranian Revolutionary Guard soldiers killed by the Israeli army in Lebanon have been transported to Syria and flown to Tehran, senior Lebanese political sources said.

Israeli and Egyptian security officials confirmed the news, which follows a report that first appeared in The New York Sun, that Iranian forces posted to southern Lebanon have been aiding Hezbollah terrorists in their attacks against Israel, including helping to fire rockets into Israeli population centers.

The Lebanese sources said between six and nine dead Iranian Revolutionary Guard soldiers were brought in trucks last week into Syria for a flight back to Iran. They said the bodies were transported along with the tens of thousands of Lebanese civilians fleeing to Syria.

So Iran is not just fighting a proxy war but has troops involved in the battles. That is war between Israel and Iran.

I expect an Osirak-type attack on the Iranian mainland before the end of the year.

Liberals love nuance but conservatives live in reality. The black and white of this is simple: Iran is actively fighting against Israeli forces and most likely instigated the attack against Israel that set this whole fiasco in motion.
