    The question is how squishy the civilians they hide amongst are.
    Without that cover they are not really that much better off on defense. They probably have a lot more missiles to launch but if the Israelis are getting the first strike they might not have a lot left for retaliation.

      Why would they invest so much into missiles and so little in the more defensive side?

        it's easy to shoot guns and missiles and scream. It takes a bit of mental acuity and foresight to plan and execute a defense in depth. Throwing punches is easy, any moron can do it. Actually knowing how to fight takes effort.

        Hezbollah are, and have been since the end of Israel's first big expedition into Lebanon in 1982, a well-organized militia. Picture something like the Peshmerga. That's what Hezbollah is. From the little bits I gathered, they were one of the better forces in Assad's coalition in Syria, once Iran and Russia rode to his rescue and committed their forces. Hezbollah also has a shitload of clout in Lebanon. Now, given the Yugoslav-tier shitshow that country became in the '80s, there's still a good chance for factionalism to keep them from simply mobilizing the entire country against an Israeli incursion, but if I were commanding the IDF it isn't something I'd take for granted.

            Lebanon has been essentially failed state with almost non existent economy for decade and half or so. The norm for Lebanon is essentially following: Everything is on fire and it can't get any worse, but it will get worse. Mostly due to government being unable to have any kind of coherent economic policy due to factionalism. Influx of Palestinians and PLO in particular ruined the country and triggered the civil war in 70's. The reason they got extra PaliBlack person refugees and PLO to frick over their politics in early and mid 70's is because they were kicked out Jordan after PLO tried to kill royal family and take over the country. Jordanians killed likely about as much PaliBlack folk in matter of few weeks as Israelis did from 50's to 70's. No one gives a frick about that minor detail in history.

        in 2023/2024 hezbollah has lost 150+ guys in skimishers alone. more than 50% of the guys they lost in 2006. israel also assasinated a number of high ranking commanders, including the deputy commander of the radwan unit. most of the commander where assasinated nowhere near the battlefield meaning israel spending resources tracking them. they'll drop like flies when a war breaks out

          For people who want to write this off as meaning nothing, 17 years is the difference between 1974 and 1991.
          Think of the difference between the US military in 1974 when they fled Hanoi, versus 1991 when the Gulf War happened...

              Just look at how they’re rolling Gaza, the “graveyard of tanks” when literally everybody was predicting it would be a bloodbath for the IDF based mostly on their previous performance in 2006.

              The IDF has massively revised their doctrine when it comes to urban assault and have invested in a combination of drone surveillance and precision artillery that’s a nightmare for any militant trying to set up a defensive position.

                No one but tards or shills thought this.
                >urban assault
                South Lebanon is primarily rural mountains. Bombing a dozen or so Christian or Shia villages didn't work in 2006 and it won't work now.

                Limited aims and at least three times as many troops compared 2006 for starters. After that there is 17 years of post-conflict analysis, firsthand knowledge of how Hez operates, and practical applications of theory using Gaza as testing grounds. On top of that is almost 2 decades of improvements in recon and observation through drone usage, which can also provide constant loitering presence for intelligence gathering as fire support. Now please tell us how Hez can effectively counter Israeli forces given the increasing tech, materiel, and personnel discrepancies while having changed their tactics to prevent Israel from exploiting their knowledge gained from the last conflict.

                >Now please tell us how Hez can effectively counter Israeli forces given the increasing tech
                The same way they repulsed them in 2006. Ambush forces along the few avenues of travel in the mountainous regions while preventing any helicopter landings with Strelas. You talk up the modern IDF capabilities yet Hezbollah are still fricking conducting ATGM strikes against Israeli infantry on the border despite all the drones and artillery in use. How well will they do when they're traversing mountainous terrain that Hezbollah has spent 20 years preparing for invasion?

                Three months of continually dismantling Gaza in numerous encirclement actions that’s resulted them in taking half of Gaza with extremely light casualties given the dense terrain they were fighting in.

                Literally fricking nobody expects to take a hostile city quickly, but Israel has shown that if you aren’t moron tier like Russia, it can be done with minimal losses.

                Also, much of Israel’s difficulty in 2006 was losing momentum in those rural villages. The lightning encirclement and planned demolition tactics employed in Gaza look to be the IDF’s answer to that particular issue they faced. Not to mention the tech and tactics they developed to neutralize Hamas tunnels can also be applied to Hezbollah’s underground facilities.

                Not to the extent they have shown in Gaza. 2006 by all accounts was a slapdash clusterfrick the IDF wasn’t fully prepared for. I think you’re really ignorant or actively downplaying how big an achievement of seizing a hostile city of almost a million people with multiple simultaneous encirclements with only slightly less than 200 deaths is.

                Won’t work well with todays persistent wide area surveillance with multiple drones. Part of the reason hezbollah lost so many guys is because drones identify ATGM launch teams quickly. Also strelas have proven to be particularly useless as hezbollah has shot down zero helicopters. Obviously the odd has revised its tactics and won’t fall prey to bushes from nearly 2 decades ago

                > ATGM strikes against Israeli infantry on the border despite all the drones and artillery in use.
                Can’t stop all of them of course. And it will be very different in an actual war when troops can direct drones and aircraft to certain postiions. Part of the reason there are still ATGMS going through is because surveillance and reconnaissance are limited. This will change with boots on the ground

                Yes, the pullout was due to many factors that were outside the US’ control. The Taliban could easily hide in Pakistan to avoid American bombings and raids, and the corruption and tribalism inherent in Afghani society meant it was pretty much impossible to set up a unified local counter to the Taliban. The US’s big failing was their inability or refusal to recognize that.

                Not to mention, even in their insurgency phase, the Taliban couldn’t even kill that many coalition troops. They simply padded their numbers doing what they already knew, killing other Afghanis.

                and a key part of that point is you cant just bomb an insurgency from the air without being on the ground without at the very least a local force.

              The anon you responded to *does* make a valid point regarding Israel's MOUT capability. You want to write off taking a long time to clear out dense urban environments for comparatively minimal casualties, but that's exactly the way you'd ideally want to do MOUT.
              Taking big, urbanized areas very quickly but with grievous losses isn't a success, and I have no fricking idea what you'd be on to think it is.

              On the topic of conventional operations, their improvements in ISR aren't nothing, and in fact are probably the single *biggest* thing, alongside the IDF's integration of it into their actual warfighting.

              20 years is a very, very fricking long time in development for a nation with money and a serious military and MIC. Thinking otherwise is too delusional to even count as copium.

      they did in 2006..

      It seems Israel's 2006 invasion was not very effective. But they are much more powerful now than they were then and Hezbollah is probably weaker. In the years that followed 2006 Mossad and CIA conducted several high profile assassinations, including of course Soleimani and the legendary Imad Mughniyeh.

      i mean think about it. hezbollah has lost nearly the same number of guys the idf has lost in gaza (wounded is different of course) and gaza is nowhere near comparable to the skirmeshes in the northern border. yet the fatalities are nearly the same. imagine the sheer number of guys hezbolla will lose if a war breaks out

      Flawed thinking. Gaza was an open-air prison. You can bomb a dense city to smithereens but you can't bomb a whole country to smithereens short of nukes. The southern border of Lebanon is hilly. Hezbollah can retreat into the cities, and then Israel basically has to go all in.

        israel never said they wanted to bomb the whole country. they simply want to push hezbollah up to the litani river. hezbollah can decide whether or not the war turns into one where the entire country gets bombed. also if israel wants to frick Lebanon up they simply have to flatten beirut, the economic centre. reminder, lebanon still never fully recover from one port blast that happened in beirut nearly 4 years ago

    Resisting an invasion? None. But Hezbollah's missile arsenal is orders of magnitudes larger and more sophisticated that Hamas, who were still able to overwhelm the Iron Dome. And if Hezbollah is at existential risk Iran will intervene to save their strongest proxy, ex. blockading the Strait of Hormuz again to frick oil prices, sending in proxy militias from Syria, etc.

        They don't. Their military power projection is designed to be done through proxies, supplying them with drones and missiles etc. Conventional power projection is useless against the US and Iran is large and mountainous so US invasion is difficult and extremely unlikely.

        Well, that's the thing. Israel isn't saying they're out to destroy Hezbollah, just push them away from the border. If Israel signals that they're only engaging in a limited offensive, that doesn't give Iran a lot of room for direct intervention.

        Well the Houthis have already diverted global shipping around all of Africa. It'll take a few months for shit to roll downhill but another round of inflation is already guaranteed.

            Tankers and bulk carriers still take the risk because their $ value is lower, but cargo container ships divert because paying war insurance rates on cargo worth half a billion dollars isn't profitable.
            Asia to Europe routes diverting around Africa instead of through the Suez adds so much transit time the annual freight capacity of the fleet gets reduced by something like 20%. Shipping prices will (and have already) increase because of reduced supply. Other routes will be affected also, as ships are diverted to cover the deficit.

    Hezbollah likely will not fare so well if the Israelis go in full invasion mode. They'll likely use the exact same tactics that seem to working well for them in Gaza, using a combination of airstrikes and demolition teams to methodically destroy every possible Hezbollah strongpoint near the border. Sure, Hezbollah can just retreat further into Lebanon, but Israel's aim seems to be setting up a buffer zone or DMZ to the north.

        2006 was a completely different ballgame. It was largely intended to be a large scale hostage rescue operation and it only involved 30,000 IDF troops max. Now, IIRC, Israel has at least 100,000 troops mobilized on the border and they've had the opportunity to use Gaza as a dry run for their new urban warfare tactics. Given how quickly Hamas folded when they met even basic resistance, I wouldn't put too much stock in Hezbollah this time around.

    It'd be 2006 on steroids, the difference is that we know that Hezbollah has limited abilities at force projection and the Israelis aren't going to march in thinking they can go full Rambo with impunity this time.

    A Israeli victory in South Lebanon at this stage would likely result in hundreds if not low thousands of IDF and Israeli civilian deaths along the way and large-scale infrastructure damage that would set back the country as a whole at least 5-10 years.

    There is exactly zero reason for the IDF to be doing this unless if they expect the Iranians to build out-and-out nukes this year or have firm guarantees that the USAF is going to help peace the Iranian nuclear program. That's how costly of an undertaking this would be regardless of whether or not it actually worked.

The Houthis are getting annihilated by us and Bongs.

            Because like with Russia or Britain all the autonomous zones ganged up on the cities after the occupying force left and the "Afghan" government folded immediately. This was caused because Biden decided like a moron to move the "end" point of the Afghan conflict to 9/11 for political brownie points and made all the tribes people mad. US had already largely left and had less than 10k troops, so defense was up to the 'givernment' which I had already explain pretty much doesn't truly exist anywhere but on a map.
            You cannot "win" Afghanistan unless you redraw the made to be more accurate to the actual truth on the ground, which no politician will ever want because it would show the reality that the Afghanistan territory is really just like 2-3 cities.

                We back Israel because they oppose Iran and then they leave the potus on delivered.

          wrong. Pakistan exists.
          «The name Pakistan was coined by Choudhry Rahmat Ali, a Pakistan Movement activist, who in January 1933 first published it (originally as "Pakstan") in a pamphlet Now or Never, using it as an acronym.[31] Rahmat Ali explained: "It is composed of letters taken from the names of all our homelands, Indian and Asian, Panjab, Afghania, Kashmir, Sindh, and Baluchistan."«

            UNIFIL said early on they won't even try

            Ironically the one thing which keeps Israel from effectively genociding Hamas and Hezbollah is the U.S. The US has an effective veto power over Israel’s policies because of the huge amount of aid. Of course now that Israeli demographics have shifted so much into Arabs they probably CAN’T do anything more than what they’re doing currently regardless of US aid. Israel is a European Western civilization (albeit with strong East European bias) that is on the way out due to demographic shifts.

            2006 but worse.

            >Optimism was booming in the Israeli Army Command. According to intelligence estimates Hizbullah was withdrawing. During the night Defence Minister Amir Peretz called Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. "Listen, Hezbollah’s in trouble," Peretz said excitedly to Olmert. "Believe me, there’s never been a flight like this in history. Everything’s going great. If it continues like this, it’ll be spectacular."[40]

            >When the first Yas’ur (CH-53 Sea Stallion) helicopter took off, after unloading its soldiers, it was hit by a missile and burst into flames and the crew of five was killed instantly. The helicopter was probably shot down with a shoulder-fired, infrared guided SA-7 missile. Five Israeli crew members were killed, including two senior officers and Sgt.-Maj. Keren Tendler, the only female IDF soldier to die in the war.

            >The Bmaryamin landing was supposed to be the largest heliborne operation in the history of the IDF. After the downing of the helicopter it was apparent that the landing zone had been compromised and that Hizbullah had prepared ambushes in the area. Headquarters decided to call off further landings. Paratroop commander Col. Hagai Mordechai was ordered not to proceed to the target but to abort the mission and hide at the landing zone until next nightfall. More than 200 Paratroopers had landed safely and Mordechai deemed this to be sufficient to carry out the original orders. Instead a precious 24 hours were lost. The next night the mission was again aborted, this time apparently by direct orders from the Prime Minister. Mordechai told an Israeli reporter: "I didn’t think that at this age I’d find myself hiding in the bushes,"[41] The paratroopers were never given the opportunity to carry out their assignments. The ceasefire was to take effect at 8 AM the following morning. The paratroopers instead used the darkness of the night and started withdrawing on foot to Israeli territory.

            Marxist dialectics are so effective when you have people who just doesnt do a bit of research or has titok attention span, as people have pointed out, you have cherry picked, taken testimonies out of context or out-right lied, I would have said you are a turdie but you sound more like the kind of west individual who opened a Youtube channel to bash capitalism because both you and your parents were so financially moronic to frick your mortgage (for those wondering the reference is Second Thought, although plenty of butthurt zoomies can fit the profile).

            Ultimately experience shows guerrilla organizations such as Hezbollah get steamrolled into the odd murdering of civilians once a half competent military force auch as IDF finally gets free reign to stomp them flat.

                Limited aims and at least three times as many troops compared 2006 for starters. After that there is 17 years of post-conflict analysis, firsthand knowledge of how Hez operates, and practical applications of theory using Gaza as testing grounds. On top of that is almost 2 decades of improvements in recon and observation through drone usage, which can also provide constant loitering presence for intelligence gathering as fire support. Now please tell us how Hez can effectively counter Israeli forces given the increasing tech, materiel, and personnel discrepancies while having changed their tactics to prevent Israel from exploiting their knowledge gained from the last conflict.

                >2006
                While the war did expose serious deficiencies in the IDF, the only reason Israel agreed to the ceasefire was because they were promised that the UN would disarm Hezbollah in south Lebanon. Who knew the UN would essentially turn around and stab Israel in the back by doing absolutely nothing and humiliating them. There’s a reason Israel doesn’t give a shit about what the UN thinks of them anymore.

The fact that the Taliban still persisted and was able to mount a full offensive against a fully armed proxy, after a 20 year campaign of training said proxy and trying to wipe out the taliban, shows that we failed. Thats where they blew us the frick out. Youre still looking for like a single military engagement as if theyre some uniformed force on the highway of death lmao.

                Yes, the pullout was due to many factors that were outside the US’ control. The Taliban could easily hide in Pakistan to avoid American bombings and raids, and the corruption and tribalism inherent in Afghani society meant it was pretty much impossible to set up a unified local counter to the Taliban. The US’s big failing was their inability or refusal to recognize that.

                Not to mention, even in their insurgency phase, the Taliban couldn’t even kill that many coalition troops. They simply padded their numbers doing what they already knew, killing other Afghanis.

            Taliban told the US to frick off until we were 3 CSGs deep in the Med and about to invade, then they realized the US wasn't fricking around and tried some 13th hour diplomacy but it was too late. You might understand why there's a difference between that and the current state of agreement which sees the Taliban cooperating with the US to deal with terrorists on their soil.

          from my understanding the pro palestinian anons point is the basic guerilla paradigm - as long as we are alive we win. doesnt matter how many of us u kill, nor how long u occupy us.

          which was already answered by , basically that we wont genocide u but we will sufficiently cripple u to regime change your state.
          perhaps in gaza the best case scenario is the gazans somehow accessing the sinai, in which case the egyptian government will genocide the pali's but no one will b***h about it because it's muslims killing muslims, like

          Lebanon has been essentially failed state with almost non existent economy for decade and half or so. The norm for Lebanon is essentially following: Everything is on fire and it can't get any worse, but it will get worse. Mostly due to government being unable to have any kind of coherent economic policy due to factionalism. Influx of Palestinians and PLO in particular ruined the country and triggered the civil war in 70's. The reason they got extra PaliBlack person refugees and PLO to frick over their politics in early and mid 70's is because they were kicked out Jordan after PLO tried to kill royal family and take over the country. Jordanians killed likely about as much PaliBlack folk in matter of few weeks as Israelis did from 50's to 70's. No one gives a frick about that minor detail in history.

                both sides want to genocide the other. the only thing stopping palis from doing it is that they don't have the power for it and the israelis is that they are dependent on international support.
                the moment palis have enough weapons/manpower or israelis stop needing international support you can be sure they will do it

            I think a key point is its not "as long as we are alive we win", its "as long as we are alive the Israelis have not won" coming from a perspective of survival

            both sides want to genocide the other. the only thing stopping palis from doing it is that they don't have the power for it and the israelis is that they are dependent on international support.
            the moment palis have enough weapons/manpower or israelis stop needing international support you can be sure they will do it

    Ironically the one thing which keeps Israel from effectively genociding Hamas and Hezbollah is the U.S. The US has an effective veto power over Israel’s policies because of the huge amount of aid. Of course now that Israeli demographics have shifted so much into Arabs they probably CAN’T do anything more than what they’re doing currently regardless of US aid. Israel is a European Western civilization (albeit with strong East European bias) that is on the way out due to demographic shifts.

    2006 but worse.

    >Optimism was booming in the Israeli Army Command. According to intelligence estimates Hizbullah was withdrawing. During the night Defence Minister Amir Peretz called Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. "Listen, Hezbollah’s in trouble," Peretz said excitedly to Olmert. "Believe me, there’s never been a flight like this in history. Everything’s going great. If it continues like this, it’ll be spectacular."[40]

    >When the first Yas’ur (CH-53 Sea Stallion) helicopter took off, after unloading its soldiers, it was hit by a missile and burst into flames and the crew of five was killed instantly. The helicopter was probably shot down with a shoulder-fired, infrared guided SA-7 missile. Five Israeli crew members were killed, including two senior officers and Sgt.-Maj. Keren Tendler, the only female IDF soldier to die in the war.

    >The Bmaryamin landing was supposed to be the largest heliborne operation in the history of the IDF. After the downing of the helicopter it was apparent that the landing zone had been compromised and that Hizbullah had prepared ambushes in the area. Headquarters decided to call off further landings. Paratroop commander Col. Hagai Mordechai was ordered not to proceed to the target but to abort the mission and hide at the landing zone until next nightfall. More than 200 Paratroopers had landed safely and Mordechai deemed this to be sufficient to carry out the original orders. Instead a precious 24 hours were lost. The next night the mission was again aborted, this time apparently by direct orders from the Prime Minister. Mordechai told an Israeli reporter: "I didn’t think that at this age I’d find myself hiding in the bushes,"[41] The paratroopers were never given the opportunity to carry out their assignments. The ceasefire was to take effect at 8 AM the following morning. The paratroopers instead used the darkness of the night and started withdrawing on foot to Israeli territory.

The Hizbullah had prepared an ambush from hidden positions on the hilltops. The tanks were attacked by missiles, probably of the Kornet type.[8] Eleven of the tanks were hit and several went up in flames.[49] Eight tankers, including two company commanders, and four Nahal infantry men died in the initial battle of Sulouqi.[50] Hizbullah fighters used ATGMs, small-arms fire, and mortars to suppress the Nahal Brigade, preventing them from providing effective infantry support for the armor forces.[51] Timur Göksel, the former chief spokesperson for UNIFIL later commented that "anyone dumb enough to push a tank column through Wadi Saluki should not be an armored brigade commander but a cook."[51]

          Because they realized the deficiencies the ISF was suffering and basically got cheated by the UN. Of course they would be bitter about it.
