Iranians Fighting Israeli Forces

A number of Iranian dead have been found in Southern Lebanon according to the Washington Post:

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard have been found among Hizbollah guerrillas slain by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon, Israel's Channel 10 television reported on Wednesday citing diplomatic sources.

It said the Iranians were identified by documents found on their bodies, but gave no further details on how many were discovered or when. Neither the Israeli military nor Hizbollah representatives in Beirut had immediate comment on the report.

Iran, like fellow Hizbollah patron Syria, insists its support for the Shi'ite guerrilla group is purely moral.
Dead bodies mean more than moral support. I wonder when the Israelis will be finding Syrian troops? Probably once they enter into the Bekaa Valley deeply enough.

Why is this not a casus belli for Israel?

It's going to require an extra high standard of proof for this to break free of the Big Media stranglehold and become clear to the whole world, especially the Jew-haters.

My plan matches the plan described only in part.

The plan described is the deception element. The "distraction" as B.H.L. Hart would put it.

see:

Tactics, Strategy, Grand Strategy

Syria Has a Problem

Tactical Moves

"Tactical Moves" is a plan similar to the plan described. Without the amphibious aspect.

The purpose of the plan in place is to give Hizbollah and the Arab street hope. That will make the psychological defeat all the more severe.

The purpose of war is to change minds.
