As Hezbollah SG His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah threatened the Dimona nuclear reactor, the ammonia storage tank in Haifa Bay and other strategic target, Yoel Strick, the outgoing head of the "Israeli" entity's so-called Home Front Command, admitted that Hezbollah now has some 150,000 missiles, many of them covering the whole of the entity.
To the "Israelis", although this is a full disclosure, it is a rankling one. However, the questions that puzzles them most is that how the mighty and awesome "Israel" Occupation Forces [IOF] did not prevent this organization from acquiring such a large number of missiles?
When Hezbollah launches salvoes of thousands of missiles, dozens if not hundreds of them will manage to penetrate defensive measures, causing deaths and injuries, the destruction of settler units and infrastructure and the disruption of food supplies, ground and air transportation, medical assistance, the economy and who knows what else.
The Second Lebanon War afforded a small sample of such a scenario. Then, Hezbollah's tactical missiles achieved strategic damage. They caused losses among the population as well as wreaking much damage, causing panic and the mass and shameful flight of settlers, including mayors and public figures.
If the "Israeli" had prevented this rearmament in time, thousands of "Israeli" lives could have been saved.
"Israeli" slammed the containment mentality - which by now had become a doctrine - held by "Israeli" regimes and the IOF for decades. Anyone who lauds this mentality under the guise of "responsible policies" is actually acting irresponsibly. Recent "Israeli" regimes which have allowed Hezbollah to arm itself with such huge quantities of missiles had turned "Israeli" settlers into hostages of the group.
History repeats itself in the "Israeli" entity! Again waiting for the enemy to launch its first strike, with its numerous casualties and damage.
The price of containment may be heavy. Very heavy for the "Israelis" to pay.
