America was fully justified in liberating totalitarian Iraq in 2003. Saddam Hussein was a profoundly dangerous dictator who had used chemical weapons against civilians and committed genocide against his own citizens. The Anti-American Saddam Hussein posed a severe threat against America due to the possibility that he would use his chemical weapons again. America ended that threat. The only thing wrong with the US liberation of Iraq was that the US lacked an exit strategy and for no rational reason maintained vast forces in the country for years. The US should have partitioned Iraq and given its ethnic regions independence.
America was fully justified in liberating totalitarian Afghanistan in 2001. The Talibans harbored al Qaeda and still do so. The Taliban had imposed a neo-medievalist totalitarian regime on its citizens which was especially cruel towards girls and women who were turned into effective sex slaves and had to cover their entire bodies in public. Al Qaeda posed (and still poses) a severe threat against America. The only thing wrong with the US liberation of Afghanistan was that the US lacked an exit strategy and for no rational reason maintained vast forces in the country for years. The US should have partitioned Afghanistan according to language between Turkmenistan (Turkmen), Uzbekistan (Uzbek), Tajikistan (Persian) and Pakistan (Pashto and small languages).
These two US wars were fully justified and in no way mistakes but became severe disappointments due to the lack of US exit strategies. Both totalitarian regimes were threats against international peace and security.
Bashar al-Assad, the dictator of totalitarian Syria, has like Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons against his own civilian citizens. He maintains missiles with chemical warheads which are intended to target Israeli cities. Syria harbors the strongest terrorist organization in the world, Jihadist Hezbollah. Assad has proven that he does not hesitate to use chemical weapons and is therefore a threat against international peace and security.
Lebanon is for nearly all practical purposes controlled by Jihadist Hezbollah, the world’s strongest terrorist organization. Lebanon and Hezbollah are one and the same to the degree that Lebanon has effectively ceased to exist and been replaced by Hezbollahstan. Hezbollah intends to turn Lebanon into a replica of Iran and declare it an Islamist state. Hezbollah has rockets and missiles with chemical warheads which they intend to use to perpetrate chemical massacres in Israeli cities after Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Hezbollah has a projectile stockpile of 150 000 rockets and missiles which are expected to lead to Israeli hospitals becoming overflooded with civilians in the upcoming war against Israel. Treating the tens of thousands civilians wounded by Iranian chemical weapons will likely prove to be beyond Israel’s medical capacity. Lebanon poses a threat against international peace and security and Israel has no choice but to eliminate the Jihadist Hezbollah terrorist organization before it turns into an existential threat against the independent indigenous Jewish nation.
Israel is fully justified in liberating Lebanon and Syria as both countries harbor Jihadist Hezbollah, the strongest terrorist organization in the world. Both countries pose a threat against international peace and security. There are many similarities with the liberations of Afghanistan and Iraq which were also profoundly justified. However, Israel is different from America because Israel has an exit strategy for Lebanon and Syria.
Israel will establish an Aramean Christian state (Aram), annex Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon and the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) will take over most of Syria and annex the remainder of Lebanon. The conflict between Hezbollah and the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), the army of the AANES, will likely continue for many years to come as a Jihadist insurgency but the SDF is skilled and experienced in fighting and defeating Jihadist insurgents as it will likely also battle ISIL for many years to come. Destroying Hezbollah is as justified as destroying ISIL, both dangerous Jihadist terrorist organizations committed to the perpetration of genocide. All border changes will take place through an international agreement on peace between Israel, Syria and Aram (the successor state to Lebanon).
Israel will not remain in the northern Levant for long except in the annexed territories where it will remain forever and Israel has an effective exit strategy in place. Israel will stay in most of Syria and Lebanon for a few weeks at most.
