Hundreds of Iranian Troops Fighting in Lebanon
Iran is at war with Israel because Iranian troops are combating the IDF in Lebanon.
International law gives Israel the right to bomb Iran itself.
Can you say, “Opportunity knocking?”
Israel could take out Iran’s nuclear program, and I for one consider that a legitimate military target.

Hundreds of Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel are on the ground in Lebanon fighting Israel, security sources say.
“I have no doubt whatsoever that they are there and operating some of the equipment,” an Arab diplomatic source told The New York Sun yesterday.
Another foreign source, based in Washington, said the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps contingent in Lebanon is based in Beirut and in the Bekaa Valley. He said the troops usually number a few dozen, but that the size of the force increased in connection with the hostilities that have broken out between Israel and Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, over the past week.
The sources said the Iranians had directly operated a radar-guided C-802 missile that Iran acquired from Communist China and that hit an Israeli navy missile boat off the coast of Lebanon on Friday, killing four Israeli seamen.
“This was a direct message to the Israelis that we are fighting the Iranians here,” the Arab diplomatic source said.
