BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Israeli Defense Minister, Naftali Bennett, warned Iran this morning that their ongoing participation in the Syrian conflict will resemble the U.S.’ ten-year-long war in Vietnam (1965-1975).

Bennett said at a conference held today in Jerusalem that what Iran is doing in Syria and Lebanon is pushing Israel to turn Syria into “your Vietnam.”

The Israeli newspaper “Maariv” quoted Naftali Bennett , the new Israeli Minister of Defense, as saying that Iran is working to set fire to its country, claiming that it is stationed in Lebanon, and is working to establish bases in Syria and the Gaza Strip, and that Israel will launch a strong defensive operation for any attack.

Bennett claimed that Syria would turn into a new “Vietnam” for Iran, if the Iranians insisted on not leaving Syria, adding that his country would do so by any means.

The Israeli Minister of Defense revealed that his country will face major threats in the next year, 2020, and that the Israeli Armed Forces are ready for any operations, whether from Syria, Lebanon or the Gaza Strip. He called on Israel, at the same time, to move away from personal interests, and to tip the balance of his country over any other interests.

Israel is the size of Vermont. It can be overrun by Hezbollah alone, and Israel will have no time to launch nukes at targets that they have to determine.

Except that US didn’t lost a single battle in Vietnam and pulled out when they obtained what they wanted from Mao… It’s a very bad comparison… Bennett should have pointed the Battle of Gaugamela in 331 BC, in which Alexander the Great annihilated a much larger Persian army, thus ultimately conquering the Middle-east. According to the Hague Convention, if you use a foreign militia to attack a country, you’ve de facto declared war on this country. It’s EXACTLY what the Iranian regime does through Hezbullshit, PIJ or Hamas, thus, Israel doesn’t needs to declare war on Iran : Iran and… Read more »

Iran has already been through worse than the Vietnam War when they were subjected to Saddam Hussein’s imposed Iran-Iraq War. This dumb guy, by invoking the Vietnam War, has let it slip that he views Iran as powerful as the United States. These are statements that are the result of fear.
