Assuming it is a naval surface and subsurface based attack to include the use of "air breathers" from both the 6th and 5th fleet, the go order would likely require 3-4 hours prior to TOT. Plain language the Pres. can work whatever national power tools he wants but once he tells the boys to launch the tomahawks, his window is down to a couple of hours. A good recent reference was Libya and our " leading from behind" strategy with only providing "support" to our NATO pals. On day one, the Brits fired 2 TLAMs to our 125, but were just "supporting." We are the only people on this planet that can bring the rain with relative impunity.

I'm going to defend Rausch's comment here, yes the 5 might be a small a number but honestly it is correct:

1)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogra...ion_statistics

It is estimated that Christians are still %40 of lebanon's population

2) http://www.lstatic.org/PDF/demographenglish.pdf

In 1932, 53% were Christians



Right now in 2013, Lebanon is the ONLY middle eastern country that has 40% Christians.

They are the last....this is a CURRENT problem, not an old one.

In regards to tourism:


Quote:
The tourism industry in Lebanon has been historically important to the local economy and remains to this day to be a major source of revenue for Lebanon.
Quote:
Significant private investment is currently being made in the modernization and expansion of this sector and international hotel companies have returned to Lebanon. Casino du Liban, which historically constituted a major tourist destination, reopened in 1996. Lebanon is the only country in the Arab world that offers skiing and related winter sports activities. The largest ski resort in the country has been expanded and modernized. The Government believes that, because of the return of peace and stability to the country and with the development of the necessary infrastructure, tourism will again contribute significantly to Lebanon's economy. Lebanon's tourism industry also relies on the large number of Lebanese living abroad, who return regularly to the country during the summer season.[4]
So , I believe Rausch is correct, that these problems are Post-1996 and CURRENT.....


The Travel Advisory currently has to do with the Spillover from the war in syria:


Quote:
The U.S. Embassy in Beirut on Friday reminded U.S. citizens to “avoid all travel to Lebanon due to safety and security concerns,” urging those in the country to “exercise security awareness," after at least 40 people were killed and more than 500 wounded in twin bombings that rocked mosques in Tripoli.
"Although there is no indication that U.S. citizens or interests were targets of those behind these attacks, there is a possibility of public demonstrations in response," the embassy said on its website in a security alert titled “Increase in Sectarian Violence in Lebanon.”
This is not an "old" article...This is from 2 days ago.


Evidence the tourism industry had started to recover:



#of International Tourists arriving in Lebanon and staying at least one night



And then take a look at the Beirut property value chart:



See where the bottom falls out?

Thats not more than 5 years ago.........and the peak coincides with the peak of the tourism industry as well....

My son just finished his MOS and got his duty station in Hawaii. I was really hoping we'd avoid this shit, but it is what it is. Lord, I pray we don't send men and women to fight there. Bad enough to lob missiles in, but DON'T commit troops...

...shit...

Imagine the outrage if any American said this. The screams of racism would be amazing. Do you think this russian was referring to anyone but Obama?

http://en.ria.ru/russia/20130827/182...d-Grenade.html

MOSCOW, August 27 (RIA Novosti) – A firebrand Russian nationalist-turned-senior official said Tuesday that the West was acting in the Islamic world like a “monkey with a hand grenade.”

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s former envoy to NATO, did not elaborate on his comparison, made on his Russian-language Twitter page.

But Rogozin, who used to head a popular nationalist political party and now oversees Russia’s military industrial complex, has previously lambasted on Twitter the alleged plans of “Anglo-Saxons” to attack Syrian government forces.

The United States may launch missile strikes against the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad as early as Thursday, NBC reported Tuesday.

Official Washington, as well as Britain, France and Turkey, is considering an attack on Assad’s forces over allegations – which Russia calls unproven – that the Syrian government, locked in a fight against a domestic insurgency since 2011, used chemical weapons against civilians in rebel-controlled areas.
