After two days, Israel is still bombing the crap out of Lebanon and the Lebanese people are caught in the middle. Israel seems determined to destroy the Hezbollah leaders at all costs and wants the Lebanese government to cooperate. They have already destroyed the Beirut Airport as well as most of the major highway between Beirut and the Syrian capital of Damascus. When the violence will end is unclear since both the Lebanese and the Israeli governments have no plans to back down. Stay tuned.

  1. I’m sick of hearing US officials say that world leaders agree the destruction in Lebanon was brought on by Hezbolla. Hezbolla is not an independent nation. Lebanon is not synonymous with Hezbolla and Israel has no right wage war on the rest of the country.

    If the Arian Nation kidnapped 2 Israeli tourists visiting the U.S., no one would say that Israel was justified to bomb the U.S.
    As far as I can tell, all Israel is doing is conducting an aggressive campaign to recruit a new generation of Hezbolla members.

  2. I totally disagree. The Arian Nation doesn’t hold any seats in congress, but Hezbollah holds 23 of 128 seats in the Lebanese Parliament. As such, they are a political movement and not merely a fringe fanatical group like the Arian Nation in the United States.

    Although I don’t condone Israel’s actions against Lebanon, I don’t think your example is valid. I can understand how the line between Hezbollah and the Lebanese government can be blurred, even if the Lebanese people are innocent bystanders in this whole mess.

  3. To say the members of the Arian Nation don’t hold seats in Congress is very incorrect. You obviously don’t know the people you are voting for. I totally agree with the first comment and the US needs to step in, like they always do, and stop the Israelis from further attacking innocent people and it’s the Israelis that are acting like radicals, not the Lebonese Christians, which are the ones that are getting killed.
