The US is telling Israel to tread cautiously here as the Lebanese gov't is not entirely at fault here. The US gov't is also saying that Syria and Iran are the primary backers of Hammas and Hezbollah. Let me repeat. Syria and Iran. I'd say the stage is being set for someone to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities.

Hezbollah hold about 24 seats in a 124 (or was it 128 seat) Lebanese Parliament which is also by law to include 50% Christian representation. They are not the deciding factor in Lebanese policy. They were there representing the 40% population of the Shiite Muslims in the country. They were left armed to serve as a buffer between Israel and Lebanon to keep israeli forces from crossing over the border.
