"Hezbollah's leader said Friday that his group is ready for "open war" with Israel, and as his words were broadcast, guerrillas attacked an Israeli warship that had been firing missiles into southern Beirut. Speaking defiantly in an audiotape on Hezbollah's Al-Manar television less than an hour after missiles struck his headquarters and home, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah addressed Israelis and said they must take responsibility for their actions." from yahoo news

Well those are strong words no to be taken lightly, I guess the issue of how many Palestinians were keep in Israel as prisoners comes to mind and also part of the issue.

While Israel claims that the people that they take are Arrested it also claims that when Palestinians take Israelis prisoners They are kidnapped and a terrorist act.

The entire situation between the two countries is unbelievable.

Hezllbolah has always been at war with Israel and it make it difficult for Israel or other nation get to terms or even have peaceful talks with a groups that are terrorist.

the problem for israel is they are doing this to get rid of those groups. even though the groups are small, they can always cause problems.

its sort of a lose-lose situation unless the thing goes further.

... from yahoo news

and because hezbollah was armed(appox 11,000 missiles) and ready for some type
of retaliation from Israel...
that is why the Israeli soldiers were captured and taken into hezbollah controlled
areas in Lebanon....for future transport? into Syria??

the thing is, Nobody can predict just what incident will spark a larger conflict and turns out that the 2 Israeli soldiers were the spark.

the larger question is ??are the 2 soldiers taken prisoner, the ultimate reason?
or could any incident have been sufficed, because in a larger strategy NOW was the time for a southwestern (of Syria & Iran boundaries) military action ?!

It is not too far fetched to speculate that the US/UK ally Israel is engaging in a
flanking action, and causing Hamas-&-Hezbollah faction (proxy warriors for Syria=Iran) to continue the escalation of conflict with Israel.

Meanwhile, the southeastern Gulf states, UAE, Saudi & others are still getting the anti-missile batteries and other defensive weapony for the anticipated Gulf waters
conflict, waged by Iran aginst the shipping lanes.

with the neocons, their OSP (office of special plans), PNAC, and their larger strategic policy, this Israeli-vs-Hezbolla/Hamas exchange is principally a diversion,
along with feeling out just how much these factions are armed & funded & encouraged by the larger regional powers of Syria & Iran

*example: the UAV attack on the blockade ship could not have been accomplished by hezbolla fighters alone...
this was most likely a select unit trained/from either Syria or Iran...
testing their proficiency under combat conditions, invaluable intel & experience

"Open War", is just what hezbollah set in motion, because the other 'Axis' desired
an open war, for their own needs & ends.

imo, the other axis is US/UK/IS
