Lebanon has stayed out of this fight for long than would have been expected by any other nation. Personally, even thou Israel might have the bigger
fire power, I think they have been lucky in this conflict (so far) and previous conflicts in having Lebanons army stay out.
If this assault by Israel had only been limited to Hezbollah fighters and bunkers and Hezbollah positions, I dont think Lebanon would cared, but from
day one of this current conflict, Israel has taken out the Lebanese Airport, their power supply, their fuel depots and controlled their
ports....effectively, they have layed siege to Lebanon; and that is wrong and going too far. I have on many other posts vehemently argued the fact
that two wrongs dont make a right, but Israel, allways trying to act like they are doing this in self defence, well then, how is taking out the
civilian installations of Lebanon going to affect Hezbollah? I'm not saying that everything Hezbollah has done is right, to tell you the truth,
everything Hezbollah has done against Israel is wrong, but the issue as it stands NOW, is not against Hezbollah, the tide of war has turned from
Hezbollah to laying siege to Lebanon and that is Israels doing and that is illegal and wrong.
This war will escalate much more than previous conflicts have. Read the following article to see the realistic possibilities of how much crap we could
all find ourselves in -
This situation is like having a family bbq - and your 2nd uncle who gets pissed at every function grabs the breasts of your friends wife who is there
for the first time. Your friend punches your uncle and a fight starts. You sit back for now knowing that your uncle started it all and should get what
he deserves. But your uncle is now unconcious on the floor, and your cousin has been taken out, and this bloke is started fights with everyone else in
your family for revenge. Well, enough is enough and this is where I step in...big time!
Think about it, I understand there alot of poeple for Israel based on either their political affiliation, religious affiliation, or other, but
sometimes you have to look at it this way, even if its your best friend when he's stuffed up, hes stuffed up and deserves to be punished. This is
where Israel stands now.....
