Well we all knew that the U.N peace deal would fail...well at least there was a couple days of calm....



BEIRUT, Lebanon - Hezbollah fighters battled Israeli commandos who landed near the militants' stronghold deep inside Lebanon early Saturday, killing one soldier, in the first large-scale violation of the U.N.-brokered cease-fire between the sides

From what I read, the Isralies were trying to stop a shipment of missles from Syria and Iran. I don't blame them since the UN can't/won't do anything about the illegal shipments of missles to hezbolla. It's also not like hezbolla is exactly innocent anyway.

Considering the fact that the cease fire (not peace as you call it - Hezbullah will never agree to peace with Israel) was imposed as part of a UN resolution calling upon a ceasefire, return of the kidmapped soldiers, arms embargo on Hezbullah, disarming of Hezbullah in the south of Lebanon, I think that a full ceasefire is premature considering the facts:

1- Hezbullah is being armed to the teeth by Iran and Syria.
2- Hezbullah is not being disarmed.
3- The kidnapped soldiers have not been returned.

With the above Israel is obligated to act.
If you think this is the first and only Israeli military action in Lebanon since the cease-fire then you are wrong. Clandestine operations are only revieled when something goes wrong. There were many other operations that did not go wrong and therefore did not become an issue.

The UN is inefficient in that it does not adderss and act on the root cause of conflict. In this case the illegal military entity called Hezbullah who is used as a tool not for the good of Lebanon but as a military arm of Iran and Syria. Lebanon did not need the trouble Hezbullah caused. Israel and Lebanon can be in peace and with economic and diplomatic ties that would assist Lebanon as a country more than Hizbullah can assist Lebanon.
Hizbullah just uses the Lebanese people as a tool to its own fanatical agenda.

what about the hizbollah prisoners?

hizbollah offered an equal trade, yours for the same number of ours (paraphrased of course)

israel went in with an intent TOO KILL, already violating the peace agreement.

If we are talking about Hizbullah prisoners from this last round of conflict. They will probably be returned to Lebanon for the 2 soldiers kidnapped.

Normally war is entered with intent to kill and not with intent to play backgammon. If you are referring to the last skirmish in the Bekka Valley, the operation was supposed to be clandestine and without a shot being fired. The units used were intelligence gathering combat units. The fact that they we identified is what turned into a combat situation.

Judah,

Where did you read this?

This is what BBC says:


Israel said it was trying to disrupt weapons supplies from Iran and Syria to Hezbollah, and insisted the truce held.

MDV2,

I do not see how the two contradict each other.
