There will never be peace in the middle east, so everyone should just get used to that notion.
Israel has the right to retaliate against states who use terror groups to do their bidding, and I'm confident they will. I saw nothing about stone age, but they will get what they deserve for continuing these shenanigans.
Iran has a cowardly government, in fact only Saddam wasn't a coward when it came to war, he might have been a little crazy, but he definitely wasn't a coward.
saddam wasnt a coward?
is that why he was hiding in his tiny bunker underground?
iran is the only country that stands against the evil zionist that cage other humans and kill them...

Just saw this:
It says Israel suspects that Hezbollah bought missiles from Syria and Hezbollah says it is none of Israel's business whether they did or did not..short article from Oklahoma paper.
It sounds like Israel is very jumpy; and where does Hezbollah get money to buy arms like that, and how do they get into Gaza??? Or does Israel think Hezbollah has the missiles stashed in Syria?
Over the past six years, Iranian funding for Hezbollah has consistently risen. In 2002, Iranian aid to Hezbollah was estimated at $60-100 million per year. After the 2006 war, Iranian aid was estimated between $200-300 million per year, with additional money for reconstruction. And in January 2008, Walid Phares of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies claimed that sometime in 2008 Iran increased its annual aid to Hezbollah from approximately $300 million to slightly less than $1 billion.

The next week will tell whether or not anything will happen. Any more time and the readiness of the forces involved with start to diminish, then things will settle down into a middle east cold war.
For the reasons mentioned above, I personally believe this cannot be(come) a Cold War. During the Cold War, both nations knew how great the consequences would be of a war. The tiny piece of land called Israel is cornered and feels more threatened by the day. We are waiting for the point at which Israel decides that a war is the only option left open to deal with this threat.
