    Both are disproportionate, Michigan. The PROPORTIONATE response from Israel to a cross-border ambush and kidnapping is a hot pursuit by the IDF over the border (not too successful, I hear). If that failed (and it did) then there is no PURELY MILITARY response left; the correct response would have been a mixture of limited military efforts and intense diplomatic efforts. Israel should have attacked a few Hezbollah basses, ambushed a few Hezbollah patrols in an attempt to take their own hostages, and that's about it for the MILITARY options. Israel should also have admitted to itself that Hezbollah caught her napping, and Olmert should have gritted his teeth and DONE THE DAMN PRISONER EXCHANGE. Revenge could then be left for later. Coz, let's face it Michigan, what *did* Olmert achieve? Over a 1,000 dead Lebanese. Over a 100 dead Israelis The IDF's reputation shot to pieces AND NO PRISONERS RETURNED That's just a brilliant return, isn't it?
