Hey Mr. cultured European, have you ever been to the U.S? Did you bother to talk to any average citizens there? I am very disturbed by my govts choices on many things, esp the Middle East, but a lot of comments here about America is based on what people see and read in the media. Stop blaming the US for Israeli military actions in the Middle East. We have created our own mess in Iraq---we don't need another one. For the record, I don't think most sane people expect Israel to sit back and be terrorized by Hizbollah or any other terrorist group. Though I am deeply saddened by the loss of life that is taking place. I think all of us would be make better use of our time by trying to understand why these conflicts occur rather than getting only a fraction of the facts, then pointing the finger at someone else.
