ClearCut - 6 Arming Hezbollah will increase the chances of war in Lebanon, thats how it always is in warfare and if Hezbollah feel confident or want a war for political reasons Israel will give it to them. The harder Hezbollah fight then the harder Israel fight & Israel has alot more firepower than Hezbollah could ever fantasize about having Chris - 7 The best defense is a good offense and Israel will pre empt to stop its enemies getting advanced weapons which may one day be used against Israel if a war broke out. Pre emptive strikes are Israels speciality -- 1956, 1967,1981 Chris Litnthwaite - 11 Israel never sold these weapons to Lebanon. The right Israel has to object to a country getting given defensive weapons is if it feels threatened a result. Israel is objecting to then transfer of the SA-2 to the terror group. If Israel is in a position of strengh and able to dictate the rules then it will. The real world isn't based whats fair its based on what you can get away with.
