    Retaliatory violence and defensive violence is not considered aggression, because it is a responsive action. Only the destruction of the Iraqi Nuke project fits this description, and most of the Middle East supported (privately) this action. Israel attacked Lebanon in 1982 after hundreds of Katusha attacks on Kiryat Shemone and other northern towns. Israel attacked the headquarters of PLO force 17 in Tunisia after they claimed credit for mudering three Israeli civilians in a yacht of Cypress. Israel attacked the West Back after hundreds of Israeli civilians were killed and wounded in suicide bomber attacks. Israel atttacked Lebanon after a cross border raid in which three Israel soldiers were kidnapped (and subsequently died) and Israeli civilians were shelled to provide cover for the action. Israel attacked Gaza in 2008 after more than 8000 missiles had been fired at Israeli civilians.
