    i really hope this doesnt escalate into something worse, we all know how temperamental both sides can get! in my opinion, the borders should be better marked in order to prevent either side from using the "they crossed into our border" excuse.. Syria's president announces he'll support any retaliation against Israel... great, thats what we need, Hezbollah's main backer wanting to 'help' us. the same man who would take any opportunity to turn Lebanon into another battlefield for their fight with Israel.... to that i say, go to hell! while i'm on the topic of Hezbollah, let me clear something up; we have no power/authority over Hezbollah. They are pretty much a state within a state. They are simply to powerful to ignore, which is why they have a position in the Parliament. Either give them some 'legal' authority, or end up a Muslim nation controlled by Hezbollah (obviously after a very bloody war where the Christians will lose). Please, save the "stand up against them" comments, because they are useless... Hezbollah is such a powerful force that it can easily destroy all of Lebanon and bring it under its rule. Everyone knows that Syria and Iran back Hezbollah, so why not punish them? why is that the Lebanese citizens, who have no control over what Hezbollah does, have to suffer? Hezbollah has clearly shown that they only care for Iranian/Syrian interests, and yet we have to suffer for that? someone please explain the logic!
