    Do any Lebanese ever ask what this war was all about? Do they ask themselves, or better yet their government: Why did we allow hezzy to start this war against Israel? What was the REAL purpose of hezzy invading Israel, killing and kidnapping their soldiers? Was this war really in our interests? Why did we allow hezzy to remained armed at the border instead of our army taking over s.Leb. back in 2000 after Israel withdrew? After all, that is what an army is for. Why didn't our army try to stop the war once it began? Our army could have saved some or all of the 1000 innocent lives. Instead of Siniora automatically rejecting Israeli peace proposals, wouldn't it be better to make peace with Israel like Egypt, Jodan did and Syria wants to? Who is our real enemy? Israel, or Iran who wants to turn Lebanon into an "Islamic republic" i.e. a mini-Iran, i.e. a puppet of Tehran. I look around and see the daily demonstrations, I know that's what these protests are all about. Well, Lebanese?
