    If the agreements relating to ceasefire in Lebanon had been carried out properly ,so that Hezbollah could not re-arm under the noses of the UN,and if they did not have many more rockets than before which have longer range thanks to Iran(and Syria?)there would be no need for Israel to cover itself by means of air reconnaisance. Like Hamas in Gaza the fact that Hezbollah operated within civilian areas and even next to UN posts resulting in casualties when Israel retaliated,shows that they have no regard for any human life, It is about time that both sides in the conflict gave some thought to mister ordinary ,his wife and children,so that we could all lead normal lives. Think what could be done with the money presently spent on arms.I'm sure that especially the people in Gaza and West Bank would have much to gain were it not for their misguided politicians. Just recognise what is there for 61 years (Israel) then the world can move on.
