    The people of Israel should be blaming themselves for putting these war-mongering fools in power in the first place. Israelis who are still clinging to the falsehood that what ever Israel wants it can just take got a wake up call in Lebanon from a loose knit militia formed to defend Lebanon from Israel's previous escapade. As Israelis found out, modern infantry weapons turn million dollar tanks into scrap and can take out ships lingering off shore with ease and are defining a new era in the region. No longer can Israelis continue to believe that their cities will remain unscathed during when modern missiles can target them from hundreds of not thousands of miles away. Israeli truly need to discard that old war based philosophy along with its current leaders and elect to office those who will seek peace and not war. It will not be easy, but the opportunity is there for leaders who are experienced in and willing to engage in diplomacy to take Israel to the next level.... Peace!!
