I think if countries had to hold chook raffles to get weapons the morons would not know how to organise them and we would all be a lot safer. It was always going to end in negotiations - look at the case of the two journalists in Gaza. New Zealand and the US didn't blow up the rest of Gaza to get them, they negotiated. Three Australians were kidnapped in Iraq - we negotiated. Of course we did help the US blow the country back to the stone ages for no reason. Those right wing US ranters on this forum are not helping Israel one bit. It was on the US's instigation that this was all planned to try and get Iran. When Israelis think about this all from a distance will they think it was worth the enormous cost so the US could rattle the cages against Iran. Iran has never invaded another country but the US has been manipulating her to suit the price of oil for over 50 years. Think about that Israel before you allow the US to use you in this way again. Hezollah are not terrorists.
