Lebanon was not invaded because two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped. That was just the tinder, and to think otherwise is unbelievably simple-minded. What's happening in Lebanon has everything to do with a slow burning war being fought against Islamic Fundamentalism that will probably not be decided in the next twenty five years, let alone few weeks. This is Syria not getting their hands out of Lebanon. This is Hezbollah getting weapons from Iran. This is Iran taking advantage of Iraq. This is 100 years of mind poisoning that has dehumanized Jews and the West to the Arab street. This is decades of economic and political deprivation that has turned the Arab street into a bunch of irrational lunatics, filled with hatred and self pity. This is 75 years of using the State of Israel as scapegoats for an entire society's ills. This is war, and probably a world war and won't end until people start caring about each other and start thinking for themselves.
