"israel went out of its way not to fight hizballah.that was when the hizb called israel a paper tiger." - hussain The taunts were meaningless. Olmert was foolish enough to prove it. "israel would never never pursue a needless war" - Hussain It just did. Israel did not have to bomb dairy farms and vegetable stands in northern Lebanon to fight Hizbollah. Instead of pounding Hizbollah in the south, hard, fast and with intent to root out it's short ranged rocket capability, Israel sought to fight a war against all of Lebanon from the safety of the air. The war failed to achieve any of it's goals. Hizbollah was able to keep raining rockets on Israel to the bitter end. It was an unnecessary war with great loss of civilian life, moderate casualties inflicted on Hizbollah and wasted casualties inflicted upon Israelis. Anyone who thinks starting a war because some a-holes call you names is justified needs to think about what human life is worth.
