continues to reverberate throughout the region. When Israel tried to flatten Lebanon threatening the Lebanese military if they interfered in Israel's bombing exercises, what did you expect the Lebanese to do? They realised that Syria and Iran were the only countries willing and able to give Lebanon the weapons and equipment and technical know how to defend themselves the next time Israel invaded their country. Israel really is it's own worse enemy, if it thought bombing Lebanon back to the stone age would make Lebanon's civilians and their politicians friends with Israel and enemies with Israel's enemies. Just goes to show just how much Israeli politicians of whatever hue are out of touch with reality.
