Please, let us not forget that this is Hezbolla's war and that they started this mess long ago both with their rockets and their rhetoric. I am sure that the US and any other western country (and, certainly, any Arab country) would not act any differently (and probably in a harsher manner) to direct attacks by Islamo-fascists on its soil. By stopping now, Israel is behaving in Israeli parlance, like a "freier" (a dupe). Hezbollah like Hamas and Al Qaeda must be driven out to the rock from which they came regardless of the fact that they have obtained political status - and any sympathizers of these organizations must be forced to acknowledge the risks of their sympathy on themselves and their families.
