    With midterms just around the corner how many congressmen are going to stand up and say despite the fact Israeli soldiers were fired in their own territory without provocation probably with an American made M16 and we should continue to provide arms to Lebanon? Democrats & Republicans they are both going to agree to at the very least suspend all military aid to Lebanon. It doesn't matter if Obama wants to continue to give the military aid Congress makes the decisions like that and he will just have to accept it. If the US stops weapons aid then if Israel makes enough noise in the short - medium term at least France will probably agree to Israels demands. Obama should also be careful if he tries to hold Israel back if there is any more trouble. In 2012 his opponents in the pro Israel camp will say this president allowed Lebanon to fire on Israel and you refused to let Israel fight back ... Israel is our ally but Obama watched our ally be fired on and he refused to let them fight back how can you vote for a man like that. when Israeli soldiers are fired on and a soldier dies unprovoked and not in Lebanese territory and probably with an American made M16 there is no way anybody wants to be the congressman to stand up and say I vote we give more weapons to Lebanon. I think its safe to say that by the end of this month Congress will vote to end all military aid to Lebanon.
