Long before Bush and Olmert, the wonderful Labour party of Israel decided to have a war in the future with Lebanon. They pulled out and let the wanton killer of Jews have a place to build and hide arms etc. Sooner or later, a war would be bound to happen, and believe me another one will happen soon. Just like Sharon is the man to thank for all the future Gaza wars.
