    Someone here said the Israel started this war. I think they are grossly mistaken. Hezbollah clearly started this war. Israel asked for the kidnapped soldiers back, before they went to go get them back. However, Hizbollah refused, and thereby started the war. Had they just admitted their mistake, and returned the kidnapped soldiers, then none if this would have happened. Also, somebody here said that Israel should have made a hostage exchange. That would have been the worst thing that they could have done. Never negotiate with terrorists, and don't make deals with kidnappers. I think that Israel has done the right thing, and all of the deaths are the fault of Hezbollah.
