If Israel really wanted peace it should have contacted the countries political Leaaders wwho aare not all Hezbollah supporters. The majority are not. And International Laws require that Israel should have contacted Lebanon and not just blasted it. And Israel targeted places that did not have Hezbollah connections, like the bottle company. Now ONLY NOW Israel wants to talk to Lebanons Leader and SENIORA is refusing, Whats to talk about now after you blasted his country to hell.Israel wants peace and diplomatic relations, I dont think so I think Israel wants a big war and unfortunately I think here we all go. Ironic that all this in the name of religions and instigated in the Holy Land.

1. Israel not only contacted Lebanon, they attempted
to negotiate the release of abducted soldiers
thru the Egyptians.
2. Why should Israel be required to notify Lebanon
(which they did) at all given that Hezbollah did
not announce they were going to kill Israeli
soldiers and abduct 2 of them? Hmmmm?
3. Israel doesn't want a big war ... get it? They
would simply like to be left alone and trust that
their neighbors do not wish to annihilate them.
That begins with Lebanon, Iran, etc. recognizing
Israel's right to exist and to enjoy national
security. If you have a problem with that, your
calls for peace are phony blabber.

Blabber it is bill, because I know its going to get worse and I also know that America Uk Israel Europe wont lose and i really would like to see Lebanon saved because I know that alot of Lebanese are wanting peace too. I just want Lebanon to grab the damned life vest. and you know as well as I do that push come to shove Leaaders make the final decisions
for their people. I am just nervous for Lebanon

why did Israel have to use those dirty bombs that explode long after the fact? Children willcome across those for years to come. how can Lebanon PM Seniora come to the peace table, whats to discuss?

The truth of the matter is that Lebanon controls its
own future, not any of the countries you mention in
your post. Lebanon's ability to harness the energy
of Hezbollah into rebuilding its infrastruture and
developing a self sufficient economy, setting aside
its preoccupation with the destruction of Israel, is
the key to its survival.
In a very real sense Lebanon's future is not pre-
dicated on what America, Israel, the U.K. or anyone
in the West does .... its real enemies are Iran and
Syria. If Syria reasserts itself in Lebanon or if
Iran exerts more influence over Hezbollah than the
peace-seeking Lebanese people, the long term future
of Lebanon is a dark one because either ocuntry will
use Lebanon as a surrogate for its own agenda.
So please, do not wring your hands over what the
U.S. or Israel does, for they would prefer a
peaceful resolution to what stands in the way of
genuine peace. Iran, however, sees these past
couple of months as a mere prelude to a greater,
final conflict resulting in the destruction of
It is really that simple, so place your concerns
on the intentions of Iran and Syria and trust that
Israel will respond only if further provoked because
Lebanon succumbs to Iran's continuing influence
over Hezbollah as its surrogate war machine.

Bill,I know you are right and eloquently stated. Iran and Syria dont stand a chance against America and Israel.
My fear is they dont know that. and thus Lebanon will
fall if it chooses to gain its independence thru Syria
Personally I think the world underestimates the military force of America. Its been in the making since REAGAN at full force. Iran is playing a dangerous game with its peoples lives and Syria I still believe is insignificant, it could be Irans change purse.but thats all.
I worry for LEB because it will fall if it does not
stay independant of Iran and Syria. I tend to believe that America is as Japan once put it..."a sleeping giant"

I saw Bill already answered you. I have short deadlines at work, so I don't have much time to spend here these days.
1. Lebanon had time since 2000 to prove what it can do about HEZ. It didn't.
2. If Israel didn't respond to this kidnap, it would have certainly only encourage more provokations. The mistake was that Israel didn't do it already at 2000 when the HEZ kidnapped and killed 3 soldiers, with the UN looking the other way (except the UN camera looked to the right way).
3. If you are certain you could do better, then be all means start doing it now, cause the way it seems, the next event is only a matter of time.
