Serious Stuff.

The war between Israel and the conglomeration of Hamas and Hezbollah is very serious. Anyone who thinks Lebanon is in any position to offer a cease fire is silly. If Lebanon can enforce a cease fire now why didn't it deliver on its treaty obligations back in 2000?

However, I believe Lebanon (itself, not Lebanon in the grip of Syria) is willing to stop the fighting from its land, but unable to. It is Hezbollah acting on its own or more accurately the behest of Iran and Syria with Iran being the main instigator.

Iran's language has been very bellicose of the last couple of years and all the pointy head leftoids have been telling us all along President Ahmednuttyjihad never meant what he is saying. Hah. Hitler gave us plenty of notice what he was about and what his intentions were, still we did not listen.

Many say Israel's response is disproportionate. However, recall the old saying "the straw that broke the camel's back" yes the kidnapping of the soldiers are two straws but enough straws were piled on the camels back. Recall Israel in good faith withdrew from Lebanon and Gaza and those on the other side of the border never had any intentions of following through on their promises.

This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
