My friend went to visit Lebanon and he said its really bad down there. Everything is getting bombed he said, even a little bridge 3 meters long crossing over a small lake. The good thing is that Israel agreed to suspend airstrikes in its first significant concession, but the U.S. is still not calling for an immediate cease-fire.

What are your thoughts on it?

Why did Israel go into Lebanon anyway? Just becasue 2 soldiers were kidnapped? Tons of countries have soldiers kidnapped but they don't do an all out invasion for it. Were they majors, generals? There is probably another reason why Israel went into Lebanon.

Its because they are trying to fight hebzolla and the terrorists. Anyways I dont think they should kill so many citizens just to fight against terrorism cuz then they are doing the same things as the terrorists. I wont go too deep into this cuz i hate discussing politics on forums. However Israel should cease fire cuz I've got some freinds there. Luckily I got to talk to one of my best freinds who got evacutated by the canadian gov.

i really feel that israel are as much terrorists as hezbollah or a lot of other groups. people complainn about such countries as syria and iran trying to gain niclear capabilities, while israel already has hundreds of nuclear war heads

They didn't trash the airport on the initial raid after the Israeli soldiers were kidnapped by Hezbolah. This site has the time line and links to the news stories

Where is the U.S in the crisis? Is the Bush administration "the peacekeeper" in the world?

Screw war, whether it kills 1 man or a million. I live in Qatar at the moment, and Im sure in a year or 2, it will be attacked by Iran as an American HQ are set in Qatar and apparently the Iranians are pissed at the Qatari because of the support towards Americans. I expect the war in Libanon and Israel will end in the next year, and after Bush has stopped playing world police in that region he'll go back to Iran telling them to disable the uranium enrichment and then Bush attacks Iran, and Iran attacks Qatar and every1 dies so yeh

conclusion: war sucks.

Bush has no advantage to gain from this so he will stall for as long as he can. Pretty sad but thats the way it is with these politicians. His country makes a lot of money off israel and have good relations with them so he didnt want to sacrifice that just to save 100s or 1000s of lives.
