Lebanon: The Bigger Monster

It's the Israelis. They're basic goal right now is to turn Lebanon into a gigantic prison or refugee camp. And they're doing a good job. They've destroyed much of Lebanon's economic infrastructure and cut Lebanon off from the world.

What did Hezbollah do? They kidnapped two Israeli soldiers while seeking leverage to have their own prisoners released from Israeli jails. It's bad negotiation technique, but there is no reason why the whole country of Lebanon had to pay such an enormous price.

The Israelis remind me of American slaveholders who were glad to whip innocent slaves rather than have one guilty one get away. They're punishing thousands of Lebanese to make sure that Hezbollah gets what it deserves.
