So much for peace in the Middle East

As I got ready this morning, I was thinking about all of the military actions going on between Israel, Palestine, and Lebanon. Without being willing to blindly support Israel in every action, in this case, at least, it seems like they've been aggravated beyond all reason. Kinda reminded me of a cornered animal being poked with sticks. At some point, that animal is going to come out of the corner and inflict some serious damage.

Israel isn't asking for much. Just give them their soldiers back, quit shooting at them, and take the guns away from Hezbollah. Doesn't seem unreasonble. You've gotta feel bad for the Lebanese people, though. It stinks for the Lebanese to be the ones getting blown up when it sounds Syria and Iran are the ones bankrolling Hezbollah.

It's so sad. There's so much suffering going on.
