    With the MSM all over the place on what they think of Israel's response, it would be interesting to see what board members think.

    Poll to follow...

    Ill go further and say they (Israel) should do whatever it takes to defend themselves against terrorists. Just as we should here in the US...

    I'm curious, does no one else care about this issue, or are people shy about stating their position?

    No, Israel's response is a bit over the top. Punishing a whole country the size of Lebanon because they can't stop Hezbollah on the southern border, Hezbollah who has the backing of Iran, Syria and at one time the Soviets is ridiculous.

    What two soldiers were kidnapped? I guess Israel doesn't have any special op teams so they just level the infrastructure lol.

    Almost gives credence to the suicide bombers.........almost.

    Lebanon has allowed Hezbollah free reign and allowed them to fire missiles into Israel.

    Are you forgetting that's what Israel is responding to?

    What would you want to see the U.S. do if Mexico allowed a terrorist group to fire missiles into this country?

    Not see the infrastructure completely destroyed. Guess who is going to clean this mess up? Guess who is going to pay for it? Thats right, you and I after the congress gives Israel another big fat loan to help rebuild Lebanon. Tired of wiping Israel's ass.

    Lebanon has no military to speak of and had no choice with Hezbollah, do a little reading of history.
