This war between Israel and Hezbollah is scary. Things could easily spiral out of control. I know many people claim that Israel is overreacting, what do you expect a country to do when missiles are raining down upon it? And Hezbollah is a group that has had little compunction to save the lives of its own countrymen while carrying out its acts of aggression. The same is true of Hamas. They protest the killing of innocent Arabs, while they themselves kill innocent Arabs all the time. Why on earth would they fire missiles from civilian areas? Obviously Israel will fire back at the same locations, which means that unless Hezbollah evacuates all civilians before it attacks--which it did not--then civilians will die. That does not seem to concern them. And the leader of Iran has said publicly that Israel should be "wiped off the map." And yet people think they are too aggressive in fighting their enemies, which surround them on all sides. There will never be peace in the Middle East until Israel's presence is accepted.
