Here's a quick quiz for you. Single question, no partial credit. Pass or Fail:
Q. Hezbollah precipitated this crises by kidnapping (and killing) soldiers on Israeli territory because:
1) they want to return the Shebba farms to Lebanon.
2) they wanted to distract Israel from its incursion into Gaza
3) they wanted to initiate a prisoner exchange with Israel
4) they were ordered to do so by Iran who, coincidentally, was facing security council referral over its nuclear ambitions?
Now I realize that their motivation might be multifactorial but what do you really think their strategy was here?
