Ok so you want me to be abrasive? I can do that too
But since you are a seasoned BW member you deserve some respect and I will assume that I am fully mistaken. Should I find the post that supports my earlier accusation I will just keep it under the rug for now.

Nobody's justifying the Israeli invasion using 9/11. There were plenty of good reasons for Israel to invade and try to eliminate the threat from the north even had 9/11 never happened. In a way it is a good thing that this war happened now. Israel has gotten a preview of what they are up against (they had grown complacent) and hopefully will learn some valuable military lessons for the future. Had Israel waited any longer who knows what type of weapons Hezbollah would have gotten from Iran. I also think hat we have even more reason now to scrutinize the Iranian nuclear program.

The only thing Israel did wrong (and it was a serious mistake) is fail to finish the job of crushing Hezbollah. As a result of this weak UN resolution, which I predict will fail to disarm Hezbollah, another war is inevitable. Hopefully Israel will be better prepared for the next one and will go in full force from the beginning.

I think that it is likely that Olmert's government will fall (as it should). Any Israeli government that is either unwilling or unable to protect its citizens on the northern border from relentless rocket attacks requiring 1,000,000 inhabitants to either evacuate or live in bomb shelters, does not deserve the support of their people.

You are confusing one topic with another.
My response was for Azimuth who quicly pointed out what Hezbollah would do to an Israeli if they catch one in response to the video showing Israeli soldiers breaking a Palestinian's arm with a large rock.

You are just sad because they did not kill all of the Arabs and occupied Lebanon for good. I know you
