So I’ve got a few thoughts/questions on the Israel vs Hezbollah fighting.
Of the reported 202 Lebanese dead 11 are soldiers. I assume the soldiers are Lebanese military, not Hezbollah. Were those soldiers fighting back against Israel? If not, those deaths might better be counted as innocent lives.
Of the remaining 191 dead (202 – 11 soldiers) how many of those were Hezbollah? The Hezbollah dead I have no problems with, they are terrorists and better they die at the hands of Israel then killing innocent Israel citizens in a suicide bombing.
I read on cnn.com today that Hezbollah had escorted cnn journalists through southern Beirut. Showing the destruction Israel had inflicted on civilian apartments. I say this… Those building might not have been Hezbollah military bases, but if members of Hezbollah lived there then those buildings are as good as military barracks. I’m glad they were destroyed. Landlords should know better then letting terrorists live in their buildings. If I lived in an apartment building I wouldn’t want terrorists living there. If he Lebanese government isn’t going to stop Hezbollah and make them feel unwelcome the people of Lebanon can.
Lastly, I think the worst possible thing right now would be a cease fire. If Israel stops now it will only give Hezbollah time to re-arm, plan, and attack again.
