The mess in Lebanon is just so draining!
What were those Hezbollah idiots thinking (if they were thinking at all) -- crossing an international boundary, kidnapping two citizens (soldiers or no) of another country, and using them to bargain on behalf of another group which has it's own problems?? And, predictably, the less than useful response of Israel -- bombing the capital of another country! Do they think that can go unanswered??
It's like everyone over there is trying to provoke war. It's just mind-numbing. Why does the notion that killing any and everyone is the way to solve our problems continue to hold appeal? Haven't we learned our lessons yet?
Too darn depressing to even read the newspapers.
