Israeli War Crimes

If it was any other country our government would have been talking about war crimes and ethnic cleansing. Apparently Israel can pretty much do as it pleases and get away with it. Destroying the civilian infrastructure, killing hundreds of civilians and generally trying to wreck a sovereign state can be justified on the grounds that two of it's soldiers were kidnapped.

For starters Israel's attack will strengthen Hizbullah, not weaken it. It will also probably lead to the collapse of the secular authorities. Perhaps a sectarian civil war is what Israel really wants for Lebanon.

Hizbullah and the Israeli state, they're made for each other.
