when an escalation becomes a war

Regardless of which country engineered the violence,
regardless of which senseless act angered the other nation first,
regardless of how many victims are on either side of the border,
regardless of when war is officially declared,
Israel and Lebanon are in a mess of trouble.

I'm glued to CNN, and I feel like I walked into Hamlet in the middle of the second act. I'm not sure which country is Rosencrantz and which is Gildenstern.

Hopefully they find the right answer for "To be, or not to be?".

Now Lebanon are in. Next Syria?
The terrible thing is that there is no obvious right or wrong here, both sides have genuine grevancies. And apparently, both sides prefer a violent solution.

I was glued to the news last night as well. I want to root for Israel as Lebanon has support from some pretty bad guys, but I think they're biting off more than they can chew.

Sadly, I doubt this will ever be over until one side or the other suffers total defeat and annihilation.

This won't end until enough people are sick and itred of killing.

That's the only way these things end.

I'm not sure it matters anymore. I think we're on the verge of a major war, one that the world may get involved in, and there is no way out. I agree with James.
