Welcome to the 21st millenium war. Pretty soon, there will be no more troops, no more tanks, not even more airplanes - no use for them. Just missiles and Syria, Iran and N. Korea are probably the front runners who understood that a new war age has come. The possibility to implement this cheap and rather easy to achieve destruction capability is the moto behind Hizbullas acts. This war is a test - and since when do Hitlers and Stalins need a rational motive to go to war?
Israel can expect more to come in the near future; unless she demonstrates her nuclear power and, most important, her will to use it, next time may very well be the last one.

Yes, you've got the measure of it just about right. There are so many clichés that one can think of here. 'Damned if they do, damned if they don't' for one. 'Rock and a hard place' for another. What foreign correspondents and other observers seem to have lost sight of, is Israel's vulnerability. It doesn't have any realistsic option in the face of unbridled hostility other than to defend itself and the Hezbollah/Hamas/Syria/Iran axis is by far the biggest threat to the country in years. What I don't understand, is why the commanders in the field and the Israeli Government didn't see it coming!
