#1 The war is now beginning and we may be back.

#2 That's one way to state it. Another way to look at it, is through historical perspective: Reagan's Lebanese adventure created Hezbollah. Bush's Iraq adventure bids fair to make Iran a regional superpower. The big boys in DC play, and we in Israel are stuck with the results.

#3 Wait!!!

The war ended in 2004. We've been fighting terrorists and crazed jihadi nutjobs ever since.

To have a war you have to have an opposing regime...oh wait, I forgot about Iran.

So the war with Iran is over?

#4 Grom, bullshit. Stop blaming American - or would you rather we cut your puny ass completely off the US Taxpayer's money line that keeps you afloat? Were there no US aid, you and all those around you would have been under Arab knives long ago.

#5 Why I'm saying dear Spook is that every time USA becomes active in ME, Israel's (and USA) problems increase. This is, probably, due to the fact that diverse US administrations are advised by people like you.

#6 I dunno - Israel seemed pretty happy to let Syria run Lebanon for a long time.

Hesb'allah kind of grew then.
