Sorry I didn't have time to post here today- but I usually have something I'd like to share with interested readers. Today it's this excellent article from a former Indian Government official on Israel's position vis a vis Hezbullah and the rest. He's both urgent in tone and knows whereof he speaks. Read it here. Taste:

"Israel is a very small country with a very small population. It has no military depth. It has to follow a policy of instant and forceful retaliation against terrorists and States such as Iran and Syria using terrorism as a weapon to make its population bleed. Israel has to retaliate instantly or perish. This has to be kept in mind while judging Israel's action in taking its fight against terrorism to the Lebanese territory. Israel had no other option, but to do what it has done."
