A Hezbollah boss recently quoted:
“The truth is _ let me say this clearly _ we didn’t even expect (this) response…. that (Israel) would exploit this operation for this big war against us,” said Komati.
He said Hezbollah had expected “the usual, limited response” from Israel to the July 12 cross-border raid, in which three Israelis were killed.
I think that shows that this is hardly a disproportionate response.
Insanity, it is said, is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. The best way to stop Hezbollah from kidnapping again clearly isn’t negotiation, so why not try obliteration instead?
Also, it should be pointed out that while the 2 kidnappings are certaintly being touted, this is the first time I’ve seen that there were 3 Israelis killed in the same raid. Does that mean I’m not paying good enough attention, or is this fact just being underreported to make Israel’s response look more disproportionate? I’m not a big “liberal media bias” guy (anymore), but all the reports I’ve seen haven’t really mentioned that Hezbollah was first to draw blood in this particular conflict.
