Total War

I hate to say this, but I think we need to go back to the rules of war that we used to defeat the Nazis and the Japanese. Total war. Civilians in the line of fire? Too bad. How did we get into this corner? Thank the UN.

The UN was suppose to see to the disarming of the militias in Lebanon after the Israelis pulled out. Everybody else disarmed while Hezbollah kept building up a massive military....massive enough to keep even the vaunted Israeli army at bay. If the Israelis had not attacked, how long would it have been before Hezbollah used this military might to conquer all of Lebanon?

One again, the UN has been a force to protect is a failed experiment. If you hold off attacking violent, expansive, fascist forces long enough, they just get tougher and more dangerous. I thought we learned that lesson in the 1930s...obviously not.
