Briefs thoughts on the Middle East Conflicts

Last week, on the same day that the UN Security Counsel agreed to push ahead with demands that Iran stop its nuclear program, Hezbollah militants crossed the Lebanese border into Israel, killing six Israeli soldiers and kidnapping two others. To send a clear message, Israel has repeatedly bombarded the Lebanese infrastructure, destroying the airport, bridges and highways leading to Syria, as well as power plants and numerous positions considered Hezbollah stronghold.

As much as I hate to see the lives of people with no connection to this dispute suffer from these events, I feel that Israel is doing what needs to be done. This is an attempt by the Iranian government to press their agenda on the world community. Hezbollah is not a Lebanese organization, but an Iranian organization working in Lebanon. Unfortunately, the democratically elected government in Lebanon is virtually powerless against the Hezbollah to stop their attacks.
