Cowardice in the Middle-East

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: Lebanon is not an enemy , Hizballah & Syria are .............

People ask me about the current Mideast War...but my answer is that there's no such thing as "war" between an well-organized,state-sponsored Army such as Israel's and that bunch of fanatics of the Hezbollah. I only recognize wars fought between states and its armies, therefore only when Syria and Iran armed forces join into battle there will be a war.

But this won't happen,because it is much more convenient for both Syria and Iran to use their proxy in order to inflict on Israel casualties and damage on its worldwide public opinion image, while they keep their own countries untouched. I call this sort of behavior as cowardice, since they blatantly ignore Lebanon's sovereignty by ordering their shiite lackeys to provoke Israel from Lebanese land,attracting Israeli reaction to this country. I pity those Lebanese who truly want peace, but they became hostages of Iranian interests.

This whole thing only will be solved by several Israeli airstrikes against Syria's infrastructure in order to prevent further shipment of weapons such as those missiles who are killing people in Northern Israel.
