No one can possibly call it a proportional response. Its impossible. Lets compare:

Two soldiers hostage. (by the way Hezbollah wasnt going to kill them they were going to free impisoned people in Israel in a deal)


A couple thousand dead Lebanese (most innocent men, women, and children)

Lets see, if one person can tell me that it is right to kill 3000 civilians in response to the CAPTURE (not murder, capture) of TWO men, then they are pretty much heartless.
