Mimus Pauley, in comments below, says about Lebanon: "I have no idea who won. All I know is that the people of Lebanon lost..."
That, indeed, is the crux of the thing. Frankly, I could care less who "won". Those fighting on either side are all criminals, in my opinion, and if I could, I'd put them all in a cage and let them fight it out mano a mano where nobody else can get hurt. The real losers are those who did nothing, who lost all their possessions or even their lives for no good reason that I can see, for an objective which has not been attained and indeed probably is unattainable by either side. While the bastards on either side make grandious statements, the vast majority, who just want to live in peace, get plastered.
In this particular war of criminals against criminals, the Lebanese people got plastered by one particular group of criminals to the tune of over a thousand dead and $8.5 billion dollars worth of damage. Undoubtedly if the particular group of criminals in southern Lebanon had possessed the capability, the Israeli people would have also gotten plastered -- said criminals certainly had the desire, if not the capability, and did manage to accidentally kill a few people while trying. In the end, when criminals fight, the only winners are criminals, and the real losers are the innocents all around.

It's time for the PEOPLES of the world to stand up and say enough! No more war!
You would think that someone who went to YALE for gosh sakes would have the intelligence to know that the world is unconquerable, and that the US will loose it's Democracy at home if it indulges in Empire abroad.
I mean, I never got past community college, and even I can see that!

I've decided to start my own "side." If you willingly and consciously drop bombs of civilian men, women, and children because it advances your petty little agenda, then the hell with you. I didn't declare war on Iraq. I didn't advocate torturing people at Abu Ghraib. I'm not calling for bombing Iran. And I didn't give Israel a green light to bomb the Lebanese because some assholes in Hezbollah felt like starting a rash of crap, either.
Bush & Co. find themselves on trial at the ICC for war crimes? Boo-friggin'-hoo!
Saddam Hussein gets hung for being a murderous thug? Boo-friggin'-hoo!
Hezbollah leaders go on trial for blowing up Israeli civilians? Boo-friggin'-hoo!
Israeli leaders go on trial for doing the same to the Lebanese? Boo-friggin'-hoo!
Osama bin Laden gets thrown in a dungeon and dies of kidney failure the next day? Boo-friggin'-hoo!
All these neo-con chickenhawks get lumped in with Bush & Co. for agitating for war crimes against people whose "terrorist activities" are confined to practicing Islam while brown wind up sharing prison cells with big, fat, apostate Arabs named "Salami Boloni"? BOO, FRIGGIN', HOOOOOO!
That's all I have to say. If I go on, I'll get mad...
