"America will continue the fight for freedom until no vestige of resistance remains"

That's not a promise, it's a threat. Matter of fact, it's a threat to the whole world. When will the USA, which claims the right to launch pre-emptive wars on countries that have no WMD, also claim the right to make a unilateral nuclear first strike on a non-nuclear country? It has already strongly suggested that it has the right to do so! When it does, the face of the aggressor will be fully revealed to the whole world, and we will be on the verge of a world conflict in which the USA will find itself virtually without allies.

No one will be safe anywhere in such a conflict."

So since Truman was the one that gave us that little tidbit, does that mean that his vision of no Nazi's, no imperialistic Japanese and no Italian Fascist was wrong? FDR was also wrong? Do you think that we should have let the Nazi's exterminate the jews?

Troll is right. You can't negotiate with the Islamic Fundamentalist because of their heartfelt feeling of Israel must be wiped from the face of the earth. Just as we couldn't negotiate with Hitler, Hirohito or Mussolini. Hell....we tried to get along with them but to no avail....they wanted war. That is exactly what we gave them. The same thing is happening now with the Islamic fundamentalist.

We gave peace a chance....

They didn't want it.

So we're giving them what they do want.

Now they are crying to the UN and winning the hearts of the left in the world.

Don't forget. Israel has been very patient over the last few years. They've endured suicide bombing after suicide bombing. They still came to the table ready to talk time after time after time.

The kidnapping of their soldiers by Hamas and Hezbollah was the straw that broke the camel's back. They can't wait anymore. They know that their enemies don't want peace. Why waste anymore time?

They're taking care of the problem. They are trying to surround Hezbollah. Civilians in Lebanon are in the way. Some will get killed. Hezbollah is hiding missiles and arms in civilian's homes. People that support Hezbollah. This is no different than what Saddam did by hiding and storing weapons in schools and mosques and even in private homes.

This is where the message of "either you stand with the rest of the world or you stand with the terrorists" phrase comes into play.
And yes there are innocent civilians being killed. It's tragic. If there is any way it could be avoided then it should. But it's happening on both sides. Why are people just hearing about what's happening in Lebanon and not what's happening in Haifa with Hesbollah aiming and firing rockets indiscriminately into the city? Let's remember all of the innocent civilians that were killed whenever suicide bombers set off their payloads in crowded restaurants and public trans. buses. Does that deserve any condemnation? You wouldn't think so by reading the above posts.

Peace always deserves a chance.

But when one party doesn't want it, the only game you can't afford to play is the waiting game.
