Israeli "operation" expands into Lebanon


The Hezbollah militant group captured two Israeli soldiers during clashes along the Lebanese border on Wednesday, triggering an Israeli assault with warplanes, tanks and gunboats as Israeli troops crossed the frontier to hunt for the captives.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called the guerrilla attack "an act of war" and warned that Hezbollah would pay a "heavy price" for its actions.
Israeli warplanes struck two bridges over the Litani River deep in southern Lebanon, killing two civilians on the main north-south highway between the port cities of Tyre and Sidon, Lebanese security officials said. The pan-Arab satellite TV al-Arabiya station said that at least seven Israeli soldiers were killed in the fighting, and that several more were wounded.
The Israeli army confirmed casualties among the soldiers, but did not comment on the reports of possible deaths.

Im baffled by the reaction. Armies do not engage in full scale conflict because of kidnappings....POWs are taken all the time...it is a realistic part of conflict. Israel should be prepared to lose many more soldiers in this long fight if they continue to fight on several fronts. It isn't enought that Iraq is engulfed in Flames....but now we have gaza and lebannon erupting as well. With Iran building its nuclear capabilities....its seems as though the middle east will errupt.

What does this mean for all of us? Higher Gas prices......Middle Eastern Canadians will lose family back home.....instant geopolitical instability around the world.....massive recruitment of terrorists around the world...etc etc

I agree - if Israel takes out Lebanese, Egyptian, and/ or Syrian leadership (as they already threatened too) - the latter countries will fall into chaos in which Islamic radicals will grab a foothold - establishing Muslim terrorist breeding ground like Somalia
