Tensions Build in Israel

Israeli troops have apparently crossed the border into Lebanon after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers. All of this originally stems from the kidnapping of another Israeli solder near Gaza. Money quote:

    “If the soldiers are not returned we will turn Lebanon’s clock back 20 years,” Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz to Israeli Channel 10.

Have no doubt, that is hardly idle realpolitik.  And before you think to yourself “Self, this is only three soldiers in an area of the world known for instability so I shouldn’t worry about it”, remember this: WWI started when two people got killed.
