What made this war unavoidable?

What made this war unavoidable? Why the whole internaltional community has given the green light to Israel to destroy Lebanon, not even trying to stop this war, only trying to limit the damages, dealing with it as if it was a natural disaster like a tsunami. One thing is true, this war is way beyond Lebanon, it's a regional one, however, internally, we could have done something to avoid it. The problem was that the different Lebanese partis were unaible to reach a consensus pertaining to many issues in Lebanon, which is natural since we have a democratic regime. However, if we were united from the inside, we would have faced in a better way the external threats jeopardizing our recent indepence and stability. What we have to do now is to achieve what we failed to do before july 12, facing this critical period together.

Wise words! But how do they translate into actionable items? And how do you reconcile democracy with 2 separate armies?

Daryl Bradford Smith interviews Christopher Jon
Bjerknes. The talk is about Israeli tactics and plans
to start the WW3, the plans which have parallels in
the Bible, in the 20th century history and in the
Zionists own words:


Christopher Jon Bjerknes is a historian of science who
has written a 2,800+ page book "The Manufacture and
Sale of Saint Einstein":

The book illustrates how
Einstein was made into a 20th century icon by the
Zionist media.

In a dysfunctional state war is never avoidable. Actually a dysfunctional state thrives on conflict and invites war. Only a strong central government that does not allow anyone to exist outside and above the law can hope to avoid conflict.

At this point even in supposed democracies people are powerless to overrule the rulers. Here in the US many people, and especially bloggers that I know of are thoroughly disgusted and deeply disturbed at the turn of events. Thanks for posting the list of peace rallies, I re-posted it to spread the word. This Bush administration, but even Clinton administration has been guilty of many things, going to war(s) is 'just' one of them..

This war is Iran's and Syria's fault. They have used Hezbollah to start a war with Israel. Lebanon has contributed to its own demise by allowing a rogue military to operate from its country. Either Hezbollah represents the country of Lebanon or it doesnt. If it does than Lebanon declared war on Israel. If it doesnt than it was reckless in allowing it operate unabated thus putting the whole country at risk. Lebanon either accepts the war it started or needs to call it a day on Hezbollah. The days of sitting on the fence and claiming "no responsibility for Hezbollah" have ended. Lebanon needs to pick a side and commit.
