All Reason and Logic Are Gone...

Winning the fight won't settle who's right.
It's sad, and it's true, and it's on!
When combatants go by the maxim of an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth, then all parties are likely to end up blind and gummy!

Meanwhile, the onlookers gathered around the bull pit are emitting much smoke: It's Iran, trying to deflect attention from their nuclear ambitions! It's Syria, trying to reassert dominance in Lebanon!

If my memory serves me from the dim past recollections of last week, Hezbollah precipitated this all-out conflict by kidnapping an Israeli soldier. Not nice, and certainly provocative. But does it require an all-out shooting match? (Especially if Israel, and America, are now pointing fingers at possible agent provocateurs).

If you know it, then does it make sense to dance to the provocateur's tune?

Only if you like trampling the daisies, I guess.
Gotta plan for the future!
