As time goes on, I find things like this to be less and less of a surprise. As Israel is pounding Hamas into the ground in Gaza, Lebanon-stationed Hezbollah members took advantage of the "distraction" and kidnapped two Israeli soldiers.
Unfortunately for Lebanon, Israel wasn't taking this lying down. Turns out they can fight on two fronts.
I can't offer much in the way of analysis of the situation (Captain Ed is much better for such things), but I do have a one thought. I hear a lot of analysis about why muslims and Middle Eastern countries react to Israel the way they do. As many of these people state themselves, they have the ultimate goal of wiping Israel off the map. If nothing else, let's not forget that when we see things such as this in the news.
