The power of YouTube

is amazing. Now we can even see what war is like for civilians during this Lebanon-Israel conflict.

And then, watching this, you feel a sense of sickness. What is it about the human race that we do a better job of teaching hate than we do teaching love, respect, and forgiveness? Little children, not knowing better, educated by madrassas, waving flags and celebrating that a terrorist group has just reopened the Lebanon War, which had ended in 2000. One of the ancient lands where Jesus' followers roamed has now become a hotbed for hate, destruction, and is apparently a place of no hope. Perpetual war has characterized the land where the Prince of Peace lived. They all fight in God's name, vowing to prove that one religion's interpretation of God is right, the others wrong, and they'll violate his commandments to show they're right.

The world needs to step in and stop this madness. And we need to show we're serious about the war on terror and help with these other groups, like Hizballah, in getting them run to ground. That means not necessarily killing them, but instead shutting down their resources. They've got medium-range missiles and rudimentary Predators. How in the hell did that happen? Regardless, we have to stop it before the whole region explodes in violence that'll make the world wars seem downright civil.
