How it would be nice, to be wrong about this one...

I usually consider myself as a careful optimist. I believe that you got to be an optimist, at least at some way, otherwise there is no point in living.
Now however, I have a daunting feeling that this war was just a beginning and another one is coming soon, much worse than the one before it.

Israeli government's lack of determination and excessive care to what others would think, has conveyed a wrong message to Palestinians, Hezbollah and their patrons, Syria and Iran. They are now positively sure that military means are best way to deal with Israel. A mistake that would cost us, and them very many lives in the future.

To the dismay of all those who believe that peace is possible only by means of negotiations, it seems that the only way to assure peace, is for Israel to crush all it's neighbors hopes for victory in war with Israel. Unfortunately, the only way to do it, is by a war, as violent as a war can be.

I hate war, but if it is inevitable, then I want to make sure, that this would be the last one in the region, at least for another decade.

Nicely put.
