Setting a high bar for any international force serves Israel's goal of continuing the malicious and excessive bombardment of Lebanon's infrastructure and--all too often--people.
Americans who see this war as someone else'es fight might ponder that much of the destruction of killing is being done with U.S. supplied weapons, often paid for with U.S. tax dollars. Americans may not pay much attention to that, but I can guarantee ever school girl in the Middle East knows. Don't act so stunned when you discover that "they" hate our country, and not least our government.
