It's not nice to attack an independent country peacefully shooting rockets at you

Today a coworker suddenly informed us all "hey, Israel has attacked Lebanon!". I stared at him incredulously and said that it was the other way around, but I should have asked him where he had read something like that. Some of the stories in the media somehow fail to mention small details, like Qassam- and Katyusha-rockets shot at Israel from Lebanon.

(Of course it might be that it's not the fault of the news source and the coworker is just the kind of person who does not consider a few wee rockets to be an attack, but he seems otherwise quite normal.)

Lebanon's prime minister Fouad Siniora says that Lebanon and its government had nothing to do with the attacks. Heh. Imagine Kokoomus shooting rockets at Russia across the border and Vanhanen saying that the rest of us have nothing to do with that.

And the big question is: since the Party of Allah is financially supported by Iran and Syria, which one of them has ordered this circus - or both, or neither? Hmm, Hamas's big honcho nowadays lives in Syria too.
