Thank you Senator, Take a Hike Vatican

Senator McCain told CNN this morning that Israel's response was not disproportionate. Israel's response is similar to what the US would have done. Hat Tip: JPost
(trying to find the CNN transcript).

I for one will be sending Senator McCain a thank you email for his support. You can do so as well by filling out the form located at:

In other news, our Roman Catholic friends chastised Israel today. "[T]he Holy See deplores right now the attack on Lebanon, a free and sovereign nation, and assures its closeness to these people who already have suffered so much to defend their independence." and ""The right of defence on the part of a state does not exempt it from its responsibility to respect international law, particularly regarding the safeguarding of civilian populations." Both of the above come courtesy of Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano.

The Vatican, like many other countries, ignores a major issue - what would Israel (or another country) need to do in order to act responsibly? Israel has dropped leaflets in Beirut, warning those near Hezbollah centers to get out. Should Israel invade, forcibly remove everyone, do their bombings, and escort everyone home? Assuming they could do that without being attacked for "forcible population transfers."

So, let's hear it? What should Israel do? How many missiles can Israel launch per rocket from Hezbollah? Nu? I'm waiting...
