Simple ideas can be the best ideas...

OK, this seems really simple, but the solution for the current uproar in the Middle East is for Hizbollah and Hamas to return the kidnapped Israeli soldiers. The long term solution is for nations and factions to stop attacking Israel. Of course, this isn't going to happen, but it is the only real answer.

Of course the UN has to make things complicated. These are the same people who can't stop wringing their hands about what to do about Iran and its nuclear ambitions. Maybe the UN should understand that Israel cannot negotiate with any organization whose goal is the complete destruction of Israel. Maybe the world press should understand that when Hizbollah is willing to use their own people as human shields, innocent lives will be lost. Having my own children has made me much more sensitive to human suffering. I hate seeing what is happening in Lebanon right now. But what alternative do the Israelis have to doing whatever it takes to root out and destroy Hizbollah?
