Wanna Play??

So who wants to play?
Well, somebody feels left out of this carnage that's been going on in the middle east.
"Someone" (so far un-identified) has launched a few rockets into northern Israel from southern Lebanon. No claims of responsibility so far and plenty of denials by hezbollah that they had anything to do with it. Even Israel is saying it's not hezbollah. Could the Israelis be chickening out of a 2006 repeat? Nasrallah in a recent speech has promised them that if they think of attacking Lebanon then 2006 will be a "walk in the park" compared to what he has in store for them (you gotta admit the guy is good with theatricals).

All I can say is that I hope that Lebanon is not dragged into this "Risk" game that's been going on. I think one crucial thing that a lot of actors in the middle east forget about is that if you wanna play with the big guys, you better have big guns.
