Yes, Hezbolla is armed and supplied by Iran and Syria.

woodymanshould the u.s get in volved?

I think Israel can take care of itself. I think we should give moral support to Israel after it kicks some serious ass.

If Isreal wants the help give it to them. Now if the lebonese goverment wants to help and take out hezbollah then the US should offer air support for their army. I doubt lebanon will try and help Isreal, so unless this ends up involving syra or Iran more directly the US will stay out of this militartly.

Anlushac11But the US ... should use economic and political methods to force a cease fire at least.

The US is holding back on calling for a ceasefire until Israel has achieved its aims. It has no interest in the Lebanese people, but needs to similtaneously stand by its ally Israel and try to continue the facade of maintaining world peace.

Im an Israel supporter although i have lived in lebanon before ( I hate the people there ) anyways, this war is more like a cat and mouse game, I mean you have hezbolah firing missles to israel and israel having their warplanes bombing the infrastructure. Now Lebanon is like an exiled island. They are traped and the habitants of lebanon cannot move freely and with safty. Air and naval blockade stands in their way, electricity shortage, and the bridge to damascuz blown to bits. Is there any hope for lebanon? I hope not!

A little late for this poll dude... Try this: Build a time machine, go back to about 1910, and then give this poll. The United States has been involved in Middle East affairs in one way or another since World War One. As for helping Israel... By all means necessary should we back them up.

The US is already involved, as are many Western nations. I'd suggest that half of the problems in the Middle East today have some roots in Western involvement. And as much as I'd love to adopt a "we'll leave you alone if you leave us alone" policy to the whole region, it's a bit late for that now. It's like walking into a china shop, smashing up all the crockery, then discretely making an exit in the hope that no-one'll notice.

If this escalates into a full-scale war with Lebanon and Syria, I'm fairly confident that Israel can handle themselves. Their army might not be the largest or most technologically advanced in the world, but they've always proven to be very capable and they have a supreme amount of experience. The United States will likely send aid in the form of supplies and money, but I doubt they will become militarily involved. If things become particularly dire for Israel, however, perhaps if a coalition of Middle Eastern nations including Iran take them on and look to be winning, then the US might take military action. But in order to have a significant chance of turning the tide of such a conflict, the thinly-stretched US army would probably have to reassign resources from Iraq and Afghanistan. Which is a situation I'm sure insurgents and terrorists would take advantage of, and this could lead to a whole new crisis.

Whether they should get involved, there isn't really a black and white answer that I'd be prepared to give to such a grey situation.

I am still not sure I understand why all of these people hate Israel, I mean I have read the textbook answers, but it must be more than that to be willing to go to an all out war, and yes the us should help out.

Religious reasons, cultural reasons, political reasons, territorial reasons... I think those are all of them. Wars have been fought over much less in the past, I guess. Heck, half of the wars between Britain and France were basically a British king saying, "I WANT IT!". In fact, I think that sums up most wars throughout time...
