War is never far away in the Middle East and this article in today's Australian by
Ronen Bergman looks at the next one - LEBANON A POWDERKEG READY TO BLOW The border incident could lead to war

LAST Tuesday afternoon, several hours before a highly anticipated televised speech by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Lebanese army snipers fired at an Israeli military detail that was trimming trees on the Israeli side of the border. The premeditated attack came exactly four years after the end of the war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon. The question now is whether this incident could spark a chain reaction that results in another war...

Lebanon is a tinderbox. Whoever gave the command to the Lebanese snipers was playing with fire.

Of course, the provocations coming from the Lebanese proxies of Iran will all be forgotten when the fighting starts and the usual crowd of Israel bashers accuse it of fomenting the next war.
