Just a thought on Israel’s so-called disproportionate response: Hezbollah evidently doesn’t agree, or else they would have handed back the two Israeli soldiers they kidnapped on July 12.

UPDATE. Andrew Coyne:

On July 13, one day after Israel began its assault on Hezbollah’s south Lebanon stronghold, the European Union denounced what it called Israel’s “disproportionate use of force.” France and Russia both issued statements to the same effect. This was, I repeat, one day into the campaign, when the civilian death toll was in double digits.

Maybe they meant “disproportionate” in the sense that Israel’s response wasn’t strong enough.
