ABSTRACT
The author reflects on international conflicts that has involved the U.S. and Israel. He believes that the U.S. invasion of Iraq is not a product of extensive thought, so is Israel's attack on Lebanon to eliminate Hezbollah. A Human Rights Watch report revealed that Israel has slaughtered hundreds of civilians in their cause. Still, Israel has received support from various nations and from the media.
