I actually snorted when I read this:

"The truth is — let me say this clearly — we didn't even expect (this) response ... that (Israel) would exploit this operation for this big war against us," said Komati.

He said Hezbollah had expected "the usual, limited response" from Israel after the two soldiers were seized by guerrillas on Israel's side of the border on July 12.

This is like the child that pulls on the dogs ear, and the dog growls, and the child giggles and does it again. And the dog growls. And the child laughs and does it again. And then, the dog bites. And the child starts crying, and blubbering.

I think that Hezbollah must be getting a lot of flack from neighboring countries, because otherwise they wouldn't have felt the need to make such a comment, which is essentially trying to make them out as the innocent victims.

Likening it to a child versus dog is very appropriate.

It's very appropriate. And the parental response in our house would have been...

"I guess you learned your lesson, huh? Now knock it off before you get something worse."

LOL - this is actually more like my sister and I when we were young. She's a year younger and she would come up to me and poke me - I'd say cut it out. She'd do it again - same response. Third time I'd turn around and smack her - she'd scream and cry at the top of her lungs. My mom actually watched her do this on more than one occasion.

It's an excellent analogy. Hezbollah are just like that - and then are completely surprised when it starts a war. Amazing.
