Soldiers Kidnapped Warrant What?

In a repeat of summer’s soldier kidnapping for ranson, two nations took very different approaches. Some reports suggest an Israeli soldier was nabbed for leverage in returning a Palestinian physician kidnapped by the Jewish state but a week earlier. This resulted in a one month pummeling of Lebanon punctuated by a final week scattering of carpet bombs.

However, five mercenaries were recently captured in Iraq near the Kuwaiti border. With five times as many taken, one might assume 5 months of bombings closed by a 5 week littering of carpet bombs? If Israel has the right to defend itself, it seems Iraq (our newest democracy in the region) should as well…

However, can anyone explain all the violence between and within the 3 democracies in the region?
