Obama Supports Lebanese Sovereignty?

Did President Obama flip flop from his 2006 stand on Lebanon? While its democratic neighbor to the south pummeled Lebanon for six weeks, Senator Barack Obama said:

"I don't think there is any nation that would not have reacted the way Israel did after two soldiers had been snatched. I support Israel's response to take some action in protecting themselves." (August 22, 2006)

"I don't fault Israel for wanting to rid their border with Lebanon from those Katyusha missiles that can fire in and harm Israeli citizens, so I think that any cease fire would have to be premised on the removal of those missiles." (July 2006)

Democratic Israel did not respect Lebanese sovereignty. It not only bombed Southern Lebanon, Israel attacked key infrastructure sites throughout democratic Lebanon.
