Putin says Israels "use of force should be balanced"

Balanced? In a War ? What does that mean, and how in the hell can you win if you're forced to be "balanced" ?

Mr Bush said that in order to bring the conflict to an end it was important to understand why it had started in the first place, "and that's because Hezbollah has been launching rocket attacks out of Lebanon into Israel and because Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers".

Mr Bush also called on Syria to put pressure on Hezbollah to end the violence.

Syria has said it will support Hezbollah and Lebanon against Israel's attacks.

Mr Putin was more critical of Israel's massive bombing campaign, saying that the "use of force should be balanced", But he added that it was unacceptable that Hezbollah was trying to reach its goals with abductions and strikes against an independent state.
