Israeli lawyers sue Lebanon for damages

Israeli lawyers want to sue Lebanon for the damage done to northern Israel. You know that among Israel's sick society (86% of them support what's being done in Lebanon, remember) you're still going to find lawyers that are even sicker. I guess lawyers are lawyers everywhere.

Perhaps a settlement can be arranged, each side pays for the damage done to the other?

Actually this brings up a good point: Lebanon is bound to get aid money for reconstruction. And who will be paying for Israel's war (and already is paysing for it)? The American taxpayer, that's who.
