I've Got Your Proportional Response Right Here!

I think I've figured out why people are calling for a Proportional Response from Israel attacking Hezbollah in Lebanon. I think they are still upset about getting spanked for sticking out their toungues at their moms.

I like the idea of "make the punishment fit the crime." When I said a forbidden word around my mom, she didn't say one back, she washed my mouth out with soap.

Professor Bainbridge has a parable that I think does not apply to the situation. Some guy is upset because someone else won't let him paddle up a creek, and his boatmate wants to torture those on the shore. My response better explains Israel's position.
