14. Regarding your last point
Lebanon made no effort to cut ties with the US even when they first invaded Iraq and all during the ensuing occupation. I would note that the number of Iraqi civilians killed in the six years since the US invaded is much higher than the civilian death toll of any of the recent conflicts that Israel has been involved with over the past forty years.

The other points you make are interesting ones. I do share your frustration with the ambivalence the world seemed to feel about the Rwandan genocide, and the way most of the "Western World" currently feels about conflicts and atrocities going on in Africa generally.
