Is it worth starting a war over 2 soldiers being kidnapped?

Is there any sense of proportion? If someone, a terrorist, blows up a building and kills a dozen people, would a nuclear bomb be a proportional response. Without a proportional response, indiscriminate killing is the act of a bully. Someone that knows they have the best weapons and they can kill the other side much easier. We should question why this war is going on in Lebanon and Haifa right now? Is there no such word as "diplomacy" in their vocabulary? How many days should a problem, such as a kidnapping, be negotiated before we start a world war?? Israel and the US, with the veto at the Security Council, look like war mongerers.
