Instapundit.com: "This war in the Middle East nearly demolishes the theory that democracies don't go to war with each other. Lebanon, aside from Hezbollah's state-within-a-state, is a democracy. At least it's an almost-democracy. Aside from my personal affection for Lebanon, the country where I recently lived, the only country other than the US where I've ever lived, this is what anguishes me the most: The Arab world's only democracy is being torn to pieces by another democracy."
Emphasis is mine, and shows that Totten is self-refuting. Israel wouldn't be in Lebanon now if it weren't for Hezbullah; Hezbullah started the war, and got Lebanon involved, because they weren't constrained by merely being co-located with a democracy.
