The United States was right to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution. After Israel's withdrawal from Gaza and southern Lebanon, both areas have become launch pads for unguided rockets -- more than 1000 have been launched on Israel from Gaza already. Israel has every right to respond to these acts of war with the use of its military. The United Nations must take no action which would limit Israel's inherent right of self defense. Rather it should take steps to enforce its resolutions mandating Hezbollah's disarmament and outlawing terror financing.
