Hezbollah is an Idea

I'm no fan of Hezbollah, but let's get real. Hezbollah is not a person. Hezbollah is an idea. With that in mind, let's consider the current Israeli/United States venture to stamp out this idea.

Can an idea be killed with a bomb?
Can an idea be suffocated, burned, or dismembered?
Can you ride over an idea with an Army Tank?
Can you crush an idea with a bunker-buster?

Take a hammer and smash an idea, and it will fragment into tiny pieces, all of which will grow and strengthen.
Take a knife and cut an idea, and its blood will fill the veins of all who see.
Take a rifle to assassinate an idea and it will walk away. Or shoot back.

Ideas rarely die by violence.
Only people -- often mothers and children -- can be killed.

And so they are, and always will be, when people think they can kill an idea.
Bloody day after bloody day, any other idea will be disproven.
