According to a pair of Gallup polls released last week, 83 percent of Americans 
say Israel is justified in taking military action against Hezbollah, while 76 
percent disapprove of Hezbollah's attacks on Israel. Yet when asked which side 
in the conflict the United States should take, 65 percent answer: neither side. 
Indeed, 3 in 4 Americans say they are concerned that the US military will be 
drawn into the fighting, or that it will increase the likelihood of terrorism 
against the United States.

    Gallup's numbers suggest two things. First, that most Americans, sizing up 
the warfare in northern Israel and southern Lebanon, recognize that Hezbollah 
is the aggressor and that Israel is fighting in self-defense. And second, that 
most Americans believe this fight has nothing to do with the United States.

    Welcome to Sept. 10.
