Dying of thirst

Why is the population of southern Lebanon being forced to withdraw to the north of the river Litani? Why were southern Lebanese citizens spooked by late-night phone calls from Israel on the eve of the Israeli attack?



The War on Terror is a war for dwindling natural resources.

Jeff Wells:

If Israel again reaches the Litani and holds it, the pressure will be that much greater to exploit Lebanon's waters, because the environmental exigencies are that much more exacerbated this century then they were even twenty years ago. In 2002, Ariel Sharon threatened Lebanon with war if it diverted the water of the Hasbani River from the Sea of Galilee, Israel's largest reservoir. How will nations behave when they're dying of thirst?
