Just give peace a chance...

The Jeruslam Post reports that there will be NO MASS INVANSION of Lebanon; the IDF has been ordered to hold it's current postions. Read more here: Analysis: IDF fumes over denied victory. Of course a diplomatic solution is normally a good thing, but not in this case. No doubt Hezbollah will use this opportunity to regroup and re-equip. Sadly, this hold up of the offensive is being blamed on the US, which I don't doubt.


"But then, under pressure from the US, Defense Minister Amir Peretz made a frantic call to Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz and ordered him to stop the division in its tracks. 'We need to give the diplomatic process one last chance,' Peretz told Halutz. The orders trickled down the chain of command and by the time they reached 366, it had already reached Marjayoun, a stone's throw from the Litani."
