Israel is in the deep dark corner.
No choice. Every alternative is gone. They must continue to attack, augment forces, and attack again to keep face. They must occupy Lebanon again, subdue it completely. It is the situation they have created for themselves, and they can resolve it only with force. I'm sure my own government will give them whatever help they need-- whether in the form of bunker busters or the bullying machinations that are supposed to pass for diplomacy of Dr. Rice & John Bolton. We're just nourishing cowards to confront and destroy the families of more cowards. Where a fighting force is only as good as its weapons, cowards abound.
