Israel's going down and taking US with them
- Jerusalem Post is asking for resignation of IDF generals due to their retreat from Bint Jbeil and their unpreparedness because of the overuse of the word 'terrorist'.
- Times UK reports Nasrallah eclipses bin Laden and has 89% support among Sunnis and 80% support among Lebanese Christians.
- In a slow controlled display of his arsenal, Hizbullah promises to reach Central Israel if Israel does not back off its air strikes in the next couple of days. This statement was by Nasrallah who, according to Mossad, never lies.
- It appears the war was started by a personal insult: 'Nasrallah called the new team "small" and even made a dismissive hand gesture. Writing in the Haaretz newspaper, Doron Rosenblum said this insult to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his advisers virtually guaranteed Israel would launch a harsh military response. He said Nasrallah's short, pointed speech really kicked off the war. "Was it a clever trap laid by the wily fox?" Rosenblum wrote. "Or perhaps one uncalculated moment of catastrophic hubris."'
To save the facade of the US 'war on terror', Israel must exercise unlimited 'scorched earth' policy to wipe out Hizbullah. Nothing less will do now. But it may already be too late - even a 'targeted killing' of Nasrallah will not help.
