An interesting statement from the Lebanese defence minister - "we will defend our country against any invasion" What do we know about Lebanese forces? I condemn any acts of terrorism and organisations such as Hezbollah, but the Israeli offensive is decidedly 'heavy handed' - Surely!? Assuming Israel do push into Lebanon, is it likely they will get a 'bloody nose' (or even worse) or would it be complete and decisive victory for Israel? Something tells me these Lebanese are not going to let Israel simply rock up and start pushing them about!! I'm becoming massively p1ssed off at Israel's general conduct here and I think, Hezbollah and terrorism aside, that Israel deserve a mighty kicking for destroying infrastructure etc in and around Beirut. We now all know that mass air strikes, artillery and battalion after battalion of infantryman will not succeed against determined acts of terrorism - it's a special forces domain who would have an option to call in said assets. Destroy Hezbollah but leave the innocents out of it, Israel!! PS Some leadership here Blair and Co!!
