    Hmm, leaked documents to a blog seems a bit odd?

    Better wait for a little more confirmation from other sources.

    /\/\/\Whatever. The fact remains, it's not chapter 7; therefore Israel wont bite.

    That emboldens the enemy everywhere.

    It could make things a lot tougher in Iraq.

    OK. Let's see how quick the Hezbos return the two kidnapped soldiers (part of the conditions of the ceasefire).

    'Wonder what time frame has been laid down for this to happen?

    To me - this is key.

    Hmm. I wonder what role this played (or will play) in the ceasefire.........

    Israel Asks U.S. to Ship Rockets With Wide Blast
    By DAVID S. CLOUD
    WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 Israel has asked the Bush administration to speed delivery of short-range antipersonnel rockets armed with cluster munitions, which it could use to strike Hezbollah missile sites in Lebanon, two American officials said Thursday.

    The request for M-26 artillery rockets, which are fired in barrages and carry hundreds of grenade-like bomblets that scatter and explode over a broad area, is likely to be approved shortly, along with other arms, a senior official said.

    But some State Department officials have sought to delay the approval because of concerns over the likelihood of civilian casualties, and the diplomatic repercussions. The rockets, while they would be very effective against hidden missile launchers, officials say, are fired by the dozen and could be expected to cause civilian casualties if used against targets in populated areas.<<<

    Heh. Well, if the ceasefire holds...hopefully the press will then be able to sweep in and capture the extent of the damage for all the world to see. 'Can't happen quick enough IMO

    Nezzabugerhead can claim all the victory he likes. He got hosed.

    " Look at the resolution itself, covered in detail by the Jerusalem Post and also by The Corner. The points adopted in this proposal say nothing of an immediate withdrawal by Israel, nor does it link the war to the issue of Lebanese criminals in Israeli prisons, the motivation for starting the war in the first place. Nasrallah got skunked on the one action he hoped to accomplish, and the resulting prisoner swaps will likey involve only those captured during the war. It also explicitly puts the blame for the war on Hezbollah -- and excludes it from any other legitimation in the document.

    In fact, the resolution requires Hezbollah to cease all hostilities, while it only requires Israel to cease offensive operations. Until Hezbollah stops launching rockets at Israel, the IDF has a free hand to take responsive action to stop them and take out their launch capabilities. In effect, it says that Israel can continue the fight until Hezbollah stops attacking them.

    The resolution also demands the end of military support for Hezbollah and the exercise of sovereignty over southern Lebanon by the Lebanese government. That demand is not new, and had the Lebanese complied with it last year, this war would never have taken place. The Siniora government will have to control the territory south of the Litani, and according to this agreement, everywhere else in Lebanon, too. "

    Sheesh. Hezzbo Rocket Launchers buried only 6 yards down (on the side of a hill) and Israel could NOT take them out!!....They need to get that job finished before Sunday's ceasefire goes into effect or this will have been all for naught.
