    And as I understand it, we are a big part of the financial aid.....The Big Black Question that should be asked is - why are we going to rebuild it (Lebanon) when the war is not yet over???
    Because this engagemet is over, the Israeli's have mostly withdrawn and Hez is concentrating on trying to out do the aid packages from outsiders.

    Here is an interesting post mortem on the "war". Its interesting how the immediate headlines, photo ops and grand statements of victory all seem lost as time goes on.

    ^^I think what happens with a war..or any event like this is we sorta look for the instant winner. Maybe its even more common with Americans.
    We watch a 10 rounder and see the guys beat on one another.
    But were left somehow disatisfied until some ref raises an arm and announces for us...the champ.

    ...The firing of rockets into urban areas in northern Israel disregarded international laws that call for distinguishing between civilian and military targets, Amnesty said.

    Nobody will, nobody would and they're not cooperative either way.

    Olmert accused of 'severe failure' over war in Lebanon


    The report focused on three individuals who conducted the war, Mr Olmert, Mr Peretz and Mr Halutz.

    Mr Olmert was criticised for blindly following the suggestion of the army without asking for alternative plans. The prime minister, according to the report, did not assess the readiness of the army to carry out its mission or ask relevant questions before embarking on war. The defence minister was criticised for accepting the post without adequate experience to carry it out and failing to seek expert advice.

    Most of the blame was levelled at Mr Halutz because he was the only one of the triumvirate with military experience. He was criticised for leading the country to war without offering the government any alternatives. He is also accused of preventing senior officers who disagreed with him from expressing their opinions to the cabinet.

    The report only deals with the first five days of the war, leaving the committee with much of their work to do. The government will benefit in the short term that much of the criticism has been postponed but it will have live in the shadow of future reports for most of the year.
