War is no place or time for politics
But like I said, the foot-dragging was uncalled for, ditto all this nonsense about a multi-national "peace-keeping" force, which most likely wouldn't have done anything. And also, as Captain's Journal points out, the Hezbollah's buildup came during the time that Ariel Sharon was prime minister, another clue to show that he was not the "hero" that some seem to want to think he was. See this earlier entry to understand more clearly why he isn't.
And, as Captain's Journal also sums up perfectly, war is no time for politics, and most definitely not attempts to broker "cease-fire" agreements, which only end up being broken by the Islamofascists who started the gun and rocket firing in the first place later on. It only costs more lives, and leads to yet more attacks that could've been stopped more easily by simply mowing down and punishing the enemy as they deserve to be.
Update: if you'd like to know more about a subject related to the Lebanon war, check out this report by a radio talk show host in Nevada, which talks about the case of Samir Kuntar, a Lebanese terrorist who's been in prison since 1979 for the murder of at least four people. A monster whom the Hezbollah's been trying unsuccessfully to get back for more than two decades already.
