Ground Troops Into Lebanon

Now it gets uglier:

Israeli ground troops have entered southern Lebanon to attack Hezbollah bases on the border, a government spokesman said Monday. Israel’s six-day-old offensive against Hezbollah following the capture of two Israeli soldiers earlier had been an aerial campaign.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair and U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan called for the deployment of international forces to stop the bombardment of Israel and to persuade the Jewish state to stop attacks on Hezbollah, while the European Union said it was considering the deployment of a peacekeeping force.
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki also arrived in Syria for talks with the government on the crisis. Syria and Iran have applauded Hezbollah’s capture of two Israeli soldiers, which triggered the offensive.

I hope the Israelis smash these guys into nothing.

  1. They’re back across the border now ~ seems it was a quick foray in, get yer business done and split immediately.
    That’s a pity.

    Heh…take a look at Ralph Peters’ editorial in today’s Post, he was wondering whether Israel would have the courage to take this step.

    Screw international troops — better to smash the terrorists now.
