Update on my thoughts

I said before in comments that I thought Israel (with international troops) should occupy Southern Lebanon after the war, to help with rebuilding. I have to amend myself, after speaking with a friend of mine. I think that would be a disaster, thinking about it. In retrospect, all Israel can hope for with this war is to weaken Hezbollah and their ability to inflict harm, with the thought that that will bring a temporary detante. That's it.

Don't give up. Israel may yet move into and reoccupy Southern Lebanon.

Don't give up? LOL, give up on what? Israel may yet do that, but I am convinced it would be a bad decision on their part, after thinking it through.

Reoccupy?

I was thinking depopulate, salt, and leave.
