From another post:
Another major escalation is not desired by anyone in Israel, and IMO is unlikely. However, don't forget why Israel got engaged in Lebanon in the first place--it was because of constant attacks on Israel from the Lebanese territory. And if these attacks resume, then I would expect Israel to go in force, just not with the borderline retarded strategy that they employed last summer.the threat of war is not over, many think that 2007 will whitness a more brutal war,,, do u (israeli's) think that it has to be done and cannot be avoided???
