Instead of a blog by two MILITARY correpondents, who look at a situation from a narrow military point of view, Haaretz should organize a joint blog by a military expert and a political/diplomatic analyst. The news that the military expert reports will be analyzed by the political analyst so that a reader can put the news in perspective. Example: The present article. Let us say that the news about Hizballah missiles is correct (which apparently, the Scud news is not). Since the article mentions Baidatz, who gives an official estimate that Syria is interested in peace with Israel, the question would arise: So why do the Syrians supply Hizballah with missiles? Check with Baidatz and he will explain to you that the Syrians are doing it in order to pressure Israel into a better peaceful mindset. The picture now becomes clear. Israel has a choice: Go chase after missiles, or just make peace. Which way is better? Let the analyst figure this out if the military expert doesn't.
