    Few minutes ago, I was shocked to hear that the mighty IDF is engaging the Hizbullah in Bint Jbail in a fierce battle. Oh, my God!!! Isn't that the same Bint Jbail the IDF claimed to have occupied and levelled to the ground in the early days of the invasion?? If after 28 days of fighting, 63 Israeli army deaths and God knows how many Lebanese and Israeli innocent lives, the legendary IDF is still fighting in Bint Jbail, which lies on the borders with Israel, how long will it take to reach the Litani River which lies 40 Kms from the Blue line?? Since the IDF/IAF so far failed to accomplish any significant military victory, for the sake of the Lebanese and the Israeli lives, I call upon Nasrallah and his fighters to announce that all their rocket launcher have been destroyed by the IAF and declare that they ran out of rockets, hopefully that will give Olmert and Peretz a face-saving exit and an excuse to claim victory. They need to satisfy their arrogance and feed their egos.
