    Isreal has the firepower - and doesn't use it. Why bomb a bridge here and there? Why attack sometimes in the north of Beirut, sometimes the road to Damaskus? Why not flatten South Lebanon instead before invading it, why not concentrate on South Lebanon alone? You have the cluster-bombs, the daisy cutters, the missiles and the artillery. You told the civilians in South Lebanon to leave. Those still present are there to support Hisbollah. You have the means to destroy every South Lebanes village to the hight of one millimeter above ground before you enter the area. Hisbollah and Nasrallah would not smile any more. But you don't do it. Why? You play around some Hisbollah villages with special units instead of pulverize the enemy forces before, unbelievable. Why not cut off the electricity to South Lebanon? Why not cut off completely their water supplies? I don't understand this Israeli method of war.
