Sharon could have cleared Arafat out of Beirut but lacked the will to go house to house and sustain casualities. It is crazy for Israel to give two seconds of thought to such madness.

Maybe the IDF has mastered the challenge of urban combat from all the training in the Negev and has learned from US advisors who fought in Fallujah.
