    The usual blind and delusional stuff from Arens. To see where Arens is coming from, consider that he voted AGAINST peace with Egypt (1979), AGAINST withdrawl from Lebanon (1985, following the Lebanon invasion), and was against Barak's withdrawl from the security strip in Lebanon. But the Lebanon policy is a success. Instead of a couple of soldiers killed every week, one soldier dying per year. The deal with Hizballah is that if a civilian target is hit, the other side does the same. So now, on rare occassions, a military outpost in the Shabba farm area is hit. (Lebanon considers the area occupied.) IDF responds with fire on various Hizballah outposts, and that's it. Recently there was wider fire (resulting from the Sidon assassination). Again it was on military outposts and was over with quickly. Hizballah is now under increasing pressure in Lebanon to dismantle its military operations altogether. Maybe things will get even better. But expect Arens to find a reason why still bad
