If you use the military option you say to the generals "I want you to destroy Hezbollah" and let them get on with it. If you use the political option then you send your Foreign Minister to the UN (where the decisions are being made) to state your case in person. Olmert has done neither, and now he is in a trap of his own making. Having to say to the US that Israel may not automatically accept the UN resolution. Well I think Olmert is about to get the shock of his life in the form of a telephone call from the President of the US. Who will tell him what to do, and Olmert will have to do it.
