It's proven time and time again, that heavy military responses, premptive activities, building fences, sealing borders & checkpoints, arresting lawmakers, etc. has not been successful with our adversaries, whether the Palestinians, Hezbollah, etc. I've said it before, it's like when a gardener prunes a bush, consequently branches grow more aplenty. The sources of discontent on all sides are not being addressed diplomatically year after year. Once again, we do not have control over our adversaries motivations, threats and style of operations, and the deterrence factor has not worked as effectively as continuous dialogue. Mr. Olmert and Mr. Bush have an obligation to implement a ceasefire and begin comprehensive dialogue with moderate individuals, otherwise the picture looks grim.
