    If we stop now we are seen as losers and if we continue we will be even bigger losers. That is what Ehud has got us into and we knew that getting back into Lebanon and create a security zone would be a major mistake. So why did we fall for this yet again? Now we will have to go in with more troops and control an even larger areas. What that will have in store for us only the Hezbollah knows, because they have by far and large prepared themselves for just that eventuallity. We are walking straight into their trap. Every Lebanese can see that their country is being invaded and they can see who is taking up the defense of Lebanon. We are uniting Lebanon behind the Hezbollah and at the same time being seen as "crazy" by most of the world and every enemy is watching and learning how stupid we have become. A immediate cease fire would be the best way out of this and leave Israel with something to negotiate with, expand and we will have nothing but troops in Lebanon, a Hezbollah victory.
