    Why fight house to house? Its crazy... Did the Allies in WWII worry about being called "war criminals" when they bombed German cities to bits? LEVEL the place--but first drop leaflets--and use loudspeakers --give the population 10 minutes to come out with their hands up --OR ELSE--in fact do not censor CNN and the news media--invite them to observe --FIRST--the warning --then the levelling--film it--showeit to the rest of South Lebanon and tell them to high-tail it north of the Litani..WHY THE KID GLOVES?--this ain't no way to win a war when you have the power to do it--forget "measured response" forget "war crimes"--which it isn't since you gave warning and called for surrender or evacuation... JUST DO IT! Tell the BBC and English critics to bugger off and check what Churhill did to its fascist threat= bombs away! In fact TELL the HEZZY and its "civilian" supporters in South Lebanon they are now facing Operation CLINT EASTWOOD: "Do ya feel lucky punks? Well,do ya?"
