NABATIYEH, Lebanon — The United States has given Israeli forces between 10 and 14 days to finish dealing Hezbollah “a strategic blow,” a senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official told FOX News, as both Israeli forces and Hezbollah guerrillas continued to volley rockets across the Lebanon-Israel border.
While admitting that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) is working at a “slow pace,” the official insisted the plan was constructed out of concern for human life.
“We could do it much faster if we would be willing to inflict high civilian casualties,” the official said. “The decision was made to move in a methodical, slow way.”
A TIMELINE?!?!?!?! What kind of message is this sending these terrorists. Why they can just wait out Israel now and they win! How dare the Bush Administration resort to such things as timelines.
This just goes to prove how full of shit the Bush White House really is.
