The Ultimate Test

Israel’s motives are going to be clear very soon. Hizbollah has agreed to disarm and have a foreign force as a buffer at the borders: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/29/AR2006072900218_pf.html
Should Israel refuse a cease-fire then I am ready to interpret that the real objective was much broader than the emasculation of Hizbollah. Should Rice be undermined by our president then it will be clear again that Lebanon is the butcher block that I referred to earlier.

Of course they did -- they're getting their asses kicked. And yes, it's seemed obvious all along that Israel has a "larger agenda", as do all of the players involved.

I agree with you that this is the ultimate test. But I think it's a test for both Israel and Hezbollah. It's a test for Israel to end all this, as well as for Hezbollah to accept such a force. As for disarming, this will be difficult to achieve for it needs time. Just 2 days ago, the leaders in Iran said that Hezbollah will not disarm. So this will be interesting to watch.

I think we all need to be careful about our assumptions/biases on both sides.

Don't believe everything you think

Israel can't stop until their objective is reached. They need to disarm, disband, and destroy Hezbollah. D&#233;tente is not an option with people who desperately want to kill you and will at any opportunity. They need to be convinced that Hezbollah is no more. Otherwise they would have let it go tit-for-tat.
