I heard that too. They're expecting a prisoner swap very soon, and Italy is taking the initiative. I think that's new, the Italians never showed interest in the Middle East, but it seems like PM Prodi is taking a very pro-active initiative since the war stopped. I wonder why!

I have heard that the reason France stepped up and committed 2000 troops was because the Italians had volunteered to lead the UNIFIL force and France could not stomach their 200 - 400 troops being led by an Italian contingent.

But overall I agree that it's surprising that the Italians are taking the initiative here. What's in it for them?

I have no idea. Maybe they're searching for a role to play in the Middle East. So they saw this crisis as a perfect opportunity to initiate that. It’s not everyday that a door opens.

Prodi is emerging to be very different from Berlusconi. It's weird how an election in Europe turns the policy of the country. It happened in Spain with Zapatero, Germany with Merkel. I wonder what will happen to the UK if Blair loses. On that subject, Georges Gallaway is in Beirut since Friday. He met with the Lebanese and Hezbollah leaders offering an apology for Blair's behavior.

I can't imagine Israel swapping anyone for the three soldiers kidnapped before the war.
