It's almost about time
I guess this is good news, Israeli Prime Minister Olmert has only taken 9 or so days to move from possibly maybe ordering an offensive for some point in the future to ordering an offensive for some point in the future. It took him around 14 days to reach that first point so he at least deserves good marks for improvement. His behavior reminds me of Grant’s comment at the Siege of Chattanooga that General Rosecrans was acting like a duck smacked on the head (too bad Olmert doesn’t have a superior who could replace him). We can only hope that this offensive, if it does happen, is handled in a much better manner than the previous month was. I also hope he hasn’t exhausted U.S. support with his idiotic and drawn out campaign. Of course, if we weren’t going to support Israel however they dealt with Hezbollah President Bush should have been “encouraging” Olmert to either invade sooner or stop sooner. Anyways, what’s done is done. It’s just a shame we can't have more faith that Olmert will finish what must be done.
