Israel May Agree To Ceasefire

Because of frustration over the inability of Israel to contain nearly 200 Hezbollah rockets launched each day at Israel and the inability to control just 2,000 or 3,000 Hezbollah fighters with the 500,000 man Israeli army, Israel may give the U.N. ceasefire and diplomacy and peacekeeping a chance.

This frustration must send some alarms through U.S. Iraq War planners who have so far failed to control thousands of insurgents, terrorists and militia members by the 135,000 American troop forces in Iraq.

All of this only proves just how difficult it is to contain modern guerillia warfare for modern armies. The modern military has yet to develop war strategy that can contain very small guerillia forces and win.

It will interesting to see if the MidEast ceasefire and peace agreement does move forward or not. It will also be interesting to see if Hezbollah radicalism can truly be contained or not. Whether this peace can hold and what kind of force will create the southern Lebanon buffer zone is yet to be seen.
