United States to Israel: you have one more week to blast Hizbullah
The US is giving Israel a window of a week to inflict maximum damage on Hizbullah before weighing in behind international calls for a ceasefire in Lebanon, according to British, European and Israeli sources.
"It's clear the Americans have given the Israelis the green light. They [the Israeli attacks] will be allowed to go on longer, perhaps for another week," a senior European official said yesterday. Diplomatic sources said there was a clear time limit, partly dictated by fears that a prolonged conflict could spin out of control.
After Mr Blair spoke, British officials privately acknowledged the US had given Israel a green light to continue bombing Lebanon until it believes Hizbullah's infrastructure has been destroyed.

Lebanon voted hezbollah into its government, and permits it to attack the yehudis. Any lebanese who is suprised at israel responding to war with war is a fool. They've permited hezbollah to infest their nation, now they'll have to suffer alongside their militia. They permited hezbollah to attack israel and capture its soldiers, and still have done nothing, not even condemed hezbollah, for the attack.
