It has been forcasted for today or tomorrow, for the ground assault on Lebanon.
Most people I know have family in both Lebanon and Israel, this should be an interesting time.
I couldnt find a thread on the current status of the battle, so I started one here.
What I have found interesting is that the US is not calling for a ceasefire. It sounds to me like they want this battle to start. It's not like they
have to get involved... they dont even want to call for a ceasfire.
Those who have pipeline news feeds, I suggest watching them.
Condoleza rice is currently speaking on the matter :
"A ceasfire would only be a false hope, as terrorists would use that time to launch further attacks."
So, the US, Canada, and countries from around the world have evacuated their civilians from Lebanon, and some areas of Israel.
The Israeli forces are poised and ready along the border.
The Israeli aircraft are making regular drops on Lebanon.
The clock is ticking.
