How far will Israel go. I can only hope that they don't stop before the terrorists are eliminated once and for all. FoxNews is reporting that Israeli troops are deploying close to the Syrian border. I bet President Asad of Syria is sweating bullets right now, and Ahmadinejad over in Iran ( who is unable to keep his mouth shut ) is trying to think of a way to save face when he doesn't come through with his pathetic "promises" to "destroy" Israel. Some times it seems like Ahmadinejad only talks when his head is surrounded by his a$$.
With the "death to Israel" rhetoric coming out of these two terrorist nations, Hezbollah, and Hamas.
Israel needs to strike deep, and deal a decisive blow to those nations who support these murderous terrorists and deal with them once and for all.

Knowing Israel they would go all the way given the chance too, and A few countries around the World would like to sit back and watch them do so, But remember there are other countries in this world who would not sit back and watch them...

i.e.: Russia, France maybe only the two countries i can Think of right now

It looks to me like they're going to try to take Southern Lebanon up to the Litani River, probably bypassing Tyre, and set up some kind of operation in the Bekaa Valley to block Syrian attempts to resupply Hezbollah. I don't think they'll try to take Tyre and get bogged down in a massive urban fight. They'll just try to cut it off from the rest of the country.

The operations in the Bekaa Valley are what I am most concerned about, this means they're trying to cut off Lebanon from Syria. How far the Israelis and the Syrians are willing to push things is pretty much anyone's guess. Both Olmert and Assad are relatively new and unproven leaders. They both seem inexperienced and reckless to me.

And if Syria and Israel get into it, expect Iran to join the fight as well - with the result being a much wider war.

I highly doubt Iran would get involved.The Iranians are ALL TALK, They wouldn't stand a chance against Israel, and they would be facing the risk of entering the United States into the conflict and then we would crush them with our much superior airpower alone, and they know that. Like I said before, for some reason the Iranians like to hear themselves talk. Maybe they think they sound tough, but I think they sound desperate and pathetic. Because of the current leadership i iran they don't even hold credibility in the Arab world.

Oh I don't doubt that they'll join in if Syria is attacked.

As for the braggiacado about our "superior firepower" etc - yeah we could defeat Iran in a conventional war. Only problem for us is that it won't be a conventional war. Imagine the current guerilla war in Iraq. And then multiply that by a factor of about a hundred.

Considering all the trouble we're having in Iraq anyway, my suspicion is that we're going to stay out of it unless things start looking really bad for Israel. Most Americans want no part of this madness anyway.

You can't "get rid of terrorists once and for all", at least not by fighting them through warfare.

If you wage war with them, their children, and neighbors will become those terrorists you were fighting, it turns into a perpetual cycle.

A war on terrorism... heh... whats next, a war on negativity?

Terrorists have to be dealt with the way the SAS has been dealing with the IRA. You have to silence them one by one, and dont leave evidence.
