israel has been dropping leaflets (in arabic etc) from the skies, warning people to leave. further, israel also gave them 48 hrs to get out. the same
cannot be said for hezbollah. also, who is to say these injured lebanese are not hezbollah. hezbollah has implanted itself among the civilian
populace. crucial battles in world war 2 (or any war come to think of it) have never been won by constantly giving civilians caught up in the battle
an opportunity to leave (though israel has done this) or by giving outside third-parties a chance to come in - which is basically a different way of
asking israel to affect a ceasefire without having to ask hezbollah to do the same or without actually asking for a ceasefire. "hey, can you quit
your attacks on hezbollah while we come in to assist the populace, for as long as we need?". "No" is the correct answer.
