I don't want to be pessimistic- I would like nothing more than to see the cessation of violence in the Middle-East-and indeed, around the globe.
However, I think that the situation between Israel and Hezbollah is very unstable. I want to know how long you, the thread reader passing by, thinks
the cease-fire will last. The cease-fire took effect four hours and fourty-eight minutes ago ( 1 am EST ). Or do you think that it will hold until UN
peace- keeping forces take up their positions? I hope the cease-fire lasts, but my cynical side thinks that it will be broken within 72 hrs. I hope
that I'm proven wrong. What do the rest of you think?
