Brutal Mistakes

Ha’aretz’s military affairs expert Ze’ev Schiff is pleased as punch that the green light the U.S. has given will last “for a week or two, and possibly more,”  provided Israel doesn’t make a “brutal mistake in the fighting.”  He has in mind how the Qana massacre in southern Lebanon brought short Operation Grapes of Wrath in 1996.  So, Israel can keep wiping out families one at a time, as it’s been doing, as long as it doesn’t wipe out 106 women and children in one fell swoop.

If that weren’t sick enough, look at how Israel is lowering its draft age. 

And I can’t get over that astonishing coincidence–Sept. 11 mastermind Mohamed Atta wrote his will on the very day on which Israel unleashed Grapes of Wrath.
