While roughly half of Hezbollah’s military capability has been wiped out since the Israeli response, a number of reports suggest it will take Israel a few more weeks to destroy Hezbollah’s military capability.
I say go for it.
If this Israeli campaign takes another week or two, or three, then so be it. Hold back the diplomacy until the job is completed. No phony cease-fires. Get the job done. Clean out Hezbollah once and for all and put these evil thugs out of business. It needs to be done.
Then, once the mission is completed, some kind of ceasefire deal can be arranged.
Believe it or not, the Israeli stock market was up 2.1 percent today, and the Arabia Titans Index was up 0.6 percent today. The Dow Jones opened up 50 points higher on good earnings reports. The dollar remains firm. Gold is down $5-6 bucks after falling $16 bucks yesterday. Oil is up slightly.
The point of all these quotes is to suggest that world business is going about its business. Israel’s actions to clean out Hezbollah are being viewed as a big positive for world peace and economic stability.
