Lebanese Premier wants truce, Israel attacks for 4th day

Just when things are looking bleak...nothing changes.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Seniora called Saturday for an immediate ceasefire as Israel continued to pound its northern neighbour.

Someone's not listening.

Hezbollah guerrillas kept up a concerted missile barrage at the Jewish state, with their rockets landing ever further south.

Okay, nobody's listening.

In a televised address to the nation, Seniora called for 'a complete and immediate ceasefire under the supervision of the United Nations' to end what he called Israel's 'collective punishment' of the Lebanese people.

It's hard to only punish a particular terrorist group when they blend into the civilian background. On one side of the arguement you can state that Israel is "attacking without prejudice" but one can also blame Hezbollah for allowing attacks on civilians through their actions. So who do we blame? Let's blame albinos. They've skated by freely long enough.

More than 80 Lebanese have been killed and scores more wounded in the Israeli attacks, which began Wednesday, shortly after Hezbollah abducted two Israeli soldiers and killed eight others in a cross- border raid.

So what are the chances of ending this through a game of Texas Hold'em? What do you say?
