Ambiguous Cooperation Opportunity

From Beirut to the Beltway:: "The Lebanese cabinet has issued a statement that could be interpreted as a promise to send the army to the south if Israel stopped its attacks....

"I am interpreting this as a message to Israel that if the attacks stopped, there would be a serious attempt to finally send the Lebanese army to the south and end the reign of Hizbullah on defense matters."

It seems a bit too late for that, but maybe the two armies could dismantle Hizbullah simultaneously. Don't think that's likely, but it would be pretty sweet.
