War and peace

Via Hot Air:
IDF officials said yesterday, before the ceasefire, that it would take them a week to get to the [Litani] river. Less than 24 hours later, with time now of the essence, some units are already there. According to their top commander in the field, they could have been there 10 days ago.
So, Israeli tanks are at the river, and the ceasefire (nudge, nudge) is supposed to take effect (wink, wink) at 7 a.m. Monday.

It has been speculated that this "peace" is just a trap for Hezbollah. Let's hope so.

Meanwhile, Florida Cracker says:
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert should probably update his resume.
I don't understand why anything was approved that didn't include the immediate release of the kidnapped soldiers. The IDF has the rest of the week-end to do some snot-pounding; let's see how that shakes down.
And Old War Dogs is awake this afternoon:
I wish I'd saved the links to the news about that Israeli field commander getting replaced. "Monty, meet George. Bye, Monty."
Also: Outside the Beltway and Euphoric Reality. Captain Ed here and here.

Jiblog calls the ceasefire a "feel good mirage."
