Israel Expanding Ground Forces

Israel decided on Wednesday to expand its ground offensive in Lebanon, and Hizbollah's leader vowed to turn southern Lebanon into a graveyard for Israeli troops and to unleash more rockets on the city of Haifa.

FIVE THOUSAND IDF AIR FORCE SORTIES in a month haven't defeated a Hezbollah force of 3,000, so...

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's security cabinet authorized the move to send troops further, possibly to the Litani river (mmm...fresh water!), up to 20 km (13 miles) from the border. A senior political source said the expanded offensive could last 30 days.
