The article states.....

After a week of dithering, the Bush Administration has finally decided to send Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the Middle East. But when Condi arrives on Friday, ten days after the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah began, she won't try and push for an immediate ceasefire.

Maybe because cease fires don't work with terrorists. History shows that cease fires only give terrorists time to re-arm.

In 1993 and 1996, Secretary of State Warren Christopher launched a vigorous push for diplomacy that quieted fighting between the Israeli army and Lebanese militants.

Yeah, that worked out really well. We don't need 'quiet time', we need a SOLUTION !

But today, according to the Wall Street Journal, Bush and Rice "have no intention of launching a similar round of diplomacy to end the current fighting. Visiting Damascus is out of the question. And a cease-fire isn't their most pressing aim, they say."

Duh ! The Cease fires failed in the past, maybe this administration learns from past mistakes.

No, Condi's belatedly stopping by "to build support for the effective crippling of Hezbollah." An ambitious goal, but shouldn't an end to the violence come first?

How can you cripple and defeat the enemy with a cease fire ? I thought you defeated your enemy by winning a war ! (See history of WWI and WWII.)

See rest of the nonsense

The fighting in the Middle East will never stop until the end of time,so why negotiate.
