The One Hour Cease Fire

First of all the "cease fire" agreement was one of the most ridiculous things I have heard in a long time... I thought Condi said that no cease-fire would make sense unless the situation actually changed. Did the situation change? Is Hezbollah still armed? Are they still a terrorist group? Are they still being funded by Iran and Syria? So what's changed...?

Why would Hezbollah honor that agreement when they don't even honor the lives of their own civilians? Why would we give Hezbollah leader the ammunition to go on Terror TV and tell all of Lebanon they won?

Well, I think anyone with a modicum of reason knew it wouldn't last anyway...

"...Up to a dozen rockets have been fired at Israeli soldiers in southern Lebanon, in what Israel has called a violation of the hours-old ceasefire in the area.
There were no reports of injuries from the incident. An army spokesman said Israel did not return fire after the salvo, which contravened the UN-negotiated truce in the region.

"The UN said the cessation "appears to be generally holding"... ???
