Lebanon: Attrition War

“The situation is sliding into an attrition war. The broad support by all Lebanese and Palestinian faction, other than ‘Fateh al Islam’, to the army and its actions against those cold blood terrorist, has been eroding rapidly…” writes Bob from Lebanon. “I think that the window of opportunity, to decisively resolve the situation, is rapidly closing, a day or two at most. A political ‘resolution will only postpone the problem and even compound it. If ‘fateh al islam’ terrorists are not dealt with decisively, then a couple of month down the road we will face an even bigger explosion.”
