You say potato, I say potahto, you say defensive, I say offensive, let’s call the whole thing off


The US and France have agreed on wording for a cease-fire resolution. Hezbollah would stop attacking Israel and Israel would cease “all offensive military actions.” Except... doesn’t Israel claim that everything it’s done has been defensive?

Oh, and Israel would be allowed to keep its troops occupying Lebanon.

It calls for an end to weapons being supplied to Hezbollah by other countries, so that the only military power in Lebanon would be Israel (well, I hear that there’s a Lebanese army too, but since its entire response to the bombing, invasion and occupation of its country has been, um, nothing, I don’t think we need to count it).

Israel says it will continue operations while it studies the draft... very... slowly.
