We thought the government only hated West Bank and Gaza Strip settlers. Ynet is reporting that the cabinet has voted no to a massive ground offensive designed to wipe Hizballah off the map. The army came up with a plan to allow us to go home and the government decided that that was a bad idea. After all Galileans are settlers too.
I spoke with a soldier yesterday and he feels that there was a media bias against the ground offensive from the beginning. The media was against sending in ground troops and that was how they slanted their stories. Once we were in Lebanon already they made it seem like we had already won, to get the public against the idea of staying there. I don't know what their agenda is here, but the only way to win a war (as everyone knows) is to send in ground troops. Without that we'll start getting shellacked again in another 6 months.
If the government would support our troops the way the people support the troops, this would be a much happier country.
