[/quote] Hi Subzero! I'm still trying to wrap my head around this whole ceasefire because it just doesn't make any sense; at least not on the surface. You don't mobilize 70,000 troops and assemble a vast array of tanks, APCs, artillery, aircraft etc., just to let it sit there and wither on the vine. And this after successfully softening up the enemy with air and naval bombardment for 8 straight days. My only guess as to why the brakes were slammed on the invasion is that there is something much, much larger going on behind the scenes that we, the little people aren't privy to. It's the only thing that makes any sense. So what could this 'something' be? My guess is the US told Israel to back off or else 1) they will not get a green light to take care of Iran with US backing and 2) the US will withhold it's veto on the Palestinian statehood bid. Further incentives could include keeping Egypt on a leash by inserting US troops in the Sinai (which is rumoured to be happening soon) and taking care of the northern front (Hezbollah et al) when SHTF. This is all conjecture of course, but unless someone can come up with a better scenario it's the only one that makes any sense to me. [/quote] and if you add the cost of doing all of that to do nothing in the end the ceasefire literally went from not a chance in hell to a result [/quote]
