"HAIFA, Israel - Israel massed tanks and troops on the border Friday and warned civilians to flee Hezbollah-controlled southern Lebanon as it prepared for a likely ground invasion to set up a deep buffer zone.
So far, Israel's 10-day offensive in Lebanon has mostly been fought by air and naval forces. Perhaps signaling a further increase in fighting, Israel also called up more reservists Friday.
NBC News’ Rick Francona said many of the troops massing on the border were likely combat engineers."
Err, not with Armor Rick.....sheesh.
Make no mistake Israel is preparing to go into southern Lebanon. More to come.
UPDATE: Condi Rice: "Syria knows what it needs to do and Hezbollah is the source of the problem.". Right! Israel isn't going to stop until Hezbollah is a problem no more - which is to say - dead and gone.
