Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Haaretz reports on the Israeli cabinet's acceptance of the U.S. proposal for U.S. and/or U.K. troops to guard Ze'evi's killers - to ensure that they are not sprung from prison by Arafat's men. Looks to me like the first step towards putting American troops into the conflict in a more general way. Potentially a dangerous precedent, particularly if we get into this piecemeal. What happens when Jihad Islami terrorists start shooting at our troops - do we shoot back? Hunt them down? We should figure out where we're going with this before we let the State Department drag us into a Beirut-style no-win situation. And I'm saying this as an advocate of an imposed solution!
