A simple proposal.
The current difficulty in the ME seems to be somewhat simple to solve.

Israel wants no more rocket attacks.
Hezballah wants it's people returned.

Informations seem to indicate about 10,000 rockets.
Informations seem to indicate about 10,000 prisoners.

My proposal is this:

For each prisoner released by Israel, Hezballah destroys a rocket.


Does this sound reasonable as regards specifically the current conflict?

1. Problem is Hezballah wants a lot more than just a prisoner exchange...

...but at least your solution doesn't require bombing civilians, ambulances, and UN outposts just because the enemy is rumored to be hiding among them.

3. But...
At least a prisoner exchange would be a vast improvement.
And no more rockets landing in Israel would would also be a vast improvement.

It may also change the tenure of the current diplomatic circumstance.

4. No.
It would only effect the here and NOW.
And perhaps from that point the other small matters could be dealt with.

5. Locking
HOW WE WILL BE HANDLING DISCUSSION OF THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT FROM THIS POINT FORWARD

Discussions involving Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Hezbollah, Hamas, et al. must once again take place in the Israel/Palestine forum and must abide by the rules of that forum.

Discussions of the Middle East conflict may take place in the Latest Breaking News forum providing that they abide by the rules of that forum.
Please don't send us complaints that the subject has been "banished" to the "basement."
