A really depressing piece by John Keegan in the Telegraph. He writes about the inevitable attack by Israel on Hezbollah before Xmas. John Keegan knows his stuff.
I now find it almost impossible to settle on an opinion about these issues. Since the Prime Minister told us such untruths about the intelligence leading up to the decision to invade Iraq, I find it impossible to believe anything he says. How will we all react when there is another bloodbath in South Lebanon in a month's time when there is no national leader that anyone believes? The next few months are going to be a testing time for the Foreign Secretary and for William Hague, our Foreign Affairs spokeman. It might also be a testing time for the parties chief whips.
