Israel announces a unilateral ceasefire without any of its alleged military objectives been fully met but Olmert declares victory. Oh, yeah Gilad Shilat is still a prisoner of the Hamas run Gaza Strip.
I am barely awake and will post more on why this is another strategic defeat for Israel and one entirely of its own making. In the meantime, the Jerusalem Post reports 10 more missiles have been launched against Israeli civilians after the unilateral ceasefire has been implemented by the Israeli government. Some victory.
