And why it won't work. From the Boston Globe:
Israel is sending ``mixed messages" -- saying its target is not the Lebanese government, but at the same time hammering Lebanese infrastructure and accusing the government of harboring a terrorist group.
By hitting infrastructure, some analysts said, Israel is repeating a strategy it has used for years without winning peace: trying to press the wider population to disavow a militant group because of the punishment it attracts.
Israel has bombed roads and bridges, saying the purpose is to block arms shipments from Syria, but reporters have entered Lebanon from Syria along alternate routes that could just as well carry a truckload of missiles.
The punitive bombings continued today as downtown Beirut was struck for the first time.
