UN Resolution Means Trouble for Israeli PM

Leaving Hizballah terrorists to be watched by Lebanese and UN forces isn't just a bad decision for Israel, but also for Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

From Haaretz:
If Olmert runs away now from the war he initiated, he will not be able to remain prime minister for even one more day. Chutzpah has its limits. You cannot lead an entire nation to war promising victory, produce humiliating defeat and remain in power. You cannot bury 120 Israelis in cemeteries, keep a million Israelis in shelters for a month, wear down deterrent power, bring the next war very close, and then say - oops, I made a mistake. That was not the intention. Pass me a cigar, please.
Haaretz has the reputation of being left of center.
