"Stalemate" reached as Lebanese Army & Fath el Islam call for truce

Any which way you look at it, this means that the Lebanese Army is between a rock and a hard place. The Army's "honneur" was scarred when FeI drew first blood, but a desired military outcome against Al Qaedaesque elements is not attainable without a massacre of the hapless and innocent Palestinians. The ruling "clique" of Siniora opened a big can of worm, and now it reaps what it sowed. Lebanese Security officials have indicated that some of FeI's dead fighters (especially the Lebanese ones) have been identified as those inculpated in previous attacks against the Lebanese Army, but who were later bailed out for "political expediency" by the "establishment."
