Israel ground operation in Gaza inevitable?

Haaretz, Here ... and Laura Rosen "One would guess that could be part of what the US warship off the coast of Lebanon is about - to deter Hezbollah,... if Israel moves against Hamas in Gaza. Heard earlier today such operations would be in March-April, with desire for stabiliity to be restored by time of Israel's 60th anniversary celebrations in May when Bush plans to visit.... Then again, March is next week. So is a planned Rice visit to Israel. Jordan's King Abdullah II is here this week and next, after a meeting with the Saudi king en route to New York today. Olmert back to Israel Friday from Japan, where he seemed to overlap with Rice.... And it appears that Rice did meet with Olmert in Japan about Gaza situation, at her request."
