Long and Winding Road to Peace

(Associated Press)
The good news is that Hezbollah have agreed to a UN ceasfire plan. As have Israel.
The bad news is that they will do so when Israeli soldiers withdraw from Lebanon, which isn't actually helpful as a ceasefire, such as in the case, usually means immediate and unconditional cessation of hostilities from both sides.

Hopefully however, with the latest proposals from the UN being agreed to, at least in some theory, there is light at the end of this long tunnel.

Got to take you up on the title of your piece. Peace is not a destination. You don't just go there and stop. Peace is the way. Peace is not the abscence of hostilities, it's the way to acheive it.

Glad I've cleared that up for you. I see the airline restrictions have got a lot more stringent...

Thanks Lobster, with hindsight I concur :)
