I like the analysis, but where do things end?

Dr Pipes' comments ... there is a greater emphasis on analysis this time. In my view it is in the political interests of those pushing for aggression to keep up the fighting, whether it be the missile variety or propaganda. I think what we're all wondering now is, "What is the end-game this time?" I think that about now, with the usual 10-1 kill ratio, the formula is about right for a ceasefire, but I might be mistaken. Perhaps each side wants to go out with a bigger than usual hit before heeding a truce?
