Some things never change……

Top U.S. and European officials called Wednesday for an end to the violence in Israel and Lebanon and the establishment of an international force to keep the peace – but they did not unanimously call for an immediate cease-fire or provide details on the proposed force.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who had been under pressure to lean on Israel to end its two-week-old offensive, maintained that any cease-fire must be “sustainable” and that there could be “no return to the status quo ante.”Her wording suggested continued U.S. support for Israel’s demand that the violence must end with the Hezbollah militia disarmed or at least removed from its border.

“We are working toward a cease-fire that would not allow a re-establishment of the status quo … where Hamas could launch rockets,” Rice said. “It’s obvious that a cease-fire should take place as soon as possible but we want a cease-fire that is durable and sustainable.”

Perhaps the press should just cut and paste the comments from the Lebanon war…… just never changes
