Strategic Victory

A piece of paper from the UN is not a strategic victory. Taking Damascus is a strategic victory.

There is something very confusing going on here. I can't quite put my finger on it, but my instincts tell me that Israel would have known that the ceasefire was rubbish and that they forced it through for reasons still unclear. We all know that the ceasefire will be violated - this is already happening.

Is Israel looking for a pretext to act against Syria? Why am I thinking along these lines?

I suspect they're just looking to act, now with quasi UN approval, when the Hizb violate the cease fire (I didn't even take 24 hours before that happened).
