Israel and Hizbollah to talk prisoner swap

A Turkish news website is reporting that Hizbollah has agreed to discuss a prisoner swap - their two civilians, a doctor and his son, for the two Israeli soldiers. This was what started this mess. Why is the western media ignoring this (the Globe, CBC, canada.com and what not are all focussed on all that generous aid the US is sending to Lebanon).

I guess they’re too focussed on their efforts to publicize Condoleeza Rice’s so-called ceasefire proposal (the one where Israel gets to occupy parts of southern Lebanon and Hizbollah has to disarm entirely).

They’ll set it up for the next chapter which will begin with Hizbollah rejecting the US proposal and end with more missiles and shells raining down on Lebanon, killing more women and children.

That too, though is Hizbollah’s fault because of course they’re using the entire population of Lebanon as “human shields”.
