10. Depend on what you mean by the word “cease”

9. Need to keep bombs dropping and bullets flying until, at least, after the Fall Mid-Term Elections

5. Need to destroy Lebanon to the point that only Halliburton would be qualified to get the rebuilding contract

4. Good opportunity to practice our evacuation procedures, in case New Orleans floods again before I leave office

2. Needs time to give Israel access codes to CIA Black Site Prisons for captured Hezbollah

1. Dick Cheney, William Kristol and the rest of the PNAC crowd hasn’t said its time yet
