40,000 troops poised to enter Lebanon

From The Jerusalem Post 

The IDF General Staff postponed the expansion of ground operations in south Lebanon late Wednesday night, after the security cabinet earlier in the day approved a plan for a widened offensive that would take the army to the Litani River, over 20 kilometers from the border, and beyond, in an effort to prevent the incessant Katyusha rocket attacks on northern Israel.

40,000 IDF troops and reservists were massed along the northern border Wednesday evening in preparation for Israel’s largest and deepest ground incursion into southern Lebanon since the beginning of Operation Change of Direction last month.

Remember when Israel was being criticized for a too heavy handed response? It seems to me that If the IDF needs to continue to add more force to achieve their military objectives that the initial response was with too kind of a touch.
