Lebanon warns militants: Surrender or else

Things are heating up in Lebanon...

From CNN:
Lebanon's defense minister issued an ultimatum Wednesday to Islamic militants barricaded in a Palestinian refugee camp to surrender or face a military onslaught, as the army reinforced its positions, raising fears of what could be a bloody showdown.

Fighters from the al Qaeda-inspired Fatah al-Islam militant group vowed not to give up and to resist any Lebanese assault.
You have to like their attitude, this is the only language they understand. You must negotiate from a position of strength. Now, if they defy them we will see if they mean what they say. If not they will show weakness and be doomed.
