ACT: SINGING
The troops will all be home within a few days... the final orders came from Prime Minister Ehud Barak late yesterday... it is the end of a two-decades-long occupation of southern Lebanon most Israelis now see as a costly failure.
HEZ Israel's guerilla adversaries the Hezbollah have been celebrating too... planting their flag on abandoned fortifications.
BOOM The violence hasn't quite ended yet... Israel says it will retailiate fiercely if there are any attacks on retreating troops or on its border towns.
Still, at the moment it looks like Israel's long Lebanese nightmare may finally be nearing its end.
