Bush and Israel certainly got Chutzpah. I give 'em that much.
To blame Hezbollah for the destruction in Lebanon, for the deaths of so many civilians, is beyond Chutzpah. To actually believe it, is a sign of mental illness.
Yeah, yeah, sure, sure, we all know Hezbollah "started it" by launching an "incursion" into Israel and kidnapping a couple of Soldiers. Umm, let me repeat that: "Soldiers". Not Civilians, not Women and Children, but Soldiers.
But did Israel, with the Blessings of Fearless Leader, (I'm the Decider), Bush, have to attempt to bomb Lebanon back into the Stone Age?
The only explosions in Beruit were from Israel delivered bombs, US made, carried by US made planes, and US made helicopters.
Did any Hezbollah rockets land in Beruit? No. Only using the contorted logic of those who are "infallible" can one attempt to blame Hezbollah for the carnage in Lebanon.
Such hypocrisy and arrogance are beyond the range of sanity.
You can certainly blame Hezbollah for "starting" the current madness, but you cannot blame them for the damage inflicted upon Lebanon.
For that, the blame lies squarely with Israel, and the current United States Adminstration.
The blood of innocents covers your hands and your souls.
It makes me laugh, how some people are taken in by Lieberman and the rhetoric he and the Republican National Socialist Party, oh, sorry . . .
Anyway, Lieberman's, oh, sorry, SENATOR Lieberman's true colors are clear to see, now that some sun light is shining. Enough has been said elsewhere, about his sore loser attitude, and how, if he were a real Democrat, he would help to insure their victory in Connecticut.
But I cannot help but add my observation that one only has to look at who his main supporters are now: Republicans. Mehlman, Rove, and our own modern Nero, George W. hisself, who even planted a big wet on on Joe Boy's cheek.
I mean how watershed events on the "terrorism" front always seem to happen at a time when Bush administration people are beating one drum or another, usually over the head of some hapless Democrat or a real patriot, foolish enough to stick their head up and speak out.
So the Bush administration tells us we must "stay the course".
If we don't then they tell us we advocate "cut and run".
Typical of Karl Rove (the unindicted co-confabulator), these tactics seek to cast the issue in terms that appear favorable to them.
We are told, insistantly, that any "set time table" works to the "enemy's advantage", in that they only have to hold out until we leave.
To the contrary, I state that having no "set timetable" may actually work to the "insurgents" advantage, in that they know they can simply continue their low level, low cost, tactics, and slowly bleed us to death.
They know they cannot defeat the US Military machine, head on, and their only hope is to kill us with "a thousand cuts".
So, the longer we stay there, the more cuts they can inflict.
The longer we stay, the more our overstressed troops will fall victim to anger and frustration and stumble, as some have already, apparently, who are now facing Courts Martial.
The longer we stay, the more billions of dollars we pour down a sand hole, with no hope of recovery. Dollars that could better be spent combating the roots of discontent here and abroad.
