The Forgotten War

No, not that one. This one. If not quite "forgotten," then perhaps the "Back-Burner War" is more appropriate. Anyone besides me get the feeling that the architects, enablers, and apologists are getting a bit bored with all the "hard work" required in Iraq? Yes, it's good to see these party faithful beginning to speak out publicly (if they were dubbed "traitors" or "appeasers" today by the usual suspects, I must have missed it), but if that boredom and weariness is replaced by another excellent adventure we'll have an exponentially larger problem on our hands. Yet that seems to be the dynamic behind the exhortations from the Kristols, Krauthammers, Ledeens, etc. These days the "faster, please" bon mot reminds me of a seventeen year-old steroid-addled adolescent, at home on a Saturday night without a date, furiously pounding on a game-console handset in search of the next bad guy who never appears on the screen fast enough. Will our own Nintendo Warriors have the run of the house all night, or will the adults come home early and shut the game off?

I've always wondered what would happen when foreign policy was run by those who came of age in the hyperactive, ADD '70's and '80's.

I have been watching with dismay Bushes action or better said non-action in Lebanon. I think that this will come back to haunt us in the future.

Basically he is telling everyone that the live of an arab is worth less than nothing, and slaughter of them is just fine and dandy.

Go Israel go, shoot them up, grind them up and reduce them back to the stone age.

I also think Israel will one day perhaps wake up that this is no way to create safety for one's citizens.

What is the difference between what we are seeing now and what Hitler did to Poland almost 70 years ago?

I'll bet anything that if Lebanon was doing this to Isreal the US Marines would have landed yesterday, Bolton would have been all over the UN to stop this state terroristic attack and the american media would be screaming genocide.

But it is arabs that are dying so that is ok with everyone. What a christian morality. It makes a person with morality ashamed to be a christian.

In closing I would just like to comment about the photo that shows jewish children writing messages on bombs. I have seen excuses that they don't realise what they are doing. I beg to differ. These children are living in a very militarized society and understand very well what these bombs can do. But the hatred against the arabs is taught them from the cradle.

One only has to see how the israeli arabs are treated in every way.

2 anon's before me - The Poles weren't a hate group who vowed the death of Germany and made it a habit of blowing up German citizens in Berlin.

TCR - Good to see that we're in "the last throes of the insurgency", eh.

Oh, and in case I wasn't clear, I was referring to Hezbollah, not Arabs in general.
