mlah The “culture” that has evolved here isn’t conducive to sissies

the war in the mideast rages on.

hizballah has claimed they will not release the two kidnapped israeli soldiers unless israel also releases a few ‘raiders’ captured while conducting raids in israel

so let’s get this straight. hizballah launches raids into israel. the raiders attack their targets, kill unarmed civilains as hostages while trying to flee israel. (including women and children) and then they are captured.

so hizballah launches more raids into israel. captured soldiers, which is a further act of war. and then demands a prisoner swap.

sounds to me like israel should capture some hizballah officials, in lebanon, take them to israel. and then demand a soldier swap.

but if israel did it, it would somehow enrage the international community who sit idly by and wacth hizballah do it all the time.


so the war continues. i’m still hopeful that israel will drive north through lebanon, into the beka’a and squash hizballah mercilessly. then turn right into syria itself and do the same thing there. it would draw fire away from iraq, and put the ba’athists out of office there. hopefully.

they should book. just lay waste to the military infrastructure there.

but new movements are afoot. syria and spain are calling for a ceasefire. big surprise there. let us atatck you. and attack you. and attack you. and when you get tired of it and return fire, hold off a sec! let’s have a cease fire, which we will of course violate shortly, but hold the document up to the world with your signature on it, claiming you won’t attack anymore.

it is not in israel’s interest to cease fire. it is in israel’s interest for hizballah to vanish, in whatever way it can be brought about. it would be even better if the regime in syria changes too.

spain is being used by syria. not only is syria getting them to call for a ceasefire, they demanding that the golan be returned as part of the deal. y’all do know that the syrians used to lob artillery fire into tel aviv from the golan heights? israel can’t let that go.

the only vredible plan i’ve seen involves nato placing troops on the lebanese-israeli border to enforce the peace.

won’t work! missiles will be launched over the troops. hizballah will just use the nato troops as a deterrent to israel launching raids into lebanon. hizballah launching raids into israel? why? with nato troops on the border, they present a much more lucrative target than israelis.

that’s why israel will go along with that plan. get nato to take casualties in an effort to draw nato firmly onto the side side opposing hizballah.

putting nato troops on the border between israel and lebanon is the worst possible thing for nato.

the best thing is to let israel handle hizballah, as they are more than capable of doing.

i just wish the lebanese government could have used this as an opportunity to get rid of hizballah as well.


  1. No, you are wrong! You have been duped by Zionist propaganda! Israel is levying collective punishment! Shame on W for starting this illegal war! People like you have turned our country into a Nazi concentration camp! Bleargh!

  3. I’m certain this whole crisis was caused by the oil companies in order to push up prices.

    I’m kidding.

  4. Jeff, dontcha know SOMEONE has to raise their voice for the oppressed Left in our country? Someone has to represent all those people whose rights are being taken away, whose freedoms are being denied, whose liberties are being trampled upon by Bushco and his evil cabal. I take it upon myself to do so every once in a while, since resident Leftist troll Gus doesn’t come out to play as much as he once did. Oddly, Gus started out being from Michigan, like you (hmmmm……), before he declared himself in New York.

    I threw off Mlah’s dad a couple of times with my empathetic channeling of the downtrodden Leftists, so now I identify such delusional periods by ‘end of moonbattery’ symbology (e.g., /moonbat).

  5. And by the way, shadow President John F’in Kerry declared that the Lebanon crisis would never have happened were he rightfully ensconced in the White House. Ergo, this is all W’s fault.

  6. I’m old enough to know sarcasm when I see it… but I sure missed that one! LOL As for John Kerry, he has been retro-campaigning since the last election… with the same old dead message.
