Newsflash, Israel is losing...
Billmon strikes again!
This is like a scene from a bar fight, where one of the pugalists makes sure his friends have a good strong hold of him, and then starts yelling "let me at him!"
I haven't even had time to check in on the Israeli target practice in Lebanon... So they are as we used to say in the "hood," getting their ass handed to them huh?
Well Billmon has put up one of his classics... My favorite quote:
All the bellicose rhetoric in the world -- like Schiff's threat to respond with "cruel craziness" if and when other red lines are crossed in the future -- can't conceal the failures: of a miltary aristocracy's arrogant faith in technology, of an Army that's grown accustomed to waging war against Palestinian teenagers, of a political establishment that believes with zombie-like intensity that the cure for incompetence is ever greater applications of military force. (Italics mine)
Interesting. I wonder what "Kimmy," is thinking now... Funny how after all the cheerleading from the right, the justification on civilian deaths, and all the rest, it appears that Israel is being bested by a rag tag group of terrorist. And yea they are terrorist, and yea I believe Israel has the right to fight terrorist who are killing their citizens, but this particular implementation of the so called "Bush Doctrine," is as bankrupt and and morally questionable as what we have done to Iraq... The neocons who created and supported these wars, always from a safe distance of course, will go down in history as the cowards who thrived on conflict, but lost... Yeah LOST. Because no matter how you size it up, other than a full scale invasion of Lebanon, followed by a nuking of Iran and possibly Syria, is the only way the Israelis can win this conflict, and in winning, they will lose any hope for future peace.
