Will We Go to War for Israel? :
Listening to Newt Gingrich bloviate on Meet the Press, advocating U.S. intervention on Israel's behalf against Syria and Iran - and the pathetic Joe "Me Too" Biden effectively agreeing with him - one can only wonder how or why anybody listens to these crazies.

Americans Want U.S. Out of Mid-East War:
Many adults in the United States believe their government should not become involved in the current dispute between Israel and its neighbours, according to a poll by SurveyUSA. 55 per cent of respondents think the U.S. should not attempt to negotiate a ceasefire, and 84 per cent reject a military intervention.

Abu Ghraib Rewarded
William Haynes II, the Pentagon's general counsel, has been closely involved in shaping some of the Bush administration's most legally and morally objectionable policies, notably on the use of torture. The last thing he is suited to be is a federal judge, but that is just what President Bush wants to make him. The Senate has been far too willing to rubber-stamp the president's extreme judicial nominees. But there is reason to hope that strong opposition to Mr. Haynes, including from the military, may block this thoroughly inappropriate choice.

Propaganda on every channel
Well, thanks to the internet other perspectives on reality are available and there is no need to waste my beautiful mind on propaganda and interview/photo-ops of politicians lying their asses off to the viewers. But, hey, the fare on the internet pretty much tells me what I already know about Bush, Israel, blah-blah.

Is U.S. Winning? Army Chief Is at a Loss - During a Capitol Hill briefing for an audience mostly of congressional aides, Schoomaker paused for more than 10 seconds after he was asked the question — lips pursed and brow furrowed — before venturing: "I think I would answer that by telling you I don't think we're losing."

Beirut families with nowhere to go 16 Jul 2006 Since the beginning of the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon, thousands of Lebanese citizens and foreigners have left the country. Some residents are escaping to join relatives in the mountains to escape the bombardment. But others like Abu Mohammed and his family have nowhere else to go.

Rice Defends Israel, Calls Criticisms of Bush Policy 'Grotesque' Secretary of State [war criminal] Condoleezza Rice rejected the notion that U.S. operations in Iraq have shaken Middle East stability, arguing, "Those hostilities were not very well contained, as we found out on Sept. 11, and so the notion that somehow policies that finally confront extremism are actually causing extremism, I find grotesque." (Perhaps you can sit through this lying wench's video. I could not. The only time I wish to see her and George S again is at their trial for treason.)

Israeli strikes on Lebanon kill 42 Israeli air strikes killed 42 people across Lebanon on Monday, raising the death toll since Israel's offensive to 204, all but 14 of them civilian.

***********************************************************
Nothing but anti-Arab racism can fully explain the behaviour of the Israelis
As we witness the bombardment by Israel of Lebanon and Gaza - a grotesque over-reaction - and, as the death toll of Arab civilians mounts, you have to ask how the Israelis can do what they do. My only answer now is to conclude that it is racism. No political or territorial struggles can convincingly explain or excuse the maddened onslaught by the Israeli state.

Hezbollah, the United States and the Context Behind Israel's Offensive on Lebanon
As Israeli warplanes continue to bomb Lebanon and Hezbollah fires rockets into northern Israel we get context on the crisis with two analysts: As'ad AbuKhalil, a Lebanese professor of political science at California State University and Chris Hedges, a senior fellow at The Nation Institute and the former Middle East bureau chief for The New York Times.
This is a must listen report

Israelis are dying: it must be an escalation
Here we go again -- more than 130 Lebanese dead after five days of savage aerial bombardment from at least 2,000 sorties by Israeli war planes that are making the country's south a disaster zone and turning Beirut into a crumbling ghost town. Those dead, most civilians and many of them women and children, hardly get a mention, their lives apparently empty of meaning or significance in this confrontation.

'If our Prime Minister is crying, what are we to do?' The few who were not lying in their basements ran shrieking through the streets - not gunmen, but women with screaming children, families holding suitcases, desperate to leave the heaps of broken buildings, entire apartment blocks smashed to bits, the roadways covered in smashed balconies and torn electrical wires.
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article14016.htm
***********************************************************
The Final Say
Hezbollah, from my experience, is no mere cat's paw of Syria and Iran, but a fiercely independent-minded movement that is Lebanon's dominant political and military force. Though backed by Tehran and Damascus, Hezbollah pursues its own local interests, sometimes in opposition to its allies.

Gods among Ordinary Men (Doubt 'theGods' consider us that highly)
Bush and his cadre of neo-conservatives may think that they are above the law and that they can act with impunity and without consequences. They may think of themselves as Gods who operate above the strata of ordinary mortals, as the result of their socioeconomic privilege. That is because other people have always born the cost of their wrong doing.

Around 60,000 refugees from the south of Lebanon and the southern suburbs of Beirut have arrived in the capital. Many of these refugees have said that the villages in the south of Lebanon are full of people who are unable to leave as roads are being bombed and bus convoys attacked.

The west must recognise that Israel's agenda is in conflict with its own :
Whatever else can be said for or against Israel's escalation of military action against Lebanon, there is little prospect that it will achieve its stated objectives. If Israel couldn't defeat Hizbullah after 18 years in which its army occupied large swaths of Lebanese territory, it is not going to succeed with air strikes and blockades, or even another occupation.

Syria In Their Sights :
Three years ago, the U.S. invasion of Iraq was widely viewed as the first chapter of a region-wide strategy to redraw the entire map of the Middle East. After Iraq, Syria and Iran would be the next targets, after which the oil-rich states of the Arabian Gulf, including Saudi Arabia, would follow.
