That's an excellent example of drawing a big fucking arrow straight at the "de-humanizing" of the "enemy".

Walt's overall political theory is a little silly, but his judgement is essentially sound, and he's not a raving lunatic like Ledeen.  Can't ask for much more, really.

Bad luck, war fans.  Hezbollah ain't firing the rockets into north Israel, and I don't give a fuck what Haaretz or Marty Peretz or Daniel Pipes thinks.  Neither does the IDF, who are smart enough to realize that if Hezbollah was involved, they'd be firing closer to 250 rockets, not three. Hezbollah, Lebanon and Israel are all playing it cool.

As Abu Muqawama says  "Nobody's gonna hurt anybody. We're gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what's Fonzie like? Come on, Yolanda, what's Fonzie like?"

In fact, I thought the neighboring Arab governments are actually thinking this is a GOOD thing, or good enough to do nothing to help the Palestinians?  They've subdued their own citizenry from too much protesting over this, and it's been up the Arabs in Europe to hold that end up.

All because they view this as Iranian puppetry, rather than the "usual" Arab government shinanigans...

Yup.  Egypt don't like Hamas because Hamas grew out of the Muslim Brotherhood, who are their major internal threat.  Jordan doesn't care about Hamas because up to 75% of its population has Palestinian roots and it doesn't need Hamas running around radicalizing them, and Saudi Arabia don't care much for them either, because Hamas are trained and equipped by Hezbollah, which means there is a level of influence.  And if there is one country the Saudis cannot stand, its Iran.

Ironically, the guy who seems to be most concerned about some sort of peace deal is Sarkozy, who went out of his way to undermine the Czech presidency of the EU and their support for Israel.

Also, can you provide a link to the "non-rocket-firing" promoters?

Heh, Sarkozy.  He's like the anti-Putin.

LAYBRULL MAYDEA!

There are rockets, but only three.  Hezbollah can and would through a lot more than that.

And here's Haaretz, getting it totally wrong

Thanks.  I've got an old friend from Dubai who really gets into this kind of stuff.

Another big leftie wankfest in town: ghar, I don't know if I want to kick them in their monkey faces or sell them buttons and other cheap merchandise from some chinese sweatshop to make a bit of cash out of all this bullshit.
As it turned out today, I am apparently an insensitive asshole who not only doesn't care about innocent people suffering, no I am also a horrible human being with serious visual problems for not being sufficiently antisemitic.

Well, you do make a weird sentence there. Maybe that detector of yours is broken?
Just this one time, I'll help you out. See that slanty part? It's probably some form of sarcasm. I had a fun day with lots of angry people in it.

This is a discordian board. I find it's easier to just assume sarcasm unless explicitly stated otherwise.
