Another Fine Mess

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power’’
—Abraham Lincoln
I'm sure it won't be long now until the U.S. comes to the rescue of Israel. Not that they need any rescuing. I'm confident we won't be aiding the Lebanese. It's just in our best interests to keep our hand in the mideast's cookie jar. I'm also pretty sure the rest of the world will realize that something is backwards, despite the protestations of Rush Limbaugh.

I can't imagine what the world powers were thinking after World War II. What genius thought it might be a great idea to take Palestine from the Palestinians and drop the Jews from all over the world into a hornets' nest. Smack dab in the middle of every Arab nation in the world. I'm guessing they didn't want them anywhere in Europe. I'm also guessing that since God promised that holy land in the mideast to them a long time ago, they were determined to hold Him and every one else to it. They turned down a number of equally desolate desert areas which wouldn't have been nearly as suicidal.

And now our peaceful nation is more or less encouraging the Israelis to perform genocide on the Lebanese, never mind that Hezbollah is the supposed target. Yes, the nefarious bastards do hide amongst the civilian population with their Katyusha rocket launchers, and yes, the Lebanese government was supposed to drive out Hezbollah, but they do such a damned swell job taking care of the people, why would you throw them out? They've won the hearts and minds of the people already. They are represented in the government and provide a great deal of humanitarian aid that otherwise wouldn't exist. They are inextricably linked to everything. Even if they are a cancer, how can they be cut out without killing the patient?

Even by doing nothing for 13 days, we're supporting the heartless collateral damage. Actions speak louder than words...that is unless you don't act at all. Silence speaks for itself.
