Well, duh...

...is about all one can say about this little tidbit from Mahmoud Komati, deputy chief of Hezbollah's political arm, in the news today:

"The truth is -- let me say this clearly -- we didn't even expect (this) response.... that (Israel) would exploit this operation for this big war against us."

Gosh, what a concept. A nation growing tired of incessant terrorist acts committed against its citizens, that hears little from its "neighbors" except calls for its destruction, chooses to react vigorously to yet another terrorist act? How dare they?

I've heard and read enough from Muslims/Arabs and their apologists about "Zionist brutality." They complain about Israel's "atrocities" and seem perfectly happy with the idea that Israel should be wiped off the map. They misrepresent history and try to cloak virulent antisemitism is high-flown language.

Hundreds of Lebanese would still be alive, and their land would not have been attacked, if they had simply done what the United Nations ordered them to do, which was to kick the terrorists out of their country. They didn't; now, they pay for it.

But in this instance, as in every other since its founding, the UN is pursuing a course of pious talk and no enforcement.

I have nothing against either Arab nations or Muslims, so long as they live in peace with others and accept the rights of people of all religions, races and backgrounds to exist without fear.

But any group or country that feels the need to destroy the Jewish state is no better than Adolf Hitler and his Nazi followers. It is they who should be wiped off the map....

If Islam truly is a peaceful religion, it needs to clean its own house. To remain silent in the face of the barbarism committed in its name is to support that inhuman behavior; those who choose this path should not be surprised when they are attacked.

the UN is a freakin joke and moast people should wake up to that fact and kick them the hell out of the United States. Why is Israel seen as the bully by the world at large. They are the ONLY country who takes no shit from anyone!

Can ya tell I am still seething over the camp ordeal? LOL.

Duh is right. Other people are not suppose to be upset when you blow them up or whack off their heads. These people are insane.

Another thing....Rudy Guiliani the former mayor of NY did not let the Un walk all over the laws of NY. I had read years ago how he made all those foriegn diplomats and ambassadors pay their parking tickets. I hear he is running for president in the next election. I hope he wins.

Go Rudy!

This one really puzzles me. Apparently the main thing that has the usual suspects showing only one side of this event is that the US sold Israel the weapons, therefore it is all wrong.
I do find it odd that Lebanon isn't the one waging the war on Hezbollah. It does my heart good after all these years to see more and more people calling the UN for what it is. Certainly that building could be put to better use.
Amazing. What a surprise, the bastard is getting some of his own back, and he's in shock. Those people are insane. It is cultural and maybe genetic. I don't care if that does sound bigoted. Look at the track record.

leaving a comment here is like a sobriety test.
