It is a terminal disease over in the Middle East to not be a radical. May he RIP

And yet Kerry, with a straight face, offered Israel to surrender its position to become a part of the "Regional Security Arrangement", or something like that. I doubt that future looks promising to Israelis, who already experienced much more of that, than Kerry was ever able to think of.

This is when I miss Reagan and Thatcher the most. before they could swallow, the US would be bombing the hell out of them.

Sunnis and Shias and no peace in sight. Guess which party Obama is backing? If he was smart he would leave them to it.

Very sad. Unfortunately, this seems to be a daily thing anymore. May they rest in peace.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Nabih Bulos. The death of Mohamad Chatah will be a loss felt for many years in Lebanon and is a tragic loss for the The Future Movement. Read and sadly noted.

This atrocity has all the hallmarks of an Hezbollah attack. Anyone who professes to be a moderate in most Arab countries has a very short life expectancy.
Allan and Stardust. You are of course right but it's too late now to even try to keep these maniacs in check.

Alan, Stardust, and Stan: And what would that accomplish, besides making us even more hated worldwide, and killing an uncountable number of innocent people? There have got to be better ways.

Joanne. Name one. It's the continuous weakness displayed by the West that has emboldened these savages.
And it's not over by a long way.

I wouldn't put it past the CIA to be doing this. They are masters at destabilizing whole regions. In Nicaragua they dressed as the Sandanista's and murdered whole villages to get the desired result. Remember Iran Contra? If there isn't enough tension in an area to get our military involved the CIA will make it so.

tabatha's comments are the best here.
why would hezbollah use a bomb and kill innocents?
they have the capabilities to walk up to you no matter where in the world you are and shoot you in the face.
killing the innocent is more up to par with al-qaeda and the government of the occupied lands, not hezbollah.

Hesbola boys are under attack recently, with some of them being blown to pieces by other bombs, Justin.

Killing innocents is not something new to Hesbola - they bombed sleeping US peace-keepers in Beirut, they blew up Jewish centers worldwide, and they don't mind throwing a disabled passenger into the sea. Killing armed opponents is much less fun for them, Israelis gave them a good run a couple of years ago.
