Hezbollah

Israel and your neo-cons have set up Condi as the world's pinata.

Mr. President,
Although every time you let Israeli loving neo-cons tell you what to do you wind up with shit on your face, it's Condi who has become the world's pinata this week.

Israel must have been planning this offensive into Lebanon for a while. Hezbollah was caught off guard. They didn't think Israel would over react to the degree they did. The practice of
kidnapping then exchanging soldiers has dated back to 1948. It is nothing new.

In July, 1996 Hizballah released the bodies of two Israeli soldiers Joeseph Fink and Rahamin Alsheich for 123 Lebanese soldiers.

In June, 1998 Hizballah returned the body of Sergeant First-class Itamar for the bodies of 40 Hizballah soldiers.

In January, 2004 Israel released 436 prisoners including 400 Palestinians 23 Lebanese two Syrians three Moroccans three Sudanese a Libyan and a German Muslim plus the bodies of 59 Lebanese soldiers in exchange for three Israel soldiers and an Israeli spy Sheikh Abdel Kareem Obaid.

There have many other Israeli prisoner exchanges with Palestinians the PLO Hamas over the years.

"According to the Ramallah-based Mandela Institute for Human Rights, there is 9,600 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails and detention centers, among them 130 Palestinian women. Defense for Children International puts the number of Palestinian children in Israeli custody at 388."

So why did Israel react violently this time?

The early press dispatches from Israel indicated they considered their incursion into Lebanon a "Blitzkrieg" fashioned attack. Israel's plan fell apart pretty quickly after thousands of bombs and artillery shells failed to quell the number of rocket attacks from Hizbollah.

It is important to note, Hizbollah did not fie rockets until Israel began their bombing attack on Lebanon.

Although Hizbollah was surprised by the ferocity of Israel's response, they obviously dispensed their weapons and soldiers well throughout the southern area. They had dug and fortified tunnel systems. They also established back up communications methods which the Israelis underestimated.

The nonstop video of dead women and children pulled from the rubble has incensed the world. Although Israel makes, a point of stating they dropped leaflets prior to bombing the south of Lebanon to tell civilians to leave the area they refuse to guarantee safe passage out. Ambulances and caravans of people who had the means or the money to leave were routinely bombed; some would say intentionally. And indeed Israel has bombed all areas of Lebanon including the Christian north and the middle of the country not just the Hizbollah southern region.

The UN
observers who have been stationed in the neutral zone posts for years had been in direct contact with Israeli military, and it didn't help them. The UN observers called ten times in six hours telling Israel their shells were approaching their observation post. Each time the Israeli commander said they would stop, but they didn't, and four UN personnel were killed. Even the rescuers were fired on by Israel gunners. The UN was extremely upset by the apparent intentional targeting of the UN personnel but once again the United States stood against the rest of the world as they blocked a resolution condemn and initiating an investigate of the UN post bombing.

Condi thought she could eke out a cease fire when Hezbollah took the first step and offered to cooperate in a cease fire but Israel quickly dismissed it.

Although Israel rejected the offer, I bet Condi
thought she had something to work with. She must have been furious when Israel cut the legs out from under her efforts when they bombed the village of Qana and killed scores of women and children.

Lebanon's Prime Minister Seniora angrily told Condi to stay away from Lebanon until Israel stops their merciless bombing of Lebanon and its infrastructure.

She should have realized that U.S. neo-cons and Israel have always been joined at the hip. There is no way people like Cheney and his cabal of neo-conservatives or Israel will let her get anything accomplished. They love this war and see it as a major goal of their efforts to make Israel the ultimate power in the region regardless of just cause or Arab blood shed in the process.

Poor Condi is caught between parroting your message to support Israel and world pressure. She has become everyone's pinata.

The ramifications of your actions will affect mutual cooperation, trade agreements and social attitudes towards the U.S. for years to come. But you have never concerned yourself with what the world thought so why start now?

You have made America, so easy to hate as the world's pariah.

The phrase "George Bush and Israel, butchers of children," has a nice ring to it in Oslo.

As of now Israel said it is temporarily suspending the aerial attack to investigate their latest atrocity but they didn't say anything about a full cease fire. It's a nice feint, but that's all. Their repeated attacks on the West Bank and Gaza have given them lots of practice with pretending to care.

Israel may own the skies but Hezbollah owns the Arab world's heart.

Since you won't speak with Syria, I thought I should. I sent the Syrian ambassador to the United States, Imad Moustapha an e-mail asking him what it would take to get him to intervene in the Lebanese disaster.

Hizbullah is top dog in the area now. They were formed as a backlash to Israel's occupation in 1982 and this new invasion has only strengthened their hand. Israel seem to have mimiced your half-ass effort in Iraq by not committing enough troops to get the job done.


Condi's show on the road is just that, she should include a comedian and a singer or two to entertain her hosts iinstead. Maybe if she had a USO show with her, the Arab world would have allowed her to land in one of their countries rather than having her plans modified to hold her non-meeting in Rome instead.


Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabian Sunni-led governments are panicky. The Shiite-Hezbollah have become the heroes of the Arab world. The Saudis are distancing themselves from Washington and made a huge show of making multi-million aid
pledges for Lebanon and Palestinians.

Al Qaeda has recently also piled on and called for an all out war against Israel.


The divisive and symbiotic relationship America has with Israeli has already cost us dearly. I can't imagine to what heights the Arab world will go, to punish both countries in the future.

It is not just the Arab world that has increased their disdain for America. The U.S was alone again in utilizing the UN to keep the world body from denouncing the Israelis for the killing of UN observers and to call for a cease fire.

The U.S. is once again standing alone in the world.

John Bolton's confirmation in Congress should be interesting; he has done everything possible to bring the organization
down to its knees. He has withheld payments to the organization, obstructed reforms that the UN body wanted to undertake. He has also interrupted meetings he was not even invited to. According to a New York Times article,
story
"They say he combatively asserts American leadership, contests procedures at the mannerly, rules-bound United Nations and then shrugs off the organization when it does not follow his lead."


Ironically today you and Blair are putting together a UN
resolution for a new international stabilization force in Lebanon and calling for the disarming of militias.

You cite the need for UN help after previously obstructing the same body at every turn through your surrogate ambassador, and after Israel apparently
targeted the killing of unarmed UN observers.


I don't expect a reply from the Syrian ambassador, but I think I have done more than you to quell the violence.

Yak Yak Yak, bullshit lets blow something up!

Mr President,
I don't know why I bother trying to explain things to you. I guess I feel sorry for you.
You have led such a disconnected disassociated life from reality. You just can't relate to the real world of everyday people because you were never one of them. You are the Republican-neo-con version of Michael Jackson before he liked little boys.

I actually liked Michael Jackson's music. He was a good entertainer. Speaking of entertainment I like the balancing act your pro-Arab Mid East buddies are doing.

Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia are standing on a knife-edge, with their government's support for the U.S. pulling them one way and the support for Hezbollah and Hamas by the majority of people in their countries pulling them the opposite way.

Since Israel is known for overreacting it was not a surprise to have them bomb Lebanon over six days of nonstop artillery and missile attacks. Punish and kill the innocent for the sins of a few guilty people. It's the same thing they have done for years in Palestine. Over-reacting seems to be the norm in the Mid East for Israel and Arab nations alike.

The longer Israel continues to rain death upon the people of Lebanon the riskier it gets for your Arab supporters in the Mid East. It already created a fertile ground for future terrorists who will seek revenge against Israel and America.

Every day the bombing continues, increases the risk the citizenry of those countries may rise up against their pro-western governments.

They already looked weak by refusing to get more heavily involved in the Israeli- Palestinian crisis and by taking a sideline seat next to you on the Israeli -Lebanon conflict; they further show their powerlessness and impotence.

If there is one place you don't want to look weak; it is in the Middle East. Saddam was a bastard for a reason. Before you came along nobody shit in his oatmeal because the penalty was death. It is the same everywhere in the Arab world. Over reaction has been a staple of death for thousands of years.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan are
the only countries in the region who sided with you in rebuking Hezbollah and dismissing Israel's attacks on Lebanon.


Iran has become a major power broker in the region. It's a tough time to be a part of a Sunni-Muslim led government with the rise of Islamic militants throughout the region. There has always been a variable amount of anti-Israel feelings in the Mid East, but thanks to your occupation of Iraq, and the renewed Israeli attacks against Gaza and Lebanese citizens, anti-Israel fervor and conversely anti-U.S. sentiment has not been this high in decades. There is enough dry tinder to engulf the whole area in flames.

I thought your rejection of Lebanon's plea for cease-fire was especially tacky since you espoused support for the fledgling democratic government. Pro-western members of the Lebanese parliament said you promised to protect them against Syrian attack said Joshua Landis, a Middle East expert and professor at the University of Oklahoma. But, you didn't say anything about protecting them from Israel.

I suppose they are not used to getting their teeth kicked out after taking you for your word. Rookies! But, I heard you said that
pretty soon you will send Condi. I am not sure what she will do, but she may be on the way... some day.

Loved your
unguarded moments caught on tape with Lap Boy Blair. The swearing didn't bother me. The biggest embarrassment is just how classy you are when you talk with global leaders with a bread roll in your mouth. Your lack of manners is something else junior. Didn't your mother teach you anything?


"See the irony (chew chaw) is that what they need to do is (chew chaw) get Syria to get Hezbollah to (chew chaw) stop doing this shit and it's over," you told Blair as you chewed on a buttered roll. “I’m not going to talk too damn long like the rest of them. Some of these guys talk too long.” you continued.

bush

Given what I saw of your personal speaking style on that clip, I'm surprised I didn't hear you fart for emphasis. As far as talking too long. You're right. Why the hell do these leaders talk so much. What's so damn important that requires so much talking? Yak yak yak shit, let's blow something up! Cheney and Israel have a lot in common these days.
