  1. I would have to agree with you that Bush’s statement was ridiculous. While I think Israel did destroy some of Hezb’s infrastructure, they have done more harm to Lebanon than good. Certainly, Hezb has suffered a military set-back, but it will not be long. I think they will emerge stronger politically, especially if Nasrallah follows through on his overly optimistic (IMO) statement to aid people who lost their home in the rebuilding process. Militarily, they have no real concerns either, particularly if Iran and Syria keep feeding them weapons and money.

    That being said, I am not sure what the whole outcome of this will be. Israel may accomplish her goals in the long run. But it will be very costly!!! Both Israel and Hezb learned some important lessons during the war. I think the present cease-fire will not be long lived. I don’t see either side accepting the condictions for a peaceful resolution that will be acceptable to the other in the long run. Hezb will continue to dig in among the people and force Israel to fight a ground war (guerrilla style). This works to Hezbs advantage. In the air, they are no match for the IAF or Israel arseanl of missile (not to mention nukes), but on the ground – on their home turf – they can go toe-to-toe with Israel.

    I also see Syria, Iran and the US being drawn into the conflict. In fact, that may have been the plan from the get-go.

  2. Although it is not nice to use harsh words, but in the case of President Bush any word is not harsh enough.
    Sometimes I am truely at loss describing him. Is he simply, as Jay Lenno calls him over and over again, stupid… I wonder…
    Often I like to believe, for the sake of mankind, that he is simply kept in the dark. That information arriving to his desk are so filtered that he just recieves “la creme de la creme” of information. Thus, is not able to view the bigger picture.
    If the above two notions both do not represent Mr. Bush, then there is only one last description: The world, as we know it today, is at the hands of a sadistic war maniac for the next 2 years
