U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice speaks during a press briefing at the State Department in Washington, July 21, 2006. Rice said she would head to the Middle East on Sunday but dismissed growing pressure for an immediate cease-fire between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon.
How does one dismiss a cease fire? By condoning indiscriminate mass destruction and death. It's all good because in the end, Israel intends to occupy all of Lebanon, annex it, control it. The US's favorite lap dog is on the hunt, and master is beaming with pride...
Think back to the time when Turkey invaded Cyprus to protect it's citizens living there. Mission accomplished- "oh by the way we're staying, just in case of any more Greek aggression towards Turkish Cypriots..."
How many Jews in Lebanon? Few I suppose.. But hey two priceless Israeli soldiers were kidnapped, a few others killed recently. Punish all who live in Lebanon, not to mention the countries straining their resources as they try to care for the refugees. American tax dollars at work- funding Israeli terrorism against Lebanon. How does any American not bristle at the thought of this bullshit? Don't be surprised if there's a new welfare state added to the US' payroll- "The Israeli Republic of Southern Lebanon".
Folks, if there ever was a threat to Mid-East peace, it's name is Israel. Their recent reaction to the kidnapping of two soldiers is akin to an infant poking a pit bull in the nose, and getting it's face ripped off for it.
Meanwhile, nearly 20 Turkish soldiers are killed by Kurdish terrorists recently, yet Turkey has shown exemplary temperament, patience and restraint. I do not favor a Turkish military incursion into Iraq, Iran or Syria to "dry out the root" of the Kurdish terrorists- people will die on both sides... But if the Turkish government deems such an operation as necessary, then I will support the decision without exception. We must put faith in our leadership and their decisions.
