Welcome back to the Valley of the shadows weekly, Politics or Policy! Here is where we discuss issues (domestic and international) and offer a space, for you, the reader, a chance to talk with the author on them. Consider this an open phone line. Johnny, strike up the band and here we go........
A) Cease-fire Agreement between Israel and Hezbollah or The Return of Bibi - Policy - The agreement created by the United Nations (where the infamous "Zionism is Racism" was made policy). Congratulations United Nations! You have now made a Non-Governmental organization [NGO] equal to a state. All Israel wants (and has wanted until Olmert), is recognition and cessation of hostilities. Neither are offered by this agreement. Because Olmert waited to let loose the IDF in Lebanon, more Iranian missiles flew into the only functioning democracy in the Middle East (Iraq is still in Act One of it's democracy). The cease-fire is a farce. Let me be the first Blogger to say: Bring Back Bibi!
B) Mike Wallace's umbrella - Politics - Mike Wallace of CBS' 60 minutes (home of Rathergate) was very complacent with the Iranian President. He would ask about the statements of destroying Israel but would not follow up. 60 Minutes (and the democrats of CT) are the new Neville Chamberlains. God help us if they are elected. [Ed. note: After Labor Day, the reasons will be posted why the Dem's will not win again in 2006 or 2008]
C) Worse then 9/11 - Policy - When the plot was discovered, Burbank Airport shut down until Noon. But given what we know now, why are the Democrats still opposed to any chance at security? The difference between the reality-based community and the moonbats are those who understand that 9/11 was a continuation of attacks upon America, not an aberration. Iraq and Lebanon are better battlegrounds then Universal Citywalk or San Francisco.
Thank you and good night!
Your writing, while not always my favorite subject, is quite eloquent and intelligent.ReplyDelete

Ice Princess I agree about the ceasefire. The only ceasfire that Israel hsd ever entered into that held for a long duration of time occured in 1948 and was with the Jordanians who concluded an armstice on the battlefield truce which held for nineteeen years.ReplyDelete
It is well established that Israeli forces and the Arab Legion concluded an armstice on the ground during the 1948 Israeli War for Independence. This armistice was ultimately approved by the governments of Isarel and Jordan. This argeement endured untill the Six Days War of 1967.
