New York Times Aims to Undermine Resupply of Israel. And Misses. Plus the Beauprez and Blackwell Campaigns.
Resupplying out ally is a very good thing, and giving priority to the weapons most likely to minimize civilian casualties is also a very good thing.
The Times spin is in graph 2:
The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign in a way that could be compared to Iran’s efforts to arm and resupply Hezbollah.
I think we’ll take our chances with that comparison getting legs outside of possibly the New York Times and Los Angeles Times. I look forward to the public’s reaction to any paper that throws in with the Iran:U.S. or even the Hezbollah:Israel analogy. Given the Los Angeles Times’ collective effort to test bottom on circulation, though, you never know.
After your visit to Townhall.com, be sure to catch up with Victor Davis Hanson’s latest on how the Bush Adminsitration policy in the Middle East is working.
Perhaps the NorthernAllianceRadio elite will tackle the subject of resupply today, esepcially given Col. Austin Bay’s scheduled appearance. (And Ed Morrissey will no doubt be breifing the audience on his meeting with Karl Rove.) The show gets underway at noon EST and runs until 4 pm EST. Listen online here.
Finally this weekend, stop by the web sites for the two most important gubernatorial campaigns in the U.S.:
These campaigns are for the leadership the two red states one oe both of which Hillary will need to go blue if she has a shot in 2008. The left is pumping big bucks into both the Rocky Mountain and Buckeye states, so your contributions in both battlegrounds are urgently needed.
