The Silence of the Dilettantes

Thursday, July 13, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

I don’t often visit the HuffingtonPost as I think only O’Donnell and Kaplan are significant beyond the fever swamp.

Today though I wanted to see what the respectable hard left (as opposed to Kosputin and his kids) were saying about Israel under seige and fighting back.

And the answer is…nothing.  Go see for yourself.  The region teeters on a wide scale war and the left cringes at the thought of having to declare.  (Kosputin et al don’t have much to say either.)


Blogging from Lebanon

Thursday, July 13, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Lebanese Bloggers has a series of posts on the crisis well worth reading. (HT: WindsofChange.)

Many Lebanese clearly feel that they are being unfairly punished for Hizbollah’s deeds, but the presence of Hizbollah in the governing cabinet and the terrorist organization’s refusal to disarm –acquiesced in by the government– inevitably makes Lebanon a partner, however unwilling, of Hizbollah.

Hizbollah’s rockets have killed an Israeli woman and continue to fall on Israel.  I expect escalation as Israel intends to send a message that kidnappings will never work again.

What would Americans demand of the government if scores of rockets from both Mexico and Canada were falling on San Diego and Seattle?
