Today’s War News

There’s not a lot of it.  A lot of diplomatic wrangling, with Siniora doing a sob-story song and dance for his fellows (they applauded the performance), along with hints that he might grow a spine and be willing to — gasp — actually deploy his nation’s army within its own borders in order to secure them.

Which is, after all, what the Israelis have wanted for fifteen years.  Maybe that’s why the Syrian delegate walked out in a huff during negotiations?

Meanwhile, Israel states that it’s going where it needs to in Lebanon.  Well, duh.  The Bekaa Valley, for starters, and raids on parts of Tyre, for seconds. 

While I still think that this will end with Syria selling HA down the river, there is, actually, a simple means by which Lebanon can end this whole thing.  All it has to do is convince it’s PM to grow a pair and get the army out of its barracks.  Once it does that, Siniora’s credibility will rise to a value above zero.  And yes, oh ye sons and daughters of Lebanon, that means that in order to stop a war by people who are trying to hijack your country and turn it into Iran Lite, somebody might actually have to get hurt.

Hat Tip:  All of these links from Pajamas Media, which is doing a kick-ass job.  Their “Reutersgate” itself is a major slap in the face for sloppy editing and reporting.  Would Reuters show blatantly Photoshopped images in order to engage in bias confirmation?  You betcha…
