Cracked Cedar

Holy shit!

Hezbollah turned out a protest in Beirut today with hundreds of thousands ... let me repeat, hundreds of thousands of people today.

How could things have flipped so disastorously for those of us who support secular democracies?

Oh yeah ... Olmert unleashed the Israeli Defense Forces on the People of Lebanon and their infrastructure. George Bush said, "Go get em" and turned a blind eye to the hundreds of deaths wrought down on Lebanese civilians, many women and children. Predictably the most nationalistic voice in Lebanon has benefitted.

Now we are reaping the rewards of yet another wrong-headed policy.
