World view only has eyes for Hezbollah

There is an old popular song where the words are dreamily crooned "I only have eyes for you". Such is the case for Kofi Annan and other world viewers when it comes to Hezbollah. As I watched events unfold last week culminating in a UN cease-fire resolution and "agreement" on both sides, it seemed many conservatives were disappointed at the turn of events. I understood where they are coming from. While I was on vacation and did not write about it, I had a different take on the deal. It was an opportunity for good on several fronts.

It was first and foremost an opportunity to disarm Hezbollah. In the amazing PR spin antics of Hezbollah during the conflict, they had spun themselves into a corner so far they had to "agree" to the cease-fire. They have an ARMY of DUPES that must be fed the line that they really are not terrorists, but "freedom fighters" with "humanitarian" interests. Why they build hospitals and schools and other things. (Somehow all the hospitals and schools and charitable deeds by the US government and private groups is meaningless). By all their antics including staging photos of dead children and wailers, Hezbollah gave the impression they were "for the people". So when the opportunity to cease hostilities "for the people" came along they were embarrassed into agreeing to it. They must be awfully confident that their army of dupes will cover for them when they break the agreement.

It was an opportunity for the world body (besides the US) to step up to the plate to deal with radical Islam. While the world did not have the fortitude or resolve to do anything about the problem of terror facing the world, they sat on the sidelines and chanted their cries of "Unilateralism" like monkeys in a zoo. This was the chance for countries like France, Germany, Russia and China to step up to the plate and actually contribute to world peace instead of acting against it by their chronic appeasement. France has especially been a disappointment. While I have engaged in poking fun at France's reputation for surrender, I recognize the history France and the US have enjoyed from our beginning. I concurred with LA Sunsett that this was a great opportunity for France to step up and shine. I also concur with him that their backing out of the deal is a huge disappointment.

Knowing the world would disappoint us all, I saw this as yet another opportunity to show how utterly impotent the United Nations is. They pass resolutions that they are either unwilling or utterly powerless to enforce. I think of the ridicule I have endured in my life for my religious faith. Yet when I think of all those around the world who have placed their faith in the United Nations, I realize that belief in the United Nation's ability to do any good whatsoever is nothing short of religious faith. It is truly a religous faith much more worthy of ridicule than mine.

A major point of the cease-fire agreement was that Hezbollah would be disarmed by the Lebenese army. When Hezbollah then told the Lebenese government not to even think about it, they caved. Somehow they concluded that concealed weapons is a great substitute for actual disarmament. (The Army of Dupes swallowed this with a straight face). Without the disarmament of Hezbollah, the cease-fire agreement is DEAD. Additionally, Hezbollah has begun to re-arm itself with arms from Syria and Iran. As I have stated before, this is their tactic during a cease-fire: to catch their breath and regroup. The army of dupes have fallen for it yet again.

So when Israel tries to enforce the cease-fire agreement (in the absense of the UN and France) by raiding an arms restocking initiative, what does Dopi Annan do? Does he admit his impotence? No. Does he call Hezbollah for their breach of the agreement? No. He criticizes Israel, of course. Kofi, like the Army of Dupes, looks at terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas like looking at a lover over a candlelight dinner. While violins play sweet music in the background, Kofi's foot strokes the leg of Hezbollah under the table and he whispers lovingly "I only have eyes for you."

    I say that Bush is on his own on this. If the Jews won it like you all said they will have no problem going back in and destroying what little is left of Lebannon. The rest of the world is laughing at Mr. Unilateral and the Jews False Pyrrhic victory.

    You Right Wing Bible Thumpers can ideNtify with this one Bush is "Reaping what he has sown"

    "THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT...THANK YOU FOR SCREWING UP EVERYTHING"

    I am beginning to think that RWA is actually a hastily written computer program that has a collection of sentences that are then randomly conglomerated together whether or not they have much to do with the subject at hand.

    Kindof like the old magic 8 ball that gets shaken and displays an answer, only just a (small) tad more complex.

    RWA,

    Keep trying. One day you will succeed in producing a reasoned point. Until then insults, name calling and generalities will need to suffice for you to be able to write anything.

    Bush says Iraq straining nation's psyche

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060821/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush

    Should we take this as an acknowledgement that Iraq is a failure and he blew it?

    can you answer this with more excuses?

    8-ball,

    So when a runner is running a marathon and both his body and psyche are strained with the exertion, yet he keeps going; according to you his run is a miserable failure?

    Just a guess since you never do make a point to actually respond to.

    8BALL? How lame...Does your religion allow name calling or did you learn that from Bill O'Reilly?

    Anyway this marathon as you call it was supposed to have been over in 2003...remember that "Mission Accomplished" BS. Now here we are 3 years on and to put it plainly Iraq is circling the SH**ter and israel is fighting a two front war at wht point do you and the rest of the CLUELESS join the majority of the U.S. and see that your Bozo in Chief may not have that direct line to God with all the answers??

    remEmber Rove Rule #666-When you have been proven wrong and have no response or Arguement, change the suject, make excuses or ATTACK...ATTACK!!!

    And..."THANK MR. PRESIDENT ...THANK YOU FOR BEING A BUMBLING AND INARTICULATE FU.....ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU"!!!

    You liberals still make fools of yourself over the mission accomplished sign on the aircraft carrier. Can you please tell me when that aircraft carrier was used again in the conflict in Iraq? What further mission did the aircraft carrier have? Can't name it can you? Yet you will insist upon continuing to beat a falsehood to death.

    Now you can continue your Attack-Attack-Attack and O'Reilly learned name calling.

    You know as well as I do that Bush was going to use that for campaign purposes ,but Iraq turned out just like Colin Powell siad it would.

    More excuses for GOP/Bush failures. I geuss that's all you got as you don't have all that much to crow about these days.


    If only we could ship all you GOP chickenhawks over there...but then again your all a bunch of CUT AND RUN P****** when the going gets bad...right?

    Why would I know this? It is simply words you have chosen to write. It does not make it so.

    More excuses for GOP/Bush failures. I geuss that's all you got as you don't have all that much to crow about these days.

    And please tell me what your side of the aisle has to crow about these days. (And trashing Bush does not qualify as an accomplishment to crow about)

    Poll: Opposition to Iraq war at all-time high


    http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/08/21/iraq.poll/

    Keep watchign FAUX NEWS and Just keep repeating to yourself that "we are making progress and that the front on Terror is in Iraq", you'll find in the end that your one of the few remaining true believers...Kinda like those few that thought Hitler was RIGHT as the Russians and the Americans closed in on Berlin from all sides.

    THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT.....THANK YOU FOR SCREWING UP EVERYTHING...ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU!

    8-ball,
    So when a poll shows that a large majority of people disagree with you on an issue, do you wave a white flag and figure you must be wrong? If not, what is your point?

    Let's see how many things we can use to determine if something is right or wrong. So far according to you and your ilk you determine if you did the right thing by:

    1) If the majority in a poll agree with me

    2) How well things are going right now

    3) Shake the 8-ball and see what it says.

    I guess those are ok guidelines for the weak minded. For those that actual think, more is required.

    I'm still waiting for the big list of accomplishments from your side of the aisle.

    Yeah, kinda like Bush did with the Dubai ports deal...etc.


    Let's see how many things we can use to determine if something is right or wrong. So far according to you and your ilk you determine if you did the right thing by:

    1) If the majority in a poll agree with me

    The majority is always right as they put Bush in Office and supported this BS war. Now it has gone the other way....does taht mean they are wrong now???

    2) How well things are going right now

    Well things in IRaq and the Mid East are total SH** and things here at home are shaky at best economically, but I will go to Faux NEws and Snowjob for the Real news that the MSM refuses to report...or just keep coming here for the Newflashes from FANTASYLAND.


    3) Shake the 8-ball and see what it says.

    Bush and the GOP are toast come Nov.

    I guess those are ok guidelines for the weak minded.

    Yes, as they have served your side so well for the last 6 years...so even if the writing is on the wall keep repeating "STAY THE COURSE" besides what do you care as you and noone you know will have to serve on the front lines...typical 5 deferment Dick CHeney Chickenhawk.

    For those that actual think, more is required.

    I'm still waiting for the big list of accomplishments from your side of the aisle.

    Going against all that the GOP and Bush stand for..so far it looks like America is starting to WAKE UP to the facts and the Lies. So where are those WMDs again?


    8-BALL over and out.
