Sandmonkey & Other Opinions

Suprise! (Warning colorful language, foul mood.)

And for balance, Daily Kos supports Iran's viewpoint. LGF has more.

And in case anyone is still delusional, we are in World War III, or if you consider the Cold War WWIII, we're in World War IV. We can quibble later. We are in a World War. Get used to it. Even Newt Gingrich says we're in WWIII and thinks G.W. should call a meetin' with Congress Monday. Nicedoggie has more.

Captain's Quarter's muses about who exactly is in charge in Syria.

Michael Totten is in Lebanon and he's worried.

And, and this is most important, if you are a regular reader of my blog: I stand with Israel. Michelle Malkin reprints Oriani Fallaci's essay. She then discusses the Vatican's "condemnation of Israel." I put this last, but you might find it the most important link of all. Here is an excerpt:

I find it shameful that in part through the fault of the left--or rather, primarily through the fault of the left (think of the left that inaugurates its congresses applauding the representative of the PLO, leader in Italy of the Palestinians who want the destruction of Israel)--Jews in Italian cities are once again afraid. And in French cities and Dutch cities and Danish cities and German cities, it is the same. I find it shameful that Jews tremble at the passage of the scoundrels dressed like suicide bombers just as they trembled during Krystallnacht, the night in which Hitler gave free rein to the Hunt of the Jews.

I find it shameful that in obedience to the stupid, vile, dishonest, and for them extremely advantageous fashion of Political Correctness the usual opportunists--or better the usual parasites--exploit the word Peace. That in the name of the word Peace, by now more debauched than the words Love and Humanity, they absolve one side alone of its hate and bestiality. That in the name of a pacifism (read conformism) delegated to the singing crickets and buffoons who used to lick Pol Pot's feet they incite people who are confused or ingenuous or intimidated. Trick them, corrupt them, carry them back a half century to the time of the yellow star on the coat. These charlatans who care about the Palestinians as much as I care about the charlatans. That is not at all...

For shame.

I just got through reading a article in The Economist, "Ready for a Bush hug?" which talks about relations between America and Germany hopefully getting better since Angela Merkel became new chancellor. That of course remains to be seen. Gert Weiskirchen, a foreign-policy guru for the Social Democrats says: "If there were a threat to Israel, Germany would help to defend it "without batting an eyelid."
Israels Prime Minister said this morning in an interview that he wishes the United Nation, Europe and America would put a stop of the ugliness. They will fight, however, even if no one comes to help.
Pickering now over how America was and is viewed in a time like this, seems childish to me. The truth is, America is the strongest nation no matter what political views are held. That is the point, I believe Spiegel Online is talking about.
