My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


The Value of the DIS-proportionate Response

[Mahmoud Khomati's] comments were the first time that a leader from the terror group has suggested it miscalculated the consequences of the July 12 cross-border raid that seized the two.

"The truth is - let me say this clearly - we didn't even expect (this) response.... that (Israel) would exploit this operation for this big war against us," said Komati.

He said Hizbullah had expected "the usual, limited response" from Israel.

Which, of course, is nothing more than a recipe for continuing terror attacks. The status quo ante (as SecState Rice is fond of saying) is precisely what the Islamists want--it gives them time for Iran to develop its nuke, which would spell the end of Israel.

And make no mistake--the Lebanese government is, at the least, complicit in the attacks on Israel. Any claim of innocent victimization is laughable. The sad part is that the Lebanese people are paying a high price for the choices of its government and the cowardice of hizbullah.
