Not to be Missed

"Chapeau" to the brilliant bloggist Belmont Club. Click on 'Pulp Fiction' and then refer back to today's Guardian interview by Ghaith Abdul-Ahad.

Great blog Jane, think it is very good, balanced and insightful. Two interesting things to look at. Firstly the Hizbollah manifesto:

Second, a report on how the UN is actually repairing roads that israel destroyed in order to stop Hizbollah's weapon supplies (crazy!):

Anyway, hope all is well, see you soon (ish)

Have you been to Ed Morrissey's Captain's Quarters?

Yes, I found you at Belmont's post, because your son left a comment.

If there was a "strategy," I'm going to guess that the nut in iran wants waterfront property. Syria's piece is too small. And, the American Marines sing about going from THE HALLS OF MONTEZUMA, TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI, as their anthem.

When the Israeli ship got his with the Iranian missile what you really saw was a piece of what iran wants. To shoot at all the shipping in the Mediterrainian. (Meanwhile, the IDF took out Lebanon's radar. And, also sent missiles into the crap Assad sent to his cousin, who runs things, in Tripoli.)

That's the master plan. Meanwhile, talks of a "cease fire" are just a decoy. In my opinion, of course. CAROL HERMAN

Hi Jane

I came in from the Belmont Cub as well. This is a great effort in dramatic times, please keep it up.

I'm interested in your opinion on the extent to which Hizbullah is acting independently, or directed by Damascus and/or Tehran.

No compromise with those who would kill us all - Jews, Christians, 'polytheists' and secular alike.

I also came from Belmont Club, and like what you are offering. Keep up the good work.

Hi Jane,
You said in the blog below: "It's going to be very difficult to get a ceasefire"

That's a key point. I can't see how the Hezbos agree to disarm or leave So. Lebanon with their arms. They have been preparing for this conflict for years. Digging tunnels, bringing in arms,etc. And then to just walk away.

These guys are certified islamofascists, just like the Taliban only better trained and armed. Maybe they are "dead-enders" (a term we haven't heard for a while.).

Dear Carol. Yes, I buy the waterfront property theory. Off to the Captain's Quarters now. Thanks. Jane.

Spatchcock - Read the Guardian article. Is it the first interview with Hezbollah before the shit hit the fan? It's all there anyway. Jane.

Spatchcock. I meant 'after'. Serves me right for swearing in public. Jane.

Nice move, "W".

Congrats "J", and just posted about you on "Minding the Gap", too, (but don't hold your breath that my two faithful but occasional readers might come thundering through your portals as a result).
