    the belligerence of north korea..., 2006-07-13 18:07:10 | Main | their days are truly numbered..., 2006-07-14 12:14:12

    our genius precedes:

    Uhm, Israel is thrashing about like an enraged gorilla, over three Lebanese detainees? Just three? Hezbollah thinks three is reason enough for tossing stalin organs around? I mean, how smart do you have to be not to poke the 10,000 pound gorilla in the eye.

    During a prisoner exchange between Hizbullah and Israel in 2004, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed that if all Lebanese detainees were not freed from Israeli jails, Hizbullah would eventually abduct more Israeli soldiers. Fulfiling this pledge, Hizbullah on Wednesday captured two Israeli soldiers in an operation dubbed "Truthful Promise."

    During a news conference on Wednesday, Nasrallah made another vow: that "no military operation will return" the two soldiers, and that only another prisoner swap will secure their freedom. Only a fool would doubt that Nasrallah now means what he says. The Israelis must therefore carefully weigh two difficult questions. Is it really worth it for them to continue keeping three Lebanese prisoners in jail? And is the mere chance of saving two soldiers really worth spilling more Israeli blood in another deadly military adventure in Lebanon?
