Moderation or WWIII?
And speaking of growing support for moderation, world condemnation of Israel's outsized response to Hezbollah appears to be having results. Israel now says it doesn't want an expanded war and that it will settle for a buffer zone rather then total annihilation of Hezbollah. Unless Bush and his End-day's cronies can quickly drag Iran and Syria into the shooting, they may have missed their chance to start World War III. Of course, it won't take much more then a dime-a-dozen suicide bomber in an Israeli cafe to whip up renewed support for a full-scale invasion of Lebanon. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm projecting this brief appearance of rational thinking in Israel will have a limited engagement.
