They've Got Bulldozers and Cash, and They Move Quickly

1. The Israeli-Hezbollah skirmishes are only weeks old.

2. The ceasefire has just gone into effect, and Lebanese are just returning home.

3. Hezbollah is already offering immediate cash money and help removing debris with their bulldozers.

A nonstate entity is offering cash and bulldozers?????

Where do we sign up? Maybe this guy Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah should be appointed to the LRA.

Well, his penchant for claiming to know exactly what God wants (and what God usually wants, it seems, is to hurt other people) would probably force my veto, if I had one.

But maybe they could at least hire him as a consultant.

I'm telling you, if southern Lebanon gets a streetcar up and running before we do, I might go and do a Cat Stevens or something.

UPDATE: After Oyster finished calling me names, he posted a great link showing how the White House is springing into action to help southern Lebanon. Wonder if the President did a flyover in Air Force One to survey the damage?

If they get a streetcar I won't mind as long as they call it the "Peace Train"-- and mean it.

Off the subject but of great importance…..Clayton James Cubitt http://operationeden.blogspot.com/2006/08/katrina-every-day.html will be here over the next week making portraits of survivors for use in public service announcements highlighting the need to reach out for help when it all gets to be too much. Anyone who would like to participate, contact: travelingmermaid@gmail.com

Well, if Katrina dissidents are going to be called terrorist sympathizers, we may as well take advantage.

BTW, I started a new tag playing on exactly the thing that the fear-mongerers themselves fear the most -- peaceful protest: "Katrina dissidents."
