Not Good. Not Good At All.

Three kidnapped Israeli soldiers and suddenly we’re looking at something like the start of World War III in the Middle East.

Doesn’t the bombing of Lebanon’s airports and highways seem a tad bit disproportionate? Surely Israel realizes they’re creating a whole new batch of delusional suicide bombers that no security wall will ever protect them from.

The sight of our president eating spit-roasted pig in Germany as the Mideast descends into chaos is yet another unfortunate My Pet Goat moment, but who knows what’s really going on in the White House? Maybe the administration wants Israel’s hostilities to goad the Arab world into committing a telegenic act of terror that will somehow "justify" a unilateral attack on Iran and/or Syria. Given their track record, you can't help but think they're up to something.

It's a sad state of affairs when disengaged incompetence is the best thing America can hope for from its president.

It's really sad. I wrote about this on my blog too. I don't think the White House can condemn Israel because its pretty much what we did in Afghanistan post 9/11.
