Israel strikes Beirut Airport

Israel has now for the first time in 6 years crossed into Lebanon territory attacking several targets, and then also taking out all 3 of its airport runways. I wonder if there is now no turning back in the Middle East. I hope rational minds will prevail in this extremely trying time, but I think there are only bad roads ahead.

I do not see how a peaceful resolution to this will be possible. Iran will surely protest, most likely increase funding to radical groups, and possibly just get right into the mix of it all. Many in the Middle East are sure to find this incredibly offensive, and anger is the last thing the region needs more of.

Whatever road is taken at this point, I wonder if the last turn off for peace was just passed by.

We all know how America handled vote problems, lets see how Mexico deals with it

It will be really something to see how the election in Mexico works out. They seem to have taken a few cues from the American political system, and fudged up the vote enough to cause some real problems. I am not sure if the left of Mexico will just sit back and let this happen without some serious opposition.

Who knows, maybe it will all work out peacefully, and in a way to strengthen the Mexican people, but we will have to wait and see.

I may get this quote wrong, and the person wrong, so if so, please feel free to correct me, but I believe Stalin said, "It is not the voting that counts, it is the counting that counts".

Just what we need, Nazi's in the U.S. armed forces

So now our armed forces have lowered the bar for entry so low, Neo-Nazis are joining up in force. That's just what we need, another radical group of nut jobs being trained by the U.S. military so they can later come back and use that training to do harm to America.

What the hell is going on with this? The fact that Nazi's can get into the U.S. military is a slap in the face to every G.I. who fought in Europe. These people are atrocious, and now the American people are paying with their tax dollars, for these losers to train and learn the best way to bring us harm.

I feel so bad for some kid who is in the middle of Iraq having to deal with all that crap, only to also have to be stuck with some Neo-Nazi piece of garbage adding to the misery. A few years ago, many generals spoke of the military being stretched to a breaking point, and that it will break. I guess this is one more confirmation, Bush has truly broken our military.
