The Samaritan Report

A Newsletter for Those Who Actually Give a Damn; As Chomsky Said: “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” Keep THAT In Mind.

Where the Left Stands

Two people from the Left side of things have caught my (and others') attention:

Andrew Sullivan decided to be an ignoramus - in other words, his usual self - when it comes to the protection and survival of the State of Israel. If he had been following the news properly, he would not have written on his blog:
There will come a time when the destruction of Southern Lebanon and the inability to remove Hezbollah by force will demand either re-occupation of Southern Lebanon by Israel, or an international force. Time is running out for the former option. Given our other urgent task in the Middle East - finding a way to prevent Iraq descending into all-out civil war - involving allies in the fight against Hezbollah is increasingly vital. A cease-fire is needed, sooner rather than later.
- The Daily Dish (The bolding in the last sentence is mine).
Now, how could Sullivan have possible erred in this statement, one might ask? True, it sounds quite reasonable - and mostly it is. Nevertheless, having not factored in the recent history of Hezbollah activity, Sullivan ignored the most important reason a cease-fire shouldn't be called.

Cindy Sheehan's doing her stuff again. I can't for the life of me understand why people still choose to take her seriously. According to Breitbart, Cindy "purchased a 5-acre plot in Crawford with some of the insurance money she received after her son was killed in Iraq" and is quoted saying "I can't think of a better way to use Casey's insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves.", buying a five acre ranch is equivalent to spending her dead son's insurance money on peace? If I were an objective reported I'd ask her where she gets her delusions.

Unity over Diversity,
- The Samaritan
