Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies

Left: A dead Lebanese terrorist in Beirut

In my opinion, all liars need to be exterminated like cockroaches. The truth shall set you free, but lies do nothing but enslave, and I have one and only one solution for those who would enslave me: exterminate them like the animals they are. As Patrick Henry put it, "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

The current sets of lies being trotted out by the neocon liars and their vile slavery-loving political hacks is that somehow bombing an innocent city (Beirut) has anything to do with defending Israel. They say something along the lines of, "Hezbollah fired rockets into an Israeli city, so it was self defense to attack a city hundreds of miles away!". Ignoring the fact that Hezbollah did not fire rockets into Haifa until after Israel bombed Beirut and killed dozens of innocent Lebanese civilians. I was watching the news when all this was happening. I saw the bombs fall on Beiruit *HOURS* before Hezbollah fired rockets into Haifa.

Here is the real chronology. This is what I saw, watching the news. Hezbollah attacked an Israeli patrol that was either inside Lebanon or very close to the Lebanese border, killed 3 Israeli soldiers and capturing two. Fair enough, war is war, and nobody denies that Hezbollah is at war against Israel, this is all soldiers fighting soldiers. Hezbollah then proposed a ludicrous prisoner swap of two Israeli soldiers for hundreds of imprisoned Palestinian activists. Israel rightfully said "You're smoking somethin', dude!" and told them to get stuffed.

Then ISRAEL BOMBED BEIRUT. Bombing civilian infrastructure in Beirut had nothing - NOTHING - to do with Hezbollah firing rockets at Haifa. Hezbollah hadn't fired rockets at Haifa then. And the rockets that fell on Haifa didn't come from Beirut. They came from Iran, via Syria. Why, then, bomb Beirut? All we hear are lies, lies, lies, lies, lies from the Israeli politicians and their propagandists in the media.

Then there's Newtie and Kristol and their lying ass bastard selves going on television and saying that if the Lebanese government couldn't rein in Hezbollah, well, we ought to kill all the Lebanese. Look, Hezbollah is supported by the Syrian and Iranian governments. WTF is a few thousand poorly armed policemen (the Lebanese "army") supposed to do about folks who have a million Syrian soldiers standing behind them? Asking the Lebanese government to take on Hezbollah would be like asking a 5 year old armed with a water pistol to take on the U.S. Army -- so laughable that it fails even the most rudimentary laugh tests.

The thing is, I just don't get it. Why would Israel bomb Beirut when Beirut has nothing to do with Hezbollah? I mean, the only reason that makes sense is if Israeli politicians simply want to kill unseemly mud people, untermenschen, in order to prove they had, like, a big swinging dick or something. But surely Israel would not bomb the capital of a sovereign nation simply because they hate darkies, right? Surely Israel would not bomb the Jabel Amel Hospital (an obvious military target, yessiree! Especially with that big red crescent on its roof!) simply because they hate Arabs and want to exterminate them, right? Surely Israel would not fire upon U.N. relief workers simply because they hate Arabes and want to exterminate them, right? Right?! Then why? All I hear are lies, lies, lies, lies, and lies. Where is the truth, in this sea of lies? And when can we exterminate all these liars, please?

When there is no rational explanation then you have to wonder about conspiracy theories and manipulation and stuff.

My government wouldn't be involved in that kind of thing, would it?

Follow the money.

Could someone also explain to me how bombing the Beirut airport and fuel depots was striking back at terrorists?

It's so depressing, watching the world go down into the hell of war, for stupid stupid reasons. We should be fighting poverty and global warming with all the money and energy we have, before it's too late, and what do we do????
