The Blame Game

Its great to see Newspeak still thrives:

"We consider that when the resistance is committed not to fire rockets, then any rocket that is fired from the Lebanese territory would be considered collaboration with Israel to provide a pretext to strike," he [Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr] said Sunday.

"We bellyfeel Israel doubeplusungood; Hezbollah doubleplusgood" would have been just as clear. Since Hezbollah is implicitly and inherently innocent of any wrongdoing, and by corollary Israel is guilty of all wrongdoings, any rockets fired from Lebanon into Israel must have been fired by Israelis as a cheap excuse to get back in the ring!

The whole thing is a farce anyway, as Lebanon has already violated the terms of the ceasefire by failing to disarm Hezbollah. Way to go UN -- keep it up!
