    the rumors that Israel is floating about that new strategy are interesting and designed to remind the Lebanese citizenry that the hezzies are going to leave them to take the consequences of any new clash instigated by the hezzies.

    there really isn’t any reason for any future war between the Israelis and Lebanon.

    from the Darwin file……… no 1 with a bullet

    3 wounded in Beirut from Hezbollah funeral gunfire

    The Daily Star

    BEIRUT: Stray gunfire from a funeral for a Hezbollah fighter in Beirut’s southern suburbs wounded three civilians Wednesday, a security source told The Daily Star.

    An eight year-old Syrian boy identified as Mounir Hazini was shot in the head by one of the stray bullets in the Beirut neighborhood of Qasqas.

    The source said that the boy, who is currently in a coma, is in critical condition.

    from the Middle East discrimination file……. chickens coming home to roost

    Tension mounts between Iraqi Arabs and Kurds

    Nearly a year after ISIL was repelled from Makhmour, some Kurds say their Arab neighbours are no longer welcome.

    Megan O’Toole

    Makhmour, Iraq – Along the parched, dusty roads in and around the northern Iraqi town of Makhmour, tensions seethe between Arabs and Kurds, who once lived as neighbours here.

    Nearly a year has passed since Kurdish Peshmerga forces wrestled the town backfrom fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), who claimed Makhmour for a few short days last August.

    But when residents who had fled the fighting began returning home, it was to a different town.

    Once front-line areas are stabilised, ‘all are welcome to come back to their homes’, said Makhmour Mayor Ibrahim Shekhalla [Megan O’Toole/Al Jazeera]

    Kurdish officials reportedly refused re-entry to Arab residents, while a number of Arab homes were allegedly torched and lootedby Kurdish neighbours who suspected them of supporting ISIL.

    Still today, a year after ISIL’s lighting advances through Iraq and amid a grinding conflict that threatens to drag on indefinitely, some Kurdish residents maintain that their Arab neighbours are no longer welcome.

    Was disappointed, though not surprised, to see that my Congresscritter is in the definite Yes-to-Fast-Track camp. I may call tomorrow anyway.

    After all, if they can pretend to represent us, we can pretend that they give a damn about anything other than their own self-interest.

    Kabuki theatre and all that.

    Israel exonerates itself over Gaza beach killings of four children last year

    Israeli investigation says missile attack that killed boys aged between nine and 11 was ‘tragic accident’ in findings contradictory to journalists’ reports from scene” – http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/11/israel-clears-military-gaza-beach-children

    Killing children is deplorable, regardless of who who does it. Killing them wholesale, or engaging in actions understood to result in the deaths of innocents(Clinton) is a crime against humanity perpetrated by monsters.

    Investigations resulting in exoneration in spite of witnesses? Are you intending to turn yourself into even more of a laughingstock than you already are, pitiful old “man?”

    Are you turning full blown senile on us, dub?

    No one accused you of conducting anything, other than of conduct unbecoming to a member of the human community.

    I’ll give you a hint…..

    start acting like a host and and stop responding with personal attacks when someone disagrees with your political opinions.

    …..and try not to upvote other people when they make personal attacks.

    fulfill your obligations and perhaps other people will be more gracious guests.
