The president wants to get "tough" on Israel, and negotiate with Hamas and Hezbollah.

That whirring sound you hear is Winston Churchill spinning in his grave. And the laughter and cheering is a soundtrack from the streets of Palestine on the afternoon of 11 September 2001, as Palestinians danced in the streets upon hearing of the thousands of civilians murdered in New York and Washington, D.C.. If you listen closely, you might even hear the laughter of a German corporal.

If you're waitin on MY apology, especially France, don't hold your breath. The next time Germany hits your borders, as they have three times in the last 150 years, don't call us, we're not arrogant enough to tell them they can't.

If what you are doing is the right thing to do, it shouldn't matter that you have to do it alone.

Our European arrogance in alphabetical order

Couldn't have said it any better...

If you've been around my blog for a while, you may have noticed one of the links down the right side, "Mike Bratton's Blog." I had the honor of knowing Mike (admittedly briefly and peripherally) at my old church, Bellevue Baptist (also a link on the right) when I took an acting class from him (bout the only thing I learned about acting is that I make a better bad guy than a good guy, but really don't do either one particularly well), before I moved to Oregon and he moved to Alabama. Mike's blog was the inspiration for this blog, which reminds me of an old story about Alexander MacLaren (ask me if you're interested).

Mike's post are always interesting and well thought through, and I really couldn't do any better myself, so I'll just draw your attention to it from here.
