Cease-Fire and Blame

While the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah is going into effect, Iran’s Ahmadinejad blames U.S. for mideast violence:

In an interview airing Sunday on “60 Minutes,” Ahmadinejad said it was Hezbollah that had a right to defend itself in its war with Israel. Even so, he said Iran joined others in calling for an immediate cease-fire only to have it thwarted by U.S. support for Israel.

“We are not at all happy with war,” he said. “People, innocent people are being killed.”

Saying the U.N. has failed to provide security in the region, Ahmadinejad said: “We see that it is not responding to atrocities. If we search for the root causes, we see the hand of the British and the Americans.”

If one is defending oneself, were they not the one attacked in the first place? Hezbollah initiated this war by attacking Israel and targeting innocent civilians.

There is too much media emphasis on “Israel’s responsibility” in this war. They have minimal responsibility. They have gone above and beyond their requirements by warning Lebanese civilians to leave the country. If Lebanon really cared about its citizens, it would seek help to get its innocent civilians out of harm’s way.

It’s certainly unfortunate that Hezbollah is hiding among civilians, but Lebanon’s government should be much more proactive about seeking advice to prevent it.

And the extremist Iranian Prez Starts Blogging. Check out the mis-leading poll that is posted:

Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger for another world war?

Umm, no. Let me help you with that. The correct wording would be:

“Do you think Iran and Syria’s support of Hezbollah in order to obliterate Israel from the face of the earth will start another world war?

Answer: You bet!

I can’t understand why Ahmadinejad would begin a blog other than a publicity stunt. He used to have nothing to do with Internet and even talked against journalists and bloggers before he became president.

Reminds of John Kerry. I voted against that before I voted …
