How's 'bout this. More dead Hezzies, and only liberals and terrorists care.

Bet they hit an underground ammo dump.

They must have gotten some good intel from the captured Hezzies.

What is there to say? "They blowed up real good"??

Nasrallah promised to bomb Tel-Aviv if Beirut was hit and I guess we'll see if he's just a liar.

I never watch CNN. But it was on at the pub. And they were all over this. The sound was down, so I gained an interesting perspective by watching the video and accompanying headlines. What, exactly, this has to do with Sen Hillary Clinton, I can't say, but they managed to get her face into the context somehow.

It's hard to watch that and not come away convinced that it's scripted to create, shall we say, certain impressions and associations.

That, I suppose, is what journalizm is. But it sure aint just reporting the facts impartially.

She may have become Hezzbolah's defacto leader.

Somehow the headline makes me think of those Doublemint advertisements... Can't seem to figure out why...

She already reigns supreme there. Nasrallah is probably cowering somehwere and can't be found, so the Hezzies are imploring the ultimate terrorist to help them.

Seriously, a reporter close to a 500 pounder going off would call it a "huge explosion."

A truly huge explosion is when a 500 pounder explodes in an arms dump. I love the sight of secondaries. They look like victory.

Just saw a tape of Nazrallah saying if Israel decides to stop bombing their cities, they will stop sending rockets into Israel... That's a definite blink.

Just some scumbags sent off to meet their 72 virgins. I hope the virgins are all sows with the clap.
