Half Good or Half Bad

I'm sorry I've been slow when things are moving at light speed around here. When I try to put my thoughts about a topic on paper it seems to be trumped by another more urgent news. To keep up with the pace of ongoing events I will resort to bullets, just like everyone else seems to be doing these days.



  • The Saudi-Qatari propaganda war is the best thing on TV since Seinfeld (before Larry David left the show.)
  • The Saudi-Qatari propaganda war is the best thing to hit news stands since Oprah's Magazine.
  • What's with the media blackout on the gun clashes erupting here and there.
  • Walid Jumblat was a tool, he's now free. His words not mine.
  • A country whose number one export is Cocoa was rewarded with a shipful of fatal toxic waste.
  • God hates chocolate ... and Africans.
  • God led Hezbollah to victory .
  • God also led the Miami Heat to victory.
  • My friend who has been job hopping in the desert since the 90's thinks the job market and economy in Lebanon are dead because of the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon.
  • Finance Minister Jihad Azour agrees.
  • Dori Chamoun: Goatee or no Goatee?
  • This week marked the death anniversaries of Bachir Gemayyel and Hadi Nasrallah, as seen extensively on TV, oh yeah and the thousands at Sabra and Shatila, barely seen on TV.
  • Yemen.

why cant you be honest?

it was the Hezbollah-Lebanon War on Israel

Israel just attacked back and lost by all hezbollah and lebanese accounts

it was american-israely war on lebanese civilian, decided some weeks before the actual war.
and Israel just lost by all accounts because for once the world saw the real attrocities that israelies did.
in 1996, internet wasn't that mainstream yet, international media was still restricted with a few channels (mainly americans) (mainly pro israel).
But now its a whole different story :).
the world is watching...

jamal,

the comment about being honest about the war was aimed at you.

Hezbollah started it, not israel.

so why not call it the hezbollah-lebonese war of 2006?

My statement made no personal attacks, it was just a statement in context of what you posted.

As for kodder, he's your people

Jamal, I did not know That the Miami Heat had Raad and Fajr Missiles :P
But they have Shaq and God listened to Pat Riley's pep talk before the games ... How about we play the Israelis for the Shebaa Farms over a game of Hoops ? It is cheaper for all sides ...

ana,

all lebanon has to do is get syria to sign some papers cededing the farms to lebanon.

then ask israel for them.

oh, maybe return the kidnapped soldiers that have never been seen by the red cross too.
