    Should you need a kick in the morale, Dr. Sanity has just the energy, including this excerpt (link follows):

    ‘UPDATE II: This from a Lebanese blogger (via Michael Ledeen at The Corner):
    The situation in Ain Ebel is unbearable. Thousands of civilians have fled to the village from nearby villages and more than 1000 rockets have hit the village, there is no more food neither clean water and diseases r spreading.

    Now here comes the most sickening part:

    Hezbollah has been firing rockets from the village since Day 1 hiding behind innocent people’s places and even CHURCHES. No one is allowed to argue with the Hezbollah gunmen who wont hesitate to shoot you and i ve heard about more than one shooting incident including young men from the village and Hezbollah.

    Urgent appeals have been done through phone calls from terrified people who wouldnt give out their name fearing Hezbollah might harm or even eliminate them.

    This is the true image of our brave Islamic Resistance, putting the civilians and their homes as body shields to the Israeli bombardements.

    Let the message spread and let those criminals move out of the village once and for all.

    Free Ain Ebel from the terrorists !’

    Very prophetic for today as well.

    Jg, that is intense information, though sadly, not surprising. Why else would there have been so many women and children in that house in Qana?

    Some American Marines on Tarawa (or Saipan, another island), had just broken the defense on that island. They were going around trying to evacuate the civilians still on that island. The Japanese women threw their babies into the rocks below a cliff, then jumped to their deaths, because Japanese propaganda said that Americans were demons if they captured you.

    There were still some caves and supply caches that had to be searched. The first hole in the ground was searched, the Marine on point was either fatally shot or wounded, by those inside. So instead of searching the next hole in the ground/cave, they threw a grenade in there. Well, it just so happened that that cave contained a bunch of Japanese schoolchildren.

    The Marines may forgive the Japanese for killing their buddies in honorable man on man combat, but they will never forgive the Japanese for making them have the blood of children on their hands. They will scour your cities with nuclear fire, if it meant that you would surrender instead of making us kill all your women and children.

    We forgive what you have done to us. It’s one reason why there are still Native Americans around, even though the Native American- Colonial border wars were even more savage than the Israeli Palestinian border war. However, it is not so easy to forgive those who attempt to put children into harm’s way.

    Their immorality and ruthlessness should be returned with ethical conduct fused with an even harder version of ruthlessness and will. The Japanese is still the gold standard for how to defeat fanatics while preserving your soul and the future, remember that. The anti-neocons certainly have forgotten by now. We know what works. Bush’s experiment is an attempt to create a solution where fewer people die in the end. The self-righteous left, how I hate their hypocrisy and certitude.

    I do not believe I will forgive the Left when they have forced the United States to kill when it was not necessary, had Iraq and Afghanistan succeded. This, of course, wars with fukushou, the desire to punish and exact vengeance. Truman and Hirohito were heroes, because Truman saved the soul of America by avoiding having to committ genocide and Hirohito saved his entire people, present and future.

    You need to scour the leadership of the Arabic world clean, first, before you can find men of the same caliber.
