Seymour Hersh details in the New Yorker that plans to invade and bomb Lebanon were made in advance, “earlier this summer, before the Hezbollah kidnappings” by Israel and the US, with the full agreement of Bush, Cheney and Rice, as a prelude for a war against Iran.
Brain-dead ideologues that they are, the Bushies believed Lebanese would then rise up against Hezbollah – precisely what, in their delusion, they assumed would happen when they invaded Iraq. Of course, precisely the opposite happened. “Insanity is when you continue to do the same thing expecting different results.” Their connection with reality is fleeting indeed. That thousands are dead and a country has been bombed concerns them not. One happy day in the future, may they all be frog-marched to a war crimes tribunal. Let’s work towards making it so.
