So you really think it is all about oil and the God-given right for americans to burn it all.

Hil, I don't think much of US policy towards I/P since early 2001, but we're not, and have never been, in the car, much less behind the wheel. We're in the theater, cheering as those brave women refuse to give in . . .

I'll say again that the road to Jerusalem does lead through Baghdad. If you're in Teheran.

Problem is, when we looked for a president to conduct this policy, we went through Texas.

Should've listened to Louise, dammit.

"So you really think it is all about oil and the God-given right for americans to burn it all."


Ummmm...huh? How much oil did Palestine and Israel export last year, again?

So who's Brad Pitt?

First rule: do not talk about Fight Club.

any analogy that has the Loser in Chief and his sidekick Greeble the Warrior Troll being played by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon--

well, it's just an unjustified slur on two terrific actresses, is all.

Actually, George reminds me more of Thelma's husband.

How many hit points does Greeble the Warrior Troll have?

That explains the huge fireball in that one picture - they had to stop him from regenerating.

And then they're being chased by goblins with blue and red eyes in the next picture?

"Greeble the Warrior Troll" was actually Dave Barry's description of Henry Kissinger some years ago. (In a column asking the question: why do attractive women date men who look like they should be in a Toys-R-Us display labeled "GtWT"?)

But it applies equally well to Cheney. Who is managing to make HK look not only personall attractive, but like an enlightened humanitarian visionary.

You're just jealous of Dick's sexual magnetism.

Test, Like the T&L GW flying off the cliff.

Yes, a deep and persuasive analysis. Your insight gives us clear direction what nuanced courses to pursue with a dozen arab nations of varying degrees of enmity toward us and toward Israel.

These are complicated, deadly events. Oversimplifying them for the purpose of partisan PR is an immature response.

AVI: I did nuance in a different post.

Harumph!

"Oversimplifying them for the purpose of partisan PR is an immature response."

What would Greeble the Warrior Troll say?

Jesus, AVI, have you made sure to email Rove and Bush with this important message every day since 1999?

How do think they have driven the country off the cliff *except* by oversimplifying world events for partisan PR?

These are people who watched New York City being attacked, and immediately began plotting how they could blame the liberals for it and make the Democrats look weak in the mid-term elections.

Thanks for your concern, pal--it's really the blogs that have done all this damage.

Reaaarrgenchs uuunglabsch shloobloo.

Which loosely translates to: Go f!ck yourself.

Geena Davis is hot, especially holding that gun.

She's come a long ways since Fletch.

Tootsie was three years before Fletch.

As I was just saying at Unfogged yesterday, I think it's a shame that the last episode of Commander-In-Chief before it went off the air didn't feature Geena Davis bumping her head, and suddenly remembering her name was Charlie, she was an assassin, and start cursing and killing people.

Wouldn't that have been a much better way to go out?

I don't know how this situation gets better for Israel even in the short term. It seems to me that the larger issue is Haifa and its security. Hezbollah has these new rockets which are cheap, small, and easy to smuggle. They can't realistically barricade Lebanon forever to prevent these weapons from being smuggled in. So I do not understand how they are going to restore Haifa's security situation. Crippling Hezbollah infrastructure in southern Lebanon, you would think, will only be a stopgap for a couple of months. The only thing I could see he is reestablishing that buffer zone to put high for some 50 miles from the effective border. But even then Hezbollah will have little problem upgrading to the 60 mile range rockets, and so forth. Israel will fight like hell to restore the previous security equilibrium, but I honestly wonder if even total warfare in Lebanon would achieve that end.

Piscator, you probably want this thread, or this one.

This is the Greeble the Warrior Troll/Geena Davis thread.

Question: which Geena Davis character would be best suited to saving the Mideast?

I think the answer to that is patently obvious.

It would be possibly sexist of me to suggest that that bikini could, indeed, devastate the Middle East, so I won't.

Was it her diplomatic skills you were referring to?

Probably an inspiring game of baseball wouldn't do the trick.

But a ghost might accomplish unanticipated wonders, might it not?
