I can’t believe what I’m seeing on television. The ongoing conflict in the Middle East has erupted into complete chaos.
Israel intensified its attacks against Lebanon on Thursday, imposing a naval blockade, twice hitting Beirut’s airport, and blasting two Lebanese army air bases near Syria. Hezbollah fired more than 100 rockets into Israel, which said one also struck the port city of Haifa.
I’m amazed at the response from around the world. The backlash against Israel is unbelievable. Russia and France condemned the strikes. Greece says Israel’s actions are excessive and pointless. Meanwhile, Bush backs Israel’s right to defend itself.
So much for the road map for peace.
