The World Doesn’t Get It

That’s kind of a bold statement, but the evidence piles up every day that passes in this latest Mideast Crisis.

Newt Gingrich on “Hannity and Colmes” last night made a great point, as he usually does. He said that the world needs to wake up from the notion that a “balanced” response is one where one groups kills three people, then your group gets to kill three of your enemies. Therefore, Israel’s actions in Lebanon are over the top. Newt challenges this notion because it does not solve any problems. Hezbollah would still have a safe haven in Southern Lebanon, they’d still be trying to blackmail the Israelis, and the violence would continue indefinitely. Israel is trying to solve a problem related to the greater War on Terror. I think we should let them try.
