Amblin' along

I see dead people. No big whup.

Condoleezza Rice is not in a hurry. Given that she has more or less professed that Israel will be allowed -- for another week -- to produce more dead people, her "measured" response to the growing conflict appears designed to do just that. And, emulating Rice's sit back and laugh attitude, the international community has now decided that their broad consensus recognises that, in order to put a halt to the carnage, a cease-fire must have "political underpinnings." It took them a week to come up with that one.

Or it took them 300+ lives, a half million Lebanese refugees and a nearly annihilated Beirut to come up with that one, depending on the units of measure.
