The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers. Ayn Rand
Ahmadinejad did not just go to the Lebanon/Israeli border solely to spew his nazi-like anti-American, antisemtic annihilationist invective. Clearly, there is more to it. Something evil is afoot, and the Arab Press is predicting that something is going to happen.
The free world is without a leader. Obama is silly and dangerous, incapable or unwilling to take a brave, principled stance in defense of freedom and our allies. The forces of evil smell blood, and they are going in for the kill. A world without America's forceful presence is descending into chaos and havoc.
It seems like a lifetime ago (not five short years) when Bush had Syria on the ropes and there were landmark demonstrations for freedom in Lebanon. Then UN Ambassador John Bolton was pressing forward with the UN's investigation of Syria's involvement in the "potential linkages" of the murder of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri and 14 other assassinations of anti-Syrian Lebanese figures. The 14 cases included the murder of anti-Syrian newspaper boss and MP Gibran Tueni last December, which Lebanese lawmakers blamed on Damascus. The removal of Syria's stranglehold on Lebanon led to the Cedar revolution -- Lebanon had a shot at emerging from under the boot of Iranian/Syrian proxy of Hezb'allah's jihad.
Looking back on all those 2005 Atlas posts, they are all infused with the one thing the Obama adminstration is completely devoid of -- hope. Oh, the irony.

The Kuwaiti daily Al-Rai predicts, citing Arab diplomatic sources, that on October 16, 2010, following the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Lebanon, Hizbullah and forces affiliated with it will begin implementing their plan to stage a coup in the country.
The daily added that Hizbullah is adamant on changing the makeup of the Lebanese government, regardless of the activity of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

The Al-Akhbar daily, which is close to Hizbullah, reports that in a series of recent meetings with senior Hizbullah officials, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah updated them regarding plans for dealing with all scenarios, both internal and with regard to the international tribunal for the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq A-Hariri.
Nasrallah promised that the next stage would bring very good news for Hizbullah and its allies.
