I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy — but that could change.

Look who has crawled out of his cave – the Divine Victor of Lebanese war Nasrallah?!

Yes, it's him. The man who delivered to all of Lebanon and to the entire Arab nation a divine victory over Israel last year.

(AFP) Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah chief and one of Israel's most wanted men, appeared in public for the first time in more than a year to attend a Shiite religious event in the Lebanese capital on Saturday.
The man who delivered a crushing blow to Israel and emerged victorious from the ruins of Beirut to claim the mantel of the first Arab Terrorist to whip Israeli Army, has emerged from the cave where he spent the last year hiding. He summoned the courage to appear in public in order to be whipped in commemoration of Ashura, a Shiite holiday, when the believers smack themselves bloody for fun and glory while shouting - "Death to America, Death to Israel".

Hezbollah is responsible for the deaths of 299 US marines in 1983 Beirut barracks bombing. So far no American government has retaliated for that atrocity. EU dos not consider Hezbollah a terror organization.

Silicone Valley, United States
I am a cantankerous man living and working in the Silicon Valley where reading books is an abomination that is virtually unheard of, frowned upon and may be detrimental to one's career. I avoid censure by never conceding that I ever read or owned a book in my life. If anyone accidentally glimpses my scant proficiency in any subject matter, I immediately accredit it to having glanced at DrudgeReport that day.
