Quote of the Day

Guest blogger: Michael Hussey

Courtesy of Condoleezza Rice. This is is her thoughts on the current Israel/Lebanon conflict.

What we're seeing here is, in a sense, the growing—the birth pangs of a new Middle East, and whatever we do, we have to be certain that we're pushing forward to the new Middle East, not going back to the old Middle East.

Condi describes an escalating war like it is a pregnancy. That is hardly an apt analogy. A pregnancy brings life into the world. War takes life away. What she views as growing pains is seen by the rest of the world as mass chaos. What is not surprising is Condi views all this as progress. Iraq is part of the "new Middle East" Rice speaks of. We have all seen how well that has gone.
