A few questions Monsure Minister.

French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy had to take cover under a stairway in Haifa when the sirens sounded Sunday.
Douste-Blazy is visiting the region as diplomatic efforts to end Israel's war with the Lebanese guerrilla group intensify.
Mr. Minister, a few questions please. Why is it "Israel's war" when the terrorist invaded Israel and killed and kidnapped its soldiers first? Which Diplomats have been dispatched to Hezbollah? To Hamas? Should they reach an understanding for a ceasefire will you take them at their word? Why? How asinine is it to think you can negotiate with a terrorist organization? Does having to hide from these rockets give you any idea what the Israelis have been going through since the Gaza pullout? Do you realize that since the pullout at least one rocket attack has occurred every single day? Should Israel succeed in its efforts to rid southern Lebanon of these terrorist don’t you think that would be a great boon to the new Lebanese Democracy?

Our Friend Castro

Rumors that Fidel Castro is dying are flying around the blogosphere. Everyone is treating the rumor as just that but most conservative Blogs are hoping it’s true. Babalu Blog is having a Castro deathwatch, a contest to pick the date of death; winner gets a BabalĂș and Che? Still dead! T-shirt. This will come as a hard blow to leftist admirers across the the country, especially those at the New York Times. It was a New York Times editorial writer named Herbert L. Matthews that was instrumental in putting Castro in power. The Real Cuba reports that Hugo Chavez said last night that he recently saw Castro and "he is stronger than ever." I find that encouraging.

Clinton Bribery Revisited.

Is this legal? Remember the Clintons firesale of Presidential Pardons? Rick Hendrick -convicted for mail fraud pardoned for a $500,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation. Marc Rich -indicted for tax evasion, fraud and "trading with the enemy" -- Iran, during the hostage crisis, pardoned for a $1 million donation to the Democratic Party, a $10,000 contribution to the Clintons legal defense fund and $7,300 worth of furniture. That of course is old news and apparently legal. What’s new is the fact that Hillary’s brother received $107,000 in “loans” that he never had to pay back in exchange for a Clinton pardon. Captains Quarters has the details.
