A Kinder Gentler Hezbollah???

No way!

Via Al-Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration would accept a political role for the Lebanese group Hizbollah if it disarmed, U.S. officials said on Thursday, a stance they said was not new but reflected recognition of the political clout of the militant Shi'ite Muslim organization.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice carefully avoided the stock U.S. phrase that Hizbollah is a terrorist organization in remarks to reporters, two days after Hizbollah showed its political power by drawing hundreds of thousands of people to central Beirut for a pro-Syria rally.

But she insisted that "the American view of Hizbollah has not changed" and other U.S. officials were quick to call the group a terrorist organization.

Yeah right. There's no way on G-d's earth they'll disarm. They might just pretend to do so. Either that, or they'll outsource it to some new group which they'll claim not to be involved with.

Koffi Annan is also going on about how the U.N. must accept Hezbollah.

Well what I'd like to know is, what the heck is there for the U.N. NOT to accept being that they're in bed with every rogue regime in the world.

Annan said the world needs to accept that in every society different groups may hold different views.

Yes, Koffi, there are different groups of people who hold different views. And there's always more than one side to a story. But so what? That still doesn't make one view, or one side of story as valid as the other. Intelligent, civilized people use their brains to determine what's valid, and what has no merit. In short, they, gasp, make value judgements.

But then again, I forgot, liberals aren't supposed to be judgemental. We're not supposed to view the killing of innocents as cruel and barbaric, but rather a valid political statement or a little quirk of a difference that makes us all unique, blah blah blah.
