Surprise! Surprise!

The Israel Defense Force has discovered that Hezbollah has developed a defense in depth along the Lebanon-Israel border and they are a trained regular army, not a motley collection of guerrillas. They were stunned to discover that Hezbollah wears uniforms and has multiple techniques for taking out tanks.

Expecting the Lebanese army to disarm Hezbollah is absurd. After decades of civil war and the effects of both Israeli and Syrian occupation, the Lebanese army lacks the resources of the average American state police force.

The bulk of the IDF is formed from guys fulfilling their national service obligations while Hezbollah is a veteran infantry force. The Israelis are taking heavy casualties for a minimum gain going against Hezbollah on their home ground.

Please, Stand By

Northern California is having a REAL Summer, thanks to the Global Warming [that doesn’t exist] and this is causing power outages [not all of them were created by Enron].

A major NAP [Network Access Point], Google, Blogger, and a number of other “tubes” are in the Bay Area. Expect things to be slow and lethargic until the heat breaks and power normalizes.

Spare some cooling thoughts for the people of St. Louis and NYC who are having their own power problems. Been there, done that, don’t recommend it.

Update: The LA NAP and MySpace also having problems.
