NB: as I post this CNN's headlines presents a severely skewed version of Hezbollah's latest statement ... spreading the lie, stiffling the gesture.

Confirmed: Blitzer blew off a significant Hezbollah gesture. (Hey, Wolf, where were you during the Cuban Missile Crisis?!)
Not only did Nazrallah /not/ say "If Israel continues to hit Beirut we'll hit Tel Aviv", not only did he actually say "If Israel hits Central Beirut", but he actually said Hezbollah would contain the fight. So ... Blitzer's bias showed, and CNN's. (Nice touch: the Israeli ambassador says this shows that Hezbollah is weakening and Anderson Cooper [a really ''nice'' guy, rrrrrright? Get it?] chimes in with "They're Islamist fascists" ... nice ... y'all gonna get Christmas bonuses for that?)
BTW: my post reads in part "The truly wicked only show themselves from time to time, and even then only for a moment."
Hey, I've been onto US media since 1973 ... Jonestown U was running special courses for CIA agents, so they could wage a media war against the democractically elected government in Chile.
You will reap what you've sewn all these years. Iran, Lebanon, Guatemala, Chile, Nicaragua ... malicious and mischievous you are, oh yes you are.
But trust: some of us have stepped back, to stay sane, but we haven't given you the field. Hear about the Indymedia kid in SF who's going to jail rather than hand over his tape? He's the sort I've spent my life with. You guys? *flips the finger*
enjoy your greasy burgers
