Israel-Gaza-Lebanon reading assignment

If you'd like some perspective from places other than a state-run media that calls the capture of enemy soldiers "kidnapping" and the bombing of civilians "defense," try these: Chris Floyd, of course. And Billmon. And Robert Fisk. Also, Juan Cole and The Nation point out that Bush insisted that Syrian troops leave Lebanon, which they did, but that Bush now blames Syria for not controlling Hezbollah in Lebanon--by remote control. (An interesting bit of pundits not wanting to take credit for an idea: On Juan Cole's blog, he credits The Nation for this observation--but The Nation presents it as a quote from Cole.)
