A Reminder and an Encouragement

It's easy to forget, in the midst of so much media hand-wringing about violence in the middle east and dead civilians. But the Israel-Hezbollah/Hamas war has good guys and bad guys. In case you forgot, the good guys are the ones wearing the Star of David and targetting military objectives, not the ones shooting rockets indiscriminately into civilian areas or the ones who put human shields in front of the "soldiers." And it's also easy to forget, in between hearing so many half-admiring reports marvelling at the ferocity of the "resistance," that the good guys really are winning, just not quite as fast as recent U.S. military expeditions would have accustomed us to seeing.
