'Hezbollah is a humanitarian organization in the same sense as the Mafia is a dispenser of charity and compassion'...

Micheal Reagan has it right.
Hezbollah’s leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, sounded like the neighborhood Mafia don, offering money for “decent and suitable furniture” and a year’s rent on a house to any Lebanese who lost his home in the month-long war. It was his way of telling the people who their real friends are. It’s not the toothless Lebanese government, he was telling them, but your friendly neighborhood hit men who have your best interests at heart

I think he may have learned the tactic from another mob boss, Al Capone, well known for handing out cash and other goodies to the folks in the neighborhood when he wasn’t beating people to death with a baseball bat or celebrating St. Valentine’s Day by having his enemies machine-gunned to death.
Of course, the NY Times would rather discuss Hezbollah's "Vast Social Services Network".

In the same article, Reagan is right-on with this too...
the silliest thing to emerge from the whole farce was President Bush’s comment that Israel had won the engagement with Hezbollah
I've got major Bush-fatigue... and Frist/McCain-fatigue too for that matter.

Maybe it's time to move to Australia... or at least try to recruit John Howard, cause it's not going to get better with Speaker Pelosi and President Gore.

Gulianni looks better and better.
