Someone is standing against the “Give War A Chance” strategy of the Bush Administration in the Middle East: Democrat Phil Dunkelbarger, who is running against US Rep. Steven Lynch in the MA 9th Congressional District:
The U.S. should insist on an immediate ceasefire.
The United States is, and will continue to be, committed to the preservation of the State of Israel, and we should condemn Hezbollahs wanton acts of violence, targeting Israeli civilian population. But we need to be equally committed to the protection and political and human rights of all other peoples in the Middle East as well. Concerning the continuing violence in Lebanon, it is unconscionable that the U.S. is not exerting all its influence towards achieving an immediate ceasefire.
… Oh by the way, all wars are environmental disasters, and this one’s the Mediterranean’s worst ever.
