Israel calls up reserves:

Israel Approves Reserve Call-Up, Fueling Talk of Ground Attack
Dec. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Israel expanded its bombing campaign in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and authorized the call-up of 7,000 army reservists, raising speculation about a possible ground invasion of the coastal enclave.

“This will be a long, difficult and painful operation,” Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told ministers in Jerusalem yesterday, Cabinet Secretary Oved Yehezkel said before the call-up was approved by a committee of parliament.

Yeah, well, it's always painful.

For those actually doing the fighting and dying, that is. Never for the Prime Ministers. Or Presidents. Or Congresscritters.

Kadima and Likud; Fatah and Hamas. Really, what's the difference? If you think American politics is a joke, then you've never seen Levant politics. I just love how Kadima and Fatah, in particular, get away with portraying themselves as "moderate" parties. It's times like these I wish Yahweh and Allah were real so they could come down and tell them to chill the fuck out, already. Really, what else is there to say?
