Lebanese amnesia...

Milton Viorst writes an op-ed for the LA Times about Lebanon and forgets that Hezbollah kidnapped 2 Israelis and killed 7 others...
Basic to the deadlock is the steady growth of the Shiite community, which is now acknowledged to be the largest of the country's major sects. Its principal voice is Hezbollah, an organization that is, all at once, political, social, religious and military. A year ago, Hezbollah's militia single-handedly stopped an incursion of the Israeli army into south Lebanon, significantly enhancing its prestige across the country. But when it demanded more political power as a reward, it was rebuffed, and its ministers quit the Cabinet. Hezbollah's parliamentary representation, however, remains strong.
Then, later in the article he repeats the charge:
The U.S. position doesn't carry much weight with the Lebanese these days -- mostly because of its role in Israel's invasion last year, when American officials did little or nothing to stop the incursion.
Meanwhile, Hezbollah still holds its two Israelis captive...and has not even allowed the Red Cross to visit them.

The ignorance of 'professional journalists' is simply astounding. Is there an editor at the LA Times? If so, is he or she admired for their child like qualities?

Newspapers can't die fast enough, they're so full of annoying garbage and bullshit it's irritating.
