Remember the Alamo

Whether Israel succeeds or fails in it's efforts against Hezbullah, at this point, the key battle has already been lost. Across the Arab world, the resistance of Hezbullah has gained massive support, and its fighters and leaders have become almost mythical symbols for the greater resistance against Israel and the US.

This fight is their Alamo, and it will be a rallying cry we will hear for the duration of this "generational war."

  • Check out what Billmon has to say.

    Soon, we may all be saying, “Remember the Alamo.”

  • Amazing how a lost battle can rally and motivate. They should not celebrate to much, Isreal will win this war and has the ability to destroy all of them if they unleash their superior military abilities.

  • Mustard, yeah.

    Time, I've been thinking alot about the idea of martyrs today. The people who died on 9-11 are our most current parallel.

    Their deaths were taken for political reasons to drive the country to war. Or maybe pat tillman. Or Jessica Lynch.
