On Wars, Wolcott And Other Good-Guy Bloggers ...
Speaking of Israel, which we so recently were, and its seemingly insatiable appetite for walnuts -- along with it's horrible habit of hitting them to open them - with sodding great super-sized, sledgehammers -- James Wolcott weighs in.
And speaking of bloggers and blogrolls, which we also were, Wolcott is unarguably one of the big boys of the blogworld. So it's nice to know that we're still seen as 'suitable' in his valued, personal opinion.
But to get back to Israel's ever increasing bombing of Beirut, and the inevitable spilling of even more blood: far too much of it, the blood of the entirely innocent .
Our own 'Gert' has for a long time regularly blogged about Israel, Israelis, Zionism, Zionists and Jews in general. Though not to the exclusion of all else we would hasten to add. And he's certainly much more patient than we would ever be, regarding some extreme comments which have recently proliferated at his place.
Sheesh! You should see some of them. Really, you should.
Anyway, in his latest piece, Gert says something very similar (and equally sensible), to that which Wolcott does. Go see for yourself.
And guess what?
Gert's another of the 'goodies' upon whose blogroll we're pleased, nay proud, to remain. Just as we are with some of our other regular readers/posters.
Including Jultra, Mark from Ireland, Gorrila's Guides, Gordo at Appletree and Tom (the video whiz) at Current Era.
Thanks, fellahs. Your reciprocal inclusion on our own blogroll certainly ain't set to change: of that you can be sure.
Perhaps seeing today's extra plug-links will remind everyone that you all come highly recommended, and are absolutely 'must visits' -- on a regular basis.
Main point we're making? Meme of the day?
United we stand. Divided we fall.
Incidentally, if we've inadvertently ommited mentioning mates who didn't deserve such mistaken ommission, please excuse us muchly -- and please make an appropriate, sympathetic age allowance.
Then, quickly call us to account in our comment box and see how swiftly we can set about setting things straight.
