There’s a shocker

Mideast summit ends with little progress

AP/MSNBC:

Talks between Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the Israeli and Palestinian leaders, initially billed as a new U.S. push to restart peace efforts, ended Monday with little progress other than a commitment to meet again.

Blah blah blah blah.

Incidentally, where are Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, the two kidnapped Israeli soldiers?

And why doesn’t anyone seem to care?

Meanwhile, Brigadier General Yossi Baidatz, the head of Israel’s Military Intelligence’s Research Division claimed that Hezbollah’s strength has nearly been rebuilt to the levels it had reached when the fighting broke out last summer.

But:

Defense Minister Amir Peretz…charged that Hizbullah’s strength cannot be measured and that Baidatz was referring to the group’s potential.

Committee members slammed Baidatz’s inconsistent testimony and referred the issue to a subcommittee.

Whew. The subcommittee is taking care of it.

Is it just Murdoc, or is does fact that debates about rebuilding Hezbollah’s military strength even exist signify that the UN’s Resolution 1701 is an utter failure?

UPDATE: ACE adds

Maybe Jimmy Carter should give it a try.

Heh.
