Who Will Prevail?

“It is time for a new Middle East. It is time to say to those who do not want a different kind of Middle East that we will prevail, they will not.” – Condoleezza Rice

The atrocities of war in the Middle East rage on… Hezbollah firing rockets indiscriminately into Israel, killing innocent civilians, Israel’s bombing creating a humanitarian crisis throughout Lebanon. And meanwhile in Iraq, Bush is sending additional troops into Baghdad with sectarian violence on the rise.

The notion of prevailing is meaningless: with every missile, every bomb, every death, new hatred is fueled on both sides… this war is spinning out of control, because wars are not won, with violence everyone loses, no one prevails. It is a lose-lose situation.
