Israel Rejects Truce (So Does Hamas)

I guess that Hamas part wouldn't fit in the headline.

Both sides rejected any notion of a ceasefire soon, three days after Israeli leaders launched bombing raids with the declared aim of halting rocket salvoes from the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.

Keep an eye on that headline, it's been changing (as has the storyline) since I noticed it this morning. Both that headline and the "both sides" paragraph were in this feed earlier today, but they're gone now. Replaced with the only slightly less objectionable "Israel presses on with Gaza strikes amid truce talks".

Hamas could end this today if they wanted to. But they don't want to.

In other war news, Cynthia McKinney's good ship lollipop gets bumped by an Israeli patrol boat.

"Our mission was a peaceful mission to deliver medical supplies and our mission was thwarted by the Israelis -- the aggressiveness of the Israeli military," she said.

I don't doubt their effectiveness at enforcing their own blockade, but I'll bet you a paycheck they can be a lot more aggressive about it if they want to Cynthia. For example.

(offer withdrawn if she doesn't in fact earn a paycheck.)


There's video, but I can't bring myself to watch her or post it.
