OPINIONFEST ON LEBANON



There's a blog on Lebanon called Siege of Lebanon -- the Lebanese are organizing their own blogosphere, apparently. And much in that vein, the Socialist Worker has this cheery little article. I hope much of it is true; I have no idea. I'm sure we anti-capitalists would like to see the revolt against capitalism in every social formation we like. I have to wonder how much of it really amounts to anything. It seems to me that all of our philosophical idealisms regarding "dialogue" are more than thoroughly addressed by Deborah Cook's critique of Habermas. The irrelevance of dialogue before power must weigh heavily upon the Lebanese, and so to be sure they are closer than the rest of us. At any rate, "self-empowering, 'freedom-founding' acts" appear to be the only redemption from this irrelevance.

And kudos to Lenin's Tomb for finding this piece in the Heathen Science Monitor, and this quote off of the Beeb:
Israeli Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer told Israeli Army Radio it would take the army 10 days to two weeks "to complete the job, and by that I mean that the area in which we want [an] international force to deploy is cleansed of Hezbollah".
Now what was that Bosnia thing all about, again?

Israel raided oil tanks and caused the biggest oil-spill in the history of Lebanon. Details on the magnitude of this environmental disaster can be found at Zena and Wael, posting from Beirut.

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own
blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
