My friend who lives near Haifa, Israel, emailed this to me a little while ago:
WE ARE GETTING HIT ALL AROUND US THEY ARE SHOOTING MISSLES ONLY TO HIT CIVILIANS THE SIRENS HAVE BEEN GOING OFF ALL MORNING
Right wing blogger Michael Totten posted a piece about his friend in Lebanon who is upset and leaving because of the violence there. He had to shut off his comments because it got so nasty and people like the Keyboard Kommando Roger Simon, left this:

Your friend … and everyone else… should definitely read this. He might grow up.

Somebody responded appropriately:

Roger Simon returns from a day coasting around SoCal, his skin lightly parboiled from spiriting around in the sun from shop to shop. He boils a latte, and flicks on his PC. He visits Totten's blog and sees the latter's friend, an uppity Leb author of the Lebanese Political Journal, has voiced despair over being bombed out of his neighborhood by Israel! Simon's response: "He might grow up." Behold, the analytic genius and profound humanity underpinning Pajamas Media!

A man in the middle of this conflict is being lectured by a guy in his pajamas. Michael then responded with this.

This is a scary time and I hope it stops. All the violence. One thing is certain: the warmongers can't be trusted to offer up their opinions or ideas since they cheer-leaded us into the disastrous Iraq war and ushered in this state of existence.
