Good and Bad News

Actually only the first of two items from LGF constitutes news, and it is good: Hollywood Stars led by Nicole Kidman condemn Hamas and Hezbollah. The second item, also via LGF, is just more of the same:
Condoleezza Rice says you need a plan to disarm a terror gang like Hizballah. And then you need to hope they’ll do it voluntarily if you ask nicely enough.
“I don’t think there is an expectation that this [UN] force is going to physically disarm Hezbollah,” Rice told USA Today. “I think it’s a little bit of a misreading about how you disarm a militia. You have to have a plan, first of all, for the disarmament of the militia, and then the hope is that some people lay down their arms voluntarily.”

If Hezbollah resists international demands to disarm, Rice said, “one would have to assume that there will be others who are willing to call Hezbollah what we are willing to call it, which is a terrorist organization.”
