Jumblatt: Our rivalry with Hezbollah not lasting (he is not kidding!)

Oh, boy, take a look at this:

Druze politician Walid Jumblatt has said that the Lebanese government and the majority bloc would support Hezbollah and the resistance. In a meeting with Qatari Premier Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim Al-Thani, Jumblatt reportedly sent a message to Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah to announce that hostility between the two sides is temporary and Mount Lebanon would support the resistance movement, al-Jazeera TV reported.

Sure looks like Jumblatt, a.k.a. the "weather vane", has sensed that the "weather" has changed in the Middle-East.

Like Gollum of the "Lord of the Rings" (whom he amazingly resembles, see picture), Jumblatt just can't resist the urge to offer his services to anyone who might get him what he covets (in this case, association with, and protection by, whomever might rule in Lebanon).

This long time CIA agent (who also worked for the French and, of course, the Israelis) now is making overtures towards Hezbollah. Having been utterly defeated (both militarily and politically) by the Resistance, Jumblatt is now offering his "support" to Hezbollah.

What is interesting here is that we are witnessing the breakup and self-destruction of the pro-US coalition into mutually hostile and bickering groups. While Hariri is making statements that he will "never surrended to Hezbollah" and Siniora throws in the towel and accepts all the terms of Hezbollah, Jumblatt says that he supports the Resistance.

Like the Three Stooges, Hariri, Jumblatt and Siniora will now point fingers at each other for their debacle and give everybody else in the Middle-East a good laugh looking at their fights with, and recriminations against each other.

It will never cease to amaze me how utterly incompetent the USraelian Empire is in selecting its stooges. Think Marcos, Noriega, Saddam, Abbas, Karzai, Pahlavi and, of course, the Hariri-Siniora-Jumblatt trio. Don't they all look like clowns? If it were not for their ruthlessness and the innumerable number of their victims all these USraelian stooges would look hilarious, grotesque, ubuesque.

In a world were Hollywood actors become politicians, most of these stooges should consider becoming actors: they would make us laugh even more, and nobody would be harmed by their antics.
