What the--?

Was there anything we could have done to make your stay in Israel more enjoyable?

So apparently Israel has completely lost its mind? If I had the guts to turn on the comments around here, I'd seriously want to know.

Because a "prisoner exchange" in which one side gets two coffins and the other side gets five living bodies seems somehow...I don't know...not good.

If the article is accurate, a majority of Israelis even approved of the deal, which included releasing an unrepentant killer who once bashed in the head of a 4-year-old girl with a rifle butt.

On the other side, it was a frame-by-frame remake of Sept. 11, 2001:

"In the Gaza Strip, controlled by the violently anti-Israel Hamas group, the spectacle of the coffins drew people into the street in celebration, and sweets were passed around..."

With Hezbollah's Sheik Nasrallah and company laughing all the way to the (West) Bank.

"We are handing over the two Israeli soldiers that were captured by the resistance...and whose fate has been unknown until this moment," said senior Hezbollah security official Wafik Safa. "Now you know their fate."

Ba-dum-DUM! But seriously, folks...

"Hezbollah's commander in south Lebanon, Sheik Nabil Kaouk, called the swap an "official admission of defeat" for Israel. Red, white and green Lebanese flags, yellow Hezbollah flags and welcome banners hung in south Lebanese villages..."
Yep. Really pays to sit down and talk, doesn't it?

I wonder what kind of sweet deal President Obama will cut with the Taliban in exchange for our unconditional surrender in Afghanistan. Cash for skulls...? One free Marine for every two they promise not to kill on the way out...?
