Is this the best we can do?

Resurgent Hezbollah
—Hugh Hewitt

The L.A. Times ran a piece this past Sunday detailing the rearmament of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah. In the nearly two years since the cessation of war with Israel in South Lebanon, Hezbollah has built their inventory of rockets to 27,000--more than double what they possessed in the summer of 2006--when their kidnapping of Israeli soldiers tipped off the battles of that summer. Many of these missiles can hit Tel Aviv.

Clearly the tensions in the region are building towards another immense explosion. American diplomacy can continue to try and defuse the situation, but the Iranian-Syrian-Hezbollah axis is tighter now than it has ever been.

This is the backdrop of the American election in the fall. Senator Obama is **the least prepared** of the three candidates to superintend American efforts to prevent such a war or end it if it breaks out. Senator McCain's greatest strength as a candidate is that our enemies know he is not a man to test.

**In the 2004 election, I brought up the subject of the upcoming Nov. 2004 election to one of my brothers. His response about the two candidates (Pres. Bush and Sen. Kerry) was something to the effect of: "Is this the best we can do?"

Well apparently so ... and it "ain't gettin' no better."
