Chastened

I wrote below about supporting Israel, thoughtlessly neglecting the presence of several hundred thousand Americans, military and civilian, in Iraq.

This doesn't mean I don't support Israel in their attempts to have the Lebanese government secure control over southern Lebanon and to stop the "government" in Gaza from allowing military actions from that space. It means I trust they will take the security of our personnel into account in making decisions about how to proceed. That may necessarily require them to be a little less gung-ho than I had first thought desirable.

Just another example of why it is good that I am not the king.
