The silent dogs this time are the great factories where the mainstream press has public opinion manufactured to their orders. Look at Gallaup, at CBS, at Rasmussen and at AP and you will find nary a word concerning the war in Lebanon. Only Pew has a report - and it is a positive report concerning suport for Israel.
Apparently the masters of the great press brothels have chosen to limit their support for terrorists for the moment. Not even the "made for mainstream" Hezbollah effort at Kana was enough to draw them. This is very untypical behavior on the part of a group able to find a dark cloud to cover any rainbow. Where are the editorials lambasting the administration for not "taking control"? In general they blame it for every sparrow that falls (and for not finding a cure for warts, too). Why aren't they howling?
I wish I could say that this is good news but I don't think so. There is something else cooking. Any speculation as to what it might be?
