Same Rice Different Day

NPR's coverage of Rice's work as Secretary of State for US/Israel continues to lack any balance or objectivity. If all you knew was what Don Gagne, Renee Montagne and Mike Schuster present you would hear that Rice is on a "diplomatic mission" to "bring an end to the fighting" in Lebanon. However, if you have a little background information and "listen" between the lines you can figure out that Rice is on an Israel/US war mission. She's delaying any diplomacy so that Israel can continue pounding Lebanon, she's offering a 20 mile buffer zone for Israel in Lebanon (remember the 18 years of torture/murder/occupation that Israel already inflicted there), and she's demanding Hezbollah's disarmament. If NPR insists on calling it "diplomacy" then they should at least be accurate and say "her pro-Israel diplomatic mission" in which she seeks the destruction of Hezbollah at ANY cost before she'll push for an end to massive bombings and killings. To call her plan a "peace" plan is truly Orwellian.
