Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Armitage Fears Bombing Campaign Will ‘End Up Empowering Hezbollah’

Richard Armitage dramatically broke ranks with his neoconservative
allies yesterday, saying in a radio interview that he feared it was
impossible to eliminate Hezbollah through airstrikes, and that by
attempting to do so, “you’re going to end up empowering
Hezbollah, and perhaps introducing an element into the body politic in
Lebanon that will take some great period of time to recover
from.” Armitage also criticized the Bush administration for
refusing to talk directly to Syria.

According to a database search, no major media outlets have yet printed Armitage’s remarks. Listen:

Armitage was Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan when the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon was bombed in 1983,
and served as second-in-command at the State Department under President
George W. Bush. In 1998, he signed the Project for a New American
Century letter to President Clinton urging regime change in Iraq.

The Bush administration has thus far “giving a tacit blessing
to the escalating Mideast violence. During crisis talks in Rome
yesterday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice bucked the “entreaties of nearly all of her European and Arab counterparts” to push for a ceasefire.
