Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
Okâthe headlines today are all heralding the lifting of Israel's air blockade of Lebanon. We're told that Israel won't be lifting the naval blockade any time soon, though, as the elite international forces on the ground can't guarantee that arms aren't being shipped into the area yet. (I'm not holding my breath for that, either!)

Israel pledged to lift its stifling air and sea blockade of Lebanon on Thursday, bowing to international pressure and allowing massive rebuilding efforts to begin in the war-ravaged country. The Israeli Prime Minister's office made the announcement Wednesday, saying international forces would take over the task of preventing arms shipments from reaching Hezbollah guerrillas.

"Stifling?" Isn't that egregious use of emotional language, Ariel?
Of course, what Ariel and the rest of the press would prefer you to forget is that passenger flights have been landing in Lebanon for almost three weeks
So, in other words, even though
those dastardly Zionists are relentlessly and ruthlessly blockading the entire country of Lebanon, somehow British Airways managed to land in Beirut on August 17
Yeah, that's real
