Amidst a great fanfare of trumpets, Condoleezza Rice announces that there will be a "new kind of middle east". Violence promptly escalates in southern Lebanon and the unfortunate village of Qana (already a recipient of ordnance ten years previously) is hit by a targeted bomb. Many children are killed in the blasts. If this is a new kind of middle east, it looks remarkably like earlier versions. "Tinkerbell" Rice flits back to Israel like some kind of a "peace fairy", meets Ehud Olmert, is rebuffed by Lebanese officials, issues pronouncements, looks concerned, and flits back to Washington promising lots more of the same.
