In her Jerusalem Post column, Caroline Glick brings an uncomfortable clarity to the war in which Israel is engaged: “How I spent my summer vacation.” The clarity of Glick’s column derives from her perspective as an Israeli with a gimlet eye. In a great column for NRO, Andrew McCarthy brings the same kind of clarity with an American perspective: “Course correction.” McCarthy writes:
Israel’s war against Hezbollah is a watershed in the war on terror. As long as we understand that it’s not just Israel’s war. And it’s not just against Hezbollah.
Hezbollah is Iran. It is Iran’s wholly owned proxy warrior. It is fighting Israel. It is an enemy of the United States, because its master, Iran, is an enemy of the United States. This is our war.
