With so much emotion and bias clouding perspective on the conflict in the middle east, it can be difficult to engage in a honest, unfettered debate about the most recent fighting between Israel and Lebanon.
Western governments in particular seem uncertain of what role they should play in resolving the conflict.
Fortunately, two of the greatest political minds of our time - Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell - came to the table for a similar (if slightly out of context) debate in 2003 on The Daily Show as part of a now defunct segment called "Even Stephen". God, how I miss Even Stephen. It was the one place to find insightful, well-measured dialogue on current events. Also, peep the lightning round.
