Innocent deaths in Lebanon
I am dumbfounded by this position. It is Hezbollah that is actively selecting civilian targets. It is Hezbollah that is using 'Operation: Human Shield' as their prime method of fighting. It is Hezbollah that picked this fight. It is Hezbollah that chooses to hide in civilian buildings.
Also - many (if not all) of these 'civilian' buildings are owned, controlled, funded, or storage facilities of Hezbollah. Sorry Charlie, but if you decide to store weapons in a hospital, don't be surprised when said hostpital becomes a target!
I for one am sick and tired of the media's slant showing Israel as being evil. They write stories and print pictures talking about how horrible Israel is, and then they become very neutral or slanted toward praise when describing terrorist organizations. They go from being terrorists to 'government supporting militants' or 'resistance fighters'. HEZBOLLAH AND HAMAS TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS - STOP ACTING AS IF THEY ARE NOT!
Also - it is sickening how so many terrorist apologists say that Hezbollah is not *entirely* terrorist...that it has political and charitable arms. What in the world can they POSSIBLY be thinking? If you link yourself to a terrorist group, YOU ARE A TERRORIST! Consider - if you're an accountant for the Mafia, does that mean that you're not guilty of the crimes you've supported?
I can see it now: "Well, I'm a member of Islamic Jihad, but I'm a nice member! I don't blow anyone up! I just handle the books! The other guys in my building are the guys who blow up buses and schools!"
Sorry - it doesn't fly - if you ally yourself with terrorists, you're a terrorist.
Worse - if you ally yourself with france - they rub off on you too.
