Taking Ownership Of The Results Of War

The pictures alone are enough to make you cry. The video, shot by the BBC, is even worse. Watching people as they are in the midst of having their world ripped apart is heartbreaking. Knowing that the devastation is caused by weapons made in this country, fired by a country with our full support, and that the reality of what is happening in Lebanon is being whitewashed by our own media, is sickening.

I’m sure that many will see my mere mention of this as a clear indication of my anti-Semitism, but I really don’t care. I have nothing against Israelis, just like I have nothing against Americans, but I do have a problem with countries that carry out acts of aggression against innocent civilians and the people that support such policies. How is it that Bush and Olmert can make that same statement replacing “countries” with “terrorists” and “Israelis/Americans” with “Muslims” and receive applauds, and those clapping never think twice? If Bush wants to spout on about creating an “ownership society” then he and his supporters better step up and own their part in this mess.

The guy on the right in the 7th row of paired photos in the green helmet is a movie director working for Hezbollah.

There are 4 pictures of the same dead child. The article you link to is full of inaccuracies and I don't have much respect for any website that puts Israel and Israeli in quotes.

Catch a freakin' clue, you're being played and by some really wicked evil people. Maybe I'm making a wild assumption thinking you care.

Stupid liberals.

Anonymous--Are you seriously saying that you don't believe innocent people (children included) are dying in Lebanon? You believe that all the pictures and videos are fake?

Hey, speaking of being played, reading Michelle Malkin isn't good for your (mental) health, maybe you should take a break for a while and read some real news (and yes, that does mostly come from outside this country, and no, speaking that truth doesn't make me an America hater).
