It's For the Children

In Southern Lebanon 34 children died by an Israeli bombing. It's war. They are civilians. Hezbollah uses civilians, children, as shields. Get mad at Israel if you want, but Hezbollah and Hamas have had no problem killing children over the years. An apt quote:

"One must understand the Hezbollah is using their own civilian population as human shields," said Israeli Foreign Ministry official Gideon Meir. "The Israeli defense forces dropped leaflets and warned the civilian population to leave the place because the Hezbollah turned it into a war zone."
Hezbollah doesn't care. Israel must press on....thousands of dead would dilute the numbers of children, no doubt. Wipe out Hezbollah. If that means wasting whole cities......

War is hell. It's too bad Hezbollah started one.

And it's too bad Hezbollah refuses to stop it. And they are refusing to stop it, or to negotiate. Their one demand is for Israel's unilateral ceasefire.

Hey Mama!
Love your blog. Thanks for visiting. Love your takes on housing.

It is so easy to blame the "civilized" neighbor for finally addressing the uncivilized neighbor on the only terms he understands.
