The Mad Chefs of the Devil's Kitchen

The wanton and indiscriminant destruction and massacre by Israel in Lebanon is heartbreaking and infuriating. How dare the Jewish State call itself civilized? The targeting and slaying of our UN soldiers, who were doing their job. The pathetic Kofi Annan can't even stand up for us!

And now have advanced to Phase 2 of in infernal game: Provoction of Syria. Israeli jets are testing Syria's defenses near the Anti-Lebanon Mountains between Masnaa and the Syrian border crossing at Jdaïdit Yabous.

La Repubblica has a link to a video of the bombing of Tyre.

To call Israel's attacks on Lebanon "wanton and indiscriminate" is simply inane. Had the attacks been "wanton and indiscriminate", Lebanon would now be without a power grid and without water and there would be tens of thousands of dead Lebanese. The attacks have been deliberate and precise. The deaths of Lebanese civilians are legally and morally 100% the responsibility of Hizbullah. Hizbullah places its infrastructure, its weapons and its fighters among the civilian population, in complete contravention of interantional law, ie a war crime. It does the same with the UN "peacekeepers".

The only "wanton and indiscriminant destruction and massacre" has been by Hizbullah firing missiles at Israeli population centers, intentionally targeting civilians. Also, by the way, a war crime.

Beg to differ, if this series of war crimes is deliberate and precise I suppose the hit on the UN observers was deliberate and precise too.
Ditto the strafing and bombing of fleeing civilians.
Suspect this series of events will clear upany lingering doubts about Israel that any right minded people may have had.

Is Qana "wanton" enough for you? Or is that characterization still too "inane". Or do we have to descend down further the path to Hell for it get really "wanton".

I know, the usual rule is "ne pas donner a manger aux trolls", but I can't resist.
