The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Geospatial confusion

Hezbollah guerrillas carry the coffin of fellow Hezbollah fighters, draped in a Hezbollah flag, during the funeral procession for ten militants, in the southern village of Srifa, Lebanon, Friday, Aug. 18, 2006, who were killed in conflict with Israeli forces. A total of twenty-five villagers were buried in Srifa Friday, as the ground was opened for several mass funerals across south Lebanon, the Muslim holy day and fifth day of the cease-fire, after residents decided it was finally safe and hospital morgues had time to make sure all bodies could be claimed.

If anyone can figure out definitively whether this is Lebanon or San Francisco, be sure to let me know.

I just love the Hezbullah Lebanese flag pictured here, with its hammer and sickle reminiscent of the Whiney 1960s. I suspect that, because of the obvious Socialist imagery, you won't be seeing this picture in any papers anytime soon...

Er.. that's the flag of the Lebanese Community Party who are part of the National Opposition with Hezbollah.

Thank you very much for answering that. Is the party name really "Community?" Or is it the Lebanese Communist Party?

(Either way, it's no surprise at all to see a bunch of "commies" aligning themselves with such a thug as Nasrallah...)

Respectfully yours,
