Well, finally. Nearly a month after the conflict between Israel and Hezbullah has ended, the news wires finally
give us some glimpses of some of the distruction caused by Hezbullah's unguided, ball-brearing-filled rockets.
Too little, too late, guys. If you genuinely
wanted to be fair, you would've sent these photos over the wires a month ago
We're also learning from these captions that Amnesty International has suggested that Hezbullah may have committed war crimes
by targeting civilians deliberately.Hello?
Any mention of their hiding behind
civilians would be nice.
"The scale of Hizbullah's attacks on Israeli cities, towns and villages, the indiscriminate nature of the weapons used, and statements from the leadership confirming their intent to target civilians, make it all too clear that Hizbullah violated the laws of war," said Amnesty International's Secretary General Irene Khan.
That's funny. Hezbullah admits
targeting civilians, yet they're still received as the de-facto
spokesmen for Lebanon, while the press continues to bray about Israeli "abuses."Check the article out
if you want to see some photos of fairly extensive damage in Israel that the press hasn't seen fit to publish so far. The running tally is currently something like this:
"Damage and Destruction" in Lebanon: 5,000 photographs.
In Israel? 5
Great objectivity, guys.
