The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

We Must Believe Media. Right?

If we are to believe the media in this Gaza offensive by Isreal, then there is a vast majority of children killed in this battle. How?

Israel showed no signs of slowing its bruising 19-day offensive against Gaza's Hamas rulers, striking some 60 targets on Wednesday. Israel launched the onslaught on Dec. 27, seeking to punish the Hamas militant group for years of rocket attacks on southern Israel. The offensive has killed more than 940 Palestinians, half of them civilians, according to Palestinian hospital official. (AP Photo/Eyad Baba)

So, if we are to believe CR(ap), then 1,000 "palestinians" have been killed in Israel's offensive onslaught of the innocents. Half of those deaths have been "civilian" with over 300 being children.

THAT MEANS THAT OVER 2/3 OF THE CIVILIAN CASUALTIES ARE CHILDREN??!?!

Does that sound right to you? I know that there is a larger than average number of kids in this region due to the willingness of young adults to kill themselves off, but, you would think that the kids, and especially their parents would take them AWAY from the war zone. Right? riiiight??

Ok, granted in a normal society they would. But still. Think about this some more. You have 500 terrorists killed, over 300 kids, and only 200 civilian adults (according to the media) that were in an active war zone and ended up dead. In other words, there were almost as many children as terrorists killed while Israel was taking out terrorist targets.

Now, shouldn't these numbers be raising questions by the media as well?

Meanwhile, Hizballah continues to fire their rockets in to Israel and the U.N. terrorist-keepers have even found rockets prepared to launch as well. So, who wants peace?
