Bush replied: "See, the irony is what they need to do is get Syria to get Hizbollah to stop doing this shit and it's over."Watch (or listen) as Bush delivers these crucial words without pausing to finish chewing!
Dr. Yousef Akkash is a French-educated surgeon and Adel's brother. It is his job to oversee the funeral, as his father is too distraught to do so. He enters the basement of a mosque near the family home and joins two doctors whose job it is to separate out body parts and try to figure out which part should go in which grave. It's extremely messy. Finally, with a cleric's approval, they decide to put the 12 mangled corpses into six graves.
Dr. Adel claims to not know if his brother really was a Hezbollah official but says he hopes it's true, "so there can be some reason behind this tragedy."
He's upset and angry but can still talk of peace with the people who did this. "All people want peace," he tells me in English. "As do the people of Lebanon, but we need justice amid this occupation. We want peace and justice for all people, Muslim and Christian, Arab and Jew."
But in the makeshift morgue he holds up part of a baby's body and asks the recoiling reporters to come closer.
"Come see the arms and weapons my brother had," he says, holding up a tiny arm. "Here is your 'terrorist.'"
...A man named Tahir Ahmed asks me where I am from. When I tell him, without a trace of hostility he asks me to "tell the American people we are thankful for your country because it gives weapons to Israel that are used to kill our children."
Now who do you think will get the revenge later for what Israel is doing now over a couple of captured soldiers? (As though that were anything but a pretext; what do people think this is, Saving Matt Damon?)From any number of angles, this action, and our support of it, smells like a horrible mistake, and not just for the obvious reasons. We will most definitely see.
...boo friggin hoo...
...just eliminating future terrorists IMO...
...We need to make the bomblets that are packed into standard Cluster bombs smaller. No need to be wasteful. The environment and all that...
...Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim...
