Those aren't accidents...

"If Lebanon were Bosnia, the destruction of neighborhoods and the killing of civilians would have been labeled ethnic cleansing. In the case of Lebanon, we are told, the bombardment is simply creating a buffer zone to protect northern Israel from attack. But depopulating south Lebanon is not a legitimate tool for protecting the population of Galilee."
-- Editorial in America

I think this might be the first time I've read something in the American media that actually recognises that the civilian deaths in Lebanon, far from being "collateral damage," are an integral part of the plan.

Bravo to America for publishing this, especially in a country where honesty regarding Israeli military actions is always in short supply.
