If human life is not precious by definition, then there really is no basis for ethical behavior, period. You may well be right.

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>then there really is no basis for ethical behavior, period.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Ethics and morals are much like beauty, aren't they? We all have our own wildly varying definitions.<br><br>For example, while I'd like to think we're all in agreement that in general you shouldn't kill someone, when you add circumstances opinions will diverge. Some folks would argue it's unethical and immoral to ever kill a person, no matter what. I on the other hand would argue it's often unethical and immoral *not* to kill someone. <br><br>We are nothing special, we are just a product of a violent unpredictable earth just like every other living animal on this planet, something our behavior shows time and time again. To apply something that's genuinely against our biological makeup like morals seems kind of silly and counter productive to me.<br><br><br><br>Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!<

No Pictures, but here's the story - <br><br>[color:blue]An Israeli missile hit two Red Cross ambulances parked in the southern Lebanese town of Qana, killing one person and seriously wounding two others late Sunday, according to a Red Cross official.<br><br>The Red Cross official in Tyre told CNN that the ambulances, clearly marked as Red Cross vehicles, were part of an effort to transport people wounded in the town of Tibneen to hospitals 20 miles to the west in Tyre.<br><br>Israeli officials have said they do not intend to carry out a full-scale ground invasion in Lebanon but will continue pinpoint attacks on specific targets.</font color=blue><br><br>Specific targets? I guess there are few more Red cross ambulances to bomb.<br><br>http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/07/24/mideast/index.html<br><br>a little bit further in the article<br><br>[color:blue]The Israeli military said Sunday it will distribute relief supplies to Lebanese citizens under the supervision of the Red Cross.<br><br>The IDF statement said the mission was "to maintain the daily life of Lebanese civilian population not involved in terror activity."<br><br>The humanitarian aid, to arrive on ships in Beirut's port, will be transferred to aid centers across Lebanon, the IDF said.<br><br>Israel has barred the United Nations from sending relief supplies into southern Lebanon, where most of the country's estimated 500,000 internally displaced people are located, according to U.N. emergency relief coordinator Jan Egeland.</font color=blue><br><br>------------------------------------------<br><br>I just don't know what to make of this. Israel bombs clearly marked Red Cross ambulances, then annouces it will distribute aid under the supervision of the Red Cross. Maybe the IronicChef will be able to explain this.<br><br>Oh and in case you missed it - Israel is the country responsible for humanitarian crisis. And it seems they decided that the UN should be barred from sending relief supplies. But they'll distribute relief supplies.<br><br>And somehow, IDF can determine which civilian population is not involved in terror activity (this must be the civilian population they haven't killed - yet)<br><br>[color:red]Allez Cuisine!
