Are you reading what you're posting?<br><br>Let's for just a second pretend that Israel's intel was good. That there were Hezbollah fighters in the building and a rocket launcher on the roof. That being the case, how do you propose they hit the men and ordinance without targeting the building? Should they drop leaflets a day before and request that Hezbollah move their men and launchers 100 yards away from the building so the bombers can get a better shot? <br><br>Unfortunately, the intel was n/g, and the wrong people were killed. But it's not as if the plan was to flatten a house and kill an innocent family just for giggles. Although I daresay that story will also be played up.<br><br>
The president of Iran was democratically elected. We can't just decide that anyone who disagrees with our perspective is automatically a "tyrant."<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

In that case, Israel wouldn't be the first to "buy" bogus intel. <br><br>That being said, they have acknowledged that it was a mistake. I don't think they're xeroxing Dubya's policy of bending information to match a rationale. But I doubt they're taking the time to thoroughly vet the information they get. They've set an aggressive schedule to push Hezbollah out of missile range, so they're not going to wait an extra day or two to verify a target.<br><br>But, as I said in my last post, you will read into the news what you want to see. So if you want to believe that Israel is deliberately blowing up kids, nothing I or anyone else can say will persuade you otherwise.<br><br>

<br>Southern Beirut before and after shots.<br><br>No Rockets or Missiles were ever fired from Beirut (it's too far away).<br>But American made F-16 jets can easily fly over Beirut and drop American<br>made smart bombs, flattening one apartment building at a time.<br><br>The Israeli's are nice enought to drop leavelets before destroying these<br>people's homes.<br><br>[color:red]Allez Cuisine!
