let me guess, hizbullah convinced civilians they'd be safe there, then mounted rocket launchers right next to both building and opened up..

these civilians ought to learn by now..large groups of people should stay OUT of the same building..it's automatially a target (after the launchers send off their rockets)..IMHO..

AP pictures to follow. Maybe this time they'll learned how to set the time/date stamp so the stage won't be so obvious?

50 less parasites on the earth. They were probably all active Hezzie, or support structures therefore. The media should stop these reports. Far from making me weep, they make me ecstatic.

"The number of dead was not immediately known..."

Now, do they mean really dead or "Pali" dead?

The latter are those who fall off their biers but jump right back on again. They can be counted multiple times in any such assessment...

AMEN to that! The fewer vermin walking the earth the better. They are either active terrorists or sympathisers. That makes them all valid targets.

That was the picture from Qana in 1996, but Green Helmut Guy (10 years younger) was photoshopped to Looter Guy. In GHG's hands were a baby with its head blown off.

This worked so great the first time! Let's have an encore! The MSM are like Pavlov's dog: show them an atrocity photo (staged or not, they don't care) and they start slobbering all over themselves.

And after ignoring a month of warnings to get out of a war zone by Israel, even if not terrorists or terrorist supporters, they were so pathetically stupid that their "loss" has to be counted as a cleansing of the gene pool.

Over 50 people in TWO houses? What was going on a couple tupperware parties or something? Sounds like Qana v2.0 to me.

The traveling mortician is going to wear out the tires on his refrigerated truck, carting those cadavers from one msm photo op to another. Maybe that's why the Israelis are bombing all the roads and bridges, to keep him from getting to these propaganda events.

I'm sure the Hezbos can find a few children to smash in their heads and put under some concrete block before the cameras get there.

Aita al-Shaab, a mile inside Lebanon

Israeli soldiers have engaged in hand to hand combat in this town, ONE MILE from the border, and it is mostly secured. Someone wants to tell me that three weeks into the war, there are fifty civilians sitting around in one of its buildings?

These would be the same MSM who told us that the embedded reporters in Iraq couldn't be trusted to give us accurate portrayals of what was happening because they didn't have the benefit of "context" that only the MSM elites would give us?

"Frankly I don't care children of Hezziez die."

It may be an unfortunate necessity that these kids sometimes die, but I do care. The children grow up to be evil adults, part of this war is to end that cycle.

Stop the Hezbians and their evil contemporaries, and we may end up saving many children.

Do you think the total number of "victims" will be higher or lower than the Pirates win total when all is said and done?

Right now the Pirates have 41 wins

This has to be my all-time favorite from YNet, ria Reuters (naturally):

Security sources in Lebanon said at least 33 farm workers, including many Kurds and Syrians, were killed on Friday when Israeli aircraft bombarded trucks being loaded with fruits at a farm on Lebanon's border with Syria.

They said the farm was near the village of Qaa in the northern tip of the eastern Bekaa Valley. Aircraft fired at least three rockets at the trucks which were being loaded with peaches and plums.

ROFLMAO!

But muzzies seem to improvise their way out of such predicaments with relative ease, friend...

...they often require the "dearly departed" to walk themselves over to the set for the photo shoot.
