I come to believe that there a different ways Americans value the lives of citizens.
On CNN today I almost choked on my food when Israeli General Ruth Yaron explained how civilians stayed in targeted areas against their will to serve as shield. Seriously who can buy this talk? So the Khezballah (Israeli accent) is in the same time not letting civilians leave, waging a guerrilla, trying not to make themselves visible, and hiding behind civilians…
By the way CNN spent the whole day talking about Haifa who had accidentally 3 dead today, because of an attack that Khezballah claimed it was answering for the targeting of residential areas in the suburbs of Beirut that kills more than 30 people per day. The whole day interviewing Israeli officials, mayors, truck drivers, people, going into shelters. bouhou demons outside poor Israelis wake up to your condition of spoiled mediatized people. ask yourself how mediocre your government has been in handling this issue!
30 Syrians were killed in a factory in the Bekaa, for no good reason, every day you have 30 to 40 people getting killed in Lebanon and CNN only focuses on Haifa and other events taking place in Israel. I’m looking at CNN and the only thing I see is how Haifa residents are psychologically weakened in their shelters, how confusion spreads in Israel due to the “terror” attacks.
Please somebody do something… Somebody open another TV station in the US! This can’t last, I have friends having nervous breakdown over there… Where was CNN when the Qana massacre happened? Did you guys saw the babies completely disfigured being carried out of the crumbling building?
By the way, even Ehud Olmert did not raise the “human shield” argument when answering to a press question that because the Kosovo war was handled the same way and many civilians were killed, the Israelis should not receive moral preaching from anyone.
Today Condoleeza Rice said after pushing everyone to vote for the infamous UN security resolution that actually gives the possibility for Israel to legitimately fuck Lebanon (following the expression of a good friend), that it is not sure Hezbollah will accept to stop firing. Why? Oh why? Weren’t the rules of the game simple for everyone to see? I mean you’re the secretary of state of the US and you can’t understand that Hezbollah is reacting to Israeli aggression?
Let’s keep something clear in mind: Israel started the war. Nobody in the history of wars responds to a simple kidnapping of soldiers by waging a war. Then, the next thing we need to keep in mind is that Hezbollah clearly states that it will stop its rocket attack once Israel stops its invasion of the country and its targeting of infrastructure, etc. So can we make it simpler to you? Stop invading the country, stop thinking you can’t take out a group that has taught you the most humiliating defeat. Go back home and stop destroying. Stop taking orders from the Americans. Negotiate, and you’ll see very moderate views exchanged. Step down from your pedestals, and stop thinking that you’re fighting terror. Because you are the terror caused to millions of people here.
