Out of Curiousity

Hezbollah was using ALL of these apartments and homes to launch rockets from?

Forgive me if I seem a bit skeptical.

Well,...maybe apartments that looked like these.

I wonder if this was one of Adnan Hajj's photos...

Hajj worked for Reuters, IIRC, and not the AP, which is the source of this photo.

It came out today that the AP is also facing problems with doctored photos.

Not trying to start an argument or anything. I've just lost all respect and trust in any media lately.

Nah, I'm not distrusting the news source. I was in a foul mood when I posted that last post. My apologies.

It is a shame that Israel is killing civilians in this war. It is also a shame that Hezzbolah is using them as human shields.

St. Jimbob of the Apokalypse said...

And the Arab Street won't blame Hezbollah for putting the civilians in harm's way, they'll just blame Israel for the carnage. Like I said elsewhere, either side on this one is the wrong side, like Westboro Baptists rallying at a Gay Pride parade.

Westboro is NOT a Baptist church. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to get them to take Baptist out of their name. *grumble*

I actually heard that Phelps, or whatever his name is, is a lawyer. He makes a practice of suing anyone who interferes with, denies permission to, or physically attacks his protests. He has made hundreds of thousands of dollars doing this. Wouldn't that be something if his entire schtick was just about making easy money.
