Satellite picture show Beirut devastation, Lebanon is dying
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 06:45 PM by tocqueville


These two satellite images provided by GeoEye show the same area of Beirut, Lebanon before and after Israeli bombardment. The image on the left was taken Wednesday July 12, 2006, and the image on the right was taken Monday July 31, 2006. (AP Photo/GeoEye)

___________________________________________________________________________

There is practically no fuel left in Lebanon which means that the two remaining power plants will cease to work soon. That means no electricity, no functioning hospitals. All deliveries of fuel, food an medecine from the outside (mostly Red Cross) are stopped by the Israeli naval blockade.

What do you call this ? I call this a crime against humanity. And it will be labelled like that.
