What I haven't seen on MSM: Hezbollah Takes BBC Into Wasteland of Lebanon
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 08:59 PM by Tom Yossarian Joad
A video to give an idea of what many Lebanonese cities are looking like today.

On edit:

IV. DEATH BY WATER


PHLEBAS the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep seas swell
And the profit and loss.
A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers. As he rose and fell
He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

(excerpted from T.S. Elioet's The Wasteland): http://www.bartleby.com/201/1.html

2. "Thousands of Homes Crushed and Detroyed"
but that would detract from the Israelis suffering in bomb shelters and living to tell about it.

8. Yes...
And it's a terrible tragedy no matter where it happens. The innocents having their lives taken or destroyed for the posturing of politicians is heinous at best.
