God this photo kills me. The granfather reminds me of my Dad. He looks so weak...



A Lebanese boy offers juce to his grandfather as they sit on the road side, after they left from the southern Beirut suburbs after Israeli forces droped leaflets over the Lebanese capital, warning the residents of these suburbs to evacuate, Thursday Aug. 10, 2006. Israeli ground forces took control of a key southern Lebanese town and claimed strategic hilltop positions Thursday in a push to widen its hold on border areas before a possible drive deeper into the country.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

1. This is too sad...
I am hoping that this madness ends soon. It just seems that this world has really been thrown into chaos and I don't know how much more I will be able to stand.

Now you see why I don't watch the news? It's just too damn depressing.

5. Madness is an understatement
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 04:09 PM by malaise
but we must not believe photos even though Israel is throwing leaflets telling them to get out of their homes or die. I am fugging sick of it and I am no longer sure if it is the barbarian slaughter or the responses which sickens me more.

What did that old man do to Israel and the US -what??

Here's a link from the UN Daily Noon Press Briefing: By the Office of the Spokesman for the Secretary-General. I listen to these daily for some objective news.
