2 Stories On Israel/Hezbollah/Lebanon

#1
Israel agrees to a 48-hour ceasefire. Not the move I would have made, but then again I'm not the one fighting. A temporary ceasefire won't solve anything. But that's just my opinion.

#2
Israel is saying that the building in Qana that was hit fell eight hours afterwards. If you've been watching Fox News today then you've seen the video that shows Hezbollah firing rockets from the vicinity of that building. They, Hezbollah, denied that they were but the video clearly shows it. I don't know if the video has played on other networks because FNC were saying it was an exclusive from the IDF.

The IDF have admitted that the building wasn't a source of Hezbollah fire.

Bullshit. They have released a video showing Kassem rockets being fired from that very building.
Thats why it was hit.

Za said...

The video was not taken the day of the airstrike, and at the time of the airstrike, the building contained only civilians.

Attempting a misleading use of facts there John?

John K said...

Nope. Thats your department.
Does not matter the day of the strike or not. The enemy was using it as a launching platform. There fore it's taken out.
Any condemnation for placing civilians as human shields knowing they will be hit for propaganda purposes?

za got awful quiet john k.

Must have come across all the truth coming out on this one. Too much to spin.

John K said...

Yea..and I wonder if he still holds to the claim that the two Israeli soldiers kidnapped inside of Israel were actually in Lebanon. That they(Hezbullies); were not crossing the border to do the kidanapping that started Israels retaliation.
So far he(ZA); is the only person I have ever heard that from.
