...has exactly the kind of attitude that is needed to destroy Hezbollah once and for all.
the Lebanese people need to take responsibility for the actions of terrorists groups working from within their own country to stop Israel from having to carry out offensive actions
No 'friend', it is you who should be more aware of what you say as you are currently contradicting yourself.
First you say that there is a difference in ACCIDENTLY killing civillians, which I am assuming by your words, is OK with you, and then you say that Isreal is better at minimising civilian casualties. Well, which ones it then? If they can minimise it, why aren't they?
My intent is not to debate with you about who is at fault here, or who is right or wrong in a bloody stupid war, which is among other things, hugely biased.
What I did want to comment on, was how you could blame Lebanon for what Isreal does to its civillians. I think your comment oozes with ill placed blame and smacks of smug cheap progaganda.
Oh and by the way - whether or not civillians died 'accidently' or purposely matters not to those that love them, death is death. No matter how you look upon it. People who have nothing to do with this war - meaning ordinary people like you and me - are dying and suffering on both sides. Whether on the right or left, this is always the biggest tragedy.
I just want to know how you can say with certainty from where you are sitting, that those deaths were accidental and not purposeful?
So far, Israel's attacks have killed over 1000 innocent civilians including women and children.
Thus the conclusion must be that they trained at the Storm Trooper's school of combat.
As for terrorists and terrorism, oh please. The word has been used up to no longer have any meaning EXCEPT the ones our governments mean to rule us by. Look at what the US has done in other countries. Look at what Isreal and Hammas have done. Look at what the UK is allowing, by being dragged into one mess after another at the beck and call of Sir Bush. THen talk to me about 'terrorist' organisations, simply because it is listed by a country and its allies, who obviously have no problem arming and funding their own sides of the battle.

So what you're saying, is it is Lebanon's own fault their people are being killed? Wow, talk about your 'blame the victim' mentality. It wouldn't have anything to do with say, Isreal killing civilians would it? As far as 'terrorist' groups, you should check your sources. Only because the US and Isreal claim it, doesn't it make it so.
