Bomb threat looms over Lebanese villagers


edition.cnn.com

Diab Diab lost an eye and part of a leg trying to clear unexploded bombs from the fields of southern Lebanon. But now he is going to lose his job, too.

For though there are possibly thousands of unexploded bombs and shells littering the landscape, the money for cleanup operations has disappeared in the global recession.

Well this is just sad.

I mean the guy spends his days risking his life for his country. Defusing bombs that Israel left during their last little escapade into Lebanon. And now he's loosing his job because nobody wants to pay to keep kids from blowing up.

That's God's sense of humor for you.

He's even lost part of his eye and a leg to his profession, and yet they estimate thousands of other explosives. I think that might be a little sensationalized by CNN but in any case, that man still should have a job really.

I think disarming bombs and keeping people from blowing up is quite an important project to undertake.
