I, Too, Would Have Bombed Them
I'm blatantly pro-Israel.
Hamas says the things that look like bombs were actually oxygen canisters. Israel says they were being taken from a place used to store ammunition.
Even if they turn out to be O2 canisters, they LOOKED like bombs (I think) and were in a suspect location. Don't be there when Israel is bombing. When men are there, they die.
If you google images of Grad missiles, you see the thing on the truck with added tail fins and warheads.
Why were the men in the yard wearing white coveralls with a head covering attached? I didn't see them from an angle to tell if they had face plates, but the the suits looked very much like American hazmat suits,
I hope Afghanis have learned not to shoot off rifles for joy in wedding celebrations. When they do, they get killed.
God, please keep the children safe. I hope Iraqi children have learned not to menacingly raise the empty hulk of a rifle carcass at American soldiers. When they do, they die.
Golda Meier: "We can forgive you for killing our sons. But we will never forgive you for making us kill yours."
Papa God, please forgive us.
Walt Whitman: "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day"
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.
I've that a better translation of the angels' message to the shepherds is "Peace to men of good will." Anyone have an opinion?
Peace of the Lord be with you.
