News Roundup

The tactics employed by the Lebanese government in capturing and killing “terrorists” remind me of the disregard shown by Israel towards civilian life.  It seems like the Palestinian (Lebanese I’d of thought by now?)  camp is under seige and a collective punishment is being rained down upon an innocent population (no water, electricity, shelling etc, does it remind anyone else of Gaza?).  Indeed when I started this blog during the July War I added the Chomsky quote “Wanton killing of civilians is terrorism, not a war against terrorism” in an attempt to condem Israeli crimes.  Now it seems to apply to the Lebanese Government.  Surely there are better ways to combat such groups other than full scale confrontation and war? 

Some news articles I found interesting.
