Turning Point?!!!

It seems like history is repeating itself. Back in 1996, Israel bombed the UN headquarters for refugees in the city of Qana killing 110 civilians. This incident led to the acceptance of Israel of a ceasefire.

I woke up this morning to the news of an attack that can only be described as a turning point. An Israeli air strike at a residential building in Qana caused it to collapse killing 55 civilians including 27 children present in the shelter. It’s a war crime as the Lebanese Pm described it. This caused the Lebanese PM to cancel the Rice's visit to Lebanon, which was scheduled to take place today. He had no choice, as violent protests took to the street of Beirut in front his office and UN headquarter. They stormed into the UN building shouting anti-Israel and anti-US slogans.

What does all this mean? Well I think Israel has carried out a counter productive move. Instead of destroying Hezbollah or weakening it, Israel has strengthened Hezbollah's popularity in a dramatic way. There's a huge demonstration gathering as I speak in downtown Beirut. These kinds of mistakes only make the situation more complicated and fuel the hatred.

Hey SA do you think this attack on Qana was done to sabotage Rice's efforts and make sure that she end up canceling her trip to Lebanon or have the Lebanese cancel it for her?
The UN rep for Israel has promissed a video that shows Hizbollah firing missles from that same location where the bombs landed. I would pull a Google map on that area and compare to video to see if the building signatures are the same. I have a feeling that we will be seeing a lot of BS and cover up.

I expect a big cover up too. The Israeli UN rep. said that video they will show Hezbollah firing missiles from a similar location. He said similar, that's important. Many here believe that this was done to sabotage Rice's visit. The death toll from that attack stands at 60, including 37 children.

That's exactly what I heard "similar" when the UN rep was on TV, I smelled the rat right there and then.

Yup, that's what he said: SIMILAR.
Besides, Qana is a little far from the border. So I'm not sure if rockets fired from that area are effective anyway.

Sounds like target practice.
