Citizens of Hizballistan
Virtue or fault, I watch very little broadcast/cable news. However, about three days per week, 4 minutes or so will be watched in the early morning while inhaling some semblance of a breakfast before work. This morning was an on the ground report from Bint Jbail, most likely from Fox News, noting the absolute decimation of the village.
First to mind was a recollection of Israeli pamphlets dropped incessantly warning residents all over south Lebanon to head north of the Litani River.
What the scene showed was astonishing to these eyes. After the leaflets, after Qana, and hours after the IDF pulled back to their side of the border and left the rubble behind, mothers were walking up the streets and back into town - with their children in tow.
Women bringing their children back to Bint Jbail. Again, one day after Qana. Hours removed from fighting in the same town.
Maybe it's just me, but that stopped me in my tracks thinking what I would be doing with my own children...and watching other parents bringing theirs back.
Speaking of Qana, there appear to be at least some inconsistencies regarding the Qana site recovery, most compelling being the apparent unnatural rapid onset of rigor mortis.
