Truth - the first casualty of war

Traditionally the first casualty in war is the truth and the latest Middle East conflict is certainly no exception with thanks to some astute investigation of the truth at zombietimes

Saint mentions in the quote below who the real war criminals are and sheds light on the hypocrisy that is Hezbollah and the propaganda promoting terrorists.

Every Katyusha - an inherently indiscriminate weapon - launched by Hezbollah was a war crime under international law.

Using civilians as human shields is a war crime under international law. On every single day of the war, Hezbollah violated Article 58 of Protocol 1, which requires parties to a conflict to "avoid locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas" because it had located its command outposts, weapons and ammo storage, and rocket launchers in residential areas - including in and under schools, hospitals and mosques - and consistently fired from behind civilians.

Israel is within its rights to pursue Hezbollah in populated areas under Article 28 of the Fourth Geneva Convention: "The presence of a protected person may not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations." My guess is that that right comes with or without cluster bombs, bombs which are legal under international law against soldiers or enemy fighters.

Do we go on?

Anyone want to remind Reuters and a few hundred newspaper editors about smoke - with or without photoshop?

Shall we spell it out again: Hezbollah are the war criminals here.

All terrorists are war criminals.

Every. Single. One. Every. Single. Time. They. Attack.
