This is really fucked-up

Lebanon is officially a disaster area, Israel has declared a state of emergency. Israel, like an escaped pitbull running wild all over the neighbourhood, is bombing Gaza as well as Lebanon, and getting very close to the Syrian border. (Syria may be next up to be savaged.) People are basically just trying to get the hell out, not easy to do since the borders are basically closed.
Bush, at the G8, called for Syria to use its influence with Hezbollah to get the Lebanese militants to disengage. Syria responded by saying it will back Lebanon however it can.

Over 100 dead, mostly civilians, some of them little kids. Okay USA, time to put the pitbull back in its crate. Please.
