Take a look at this and this, please...
"Israel has never agreed to a joint investigation, and I don't think that if anything happened in this country, or in Britain or in Italy or in France, the government of that country would agree to a joint investigation," Gillerman said. By NICK WADHAMS
Of course, Israel is blocking an investigation into events that took place on Lebanese soil and if Lebanon doesn't mind that the UN investigate the deaths of the UN's own people, then....
Amazing what the arrogance of power can do..
"The US has blocked the UN Security Council from issuing a statement condemning Israel's bombing of a UN post on the Lebanon border, in which four military observers were killed" The Australian
"The UN is useless, the UN is useless" cry the only two countries making it useless, the one who keeps ignoring all it's resolutions and the one who keeps vetoing them...
"The United States makes the U.N. work when it wants to work." Revoltin' Bolton
China expressed anger that the United States "watered down" a United Nations Security Council statement on the deadly Israeli strike on a UN observer mission.- Can West News
The watered down statement goes a little like this:" shocked and distressed"...
All the UN can do within the chains the US has clamped on it is say " shiver me timbers"...
What's that you hear running through your head now?:
"This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."
Hollow Men indeed...
So Israel gets what it wants:
The last witnesses to it's actions in South Lebanon are withdrawing...
Now that Aid agencies can't make it in:
"In effect there is no real humanitarian access in the south, the international community is deluding itself with talk of humanitarian corridors," said Christopher Stokes of Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF, Doctors Without Borders). Daily Star
And reporters can't make it in:
"Israeli bombardments, Flynn continues, have restricted photographers movements, and within the safe areas, "there's a limited amount to shoot." pdnonline
The south will soon become invisible.
"The United States, for its part, is egging on the bombing, apparently on the same theory that led to the mess in Iraq--that somehow a civilian population under bombardment will not blame the bombers, but understand the political necessity of displacing them, wrecking their homes, and killing their loved ones. It's an amazingly myopic view." Ruth Conniff
We all know that it was savagery like this that gave birth to Hezbollah, and all the other bogey-men...but the lies and barbarism of politicians and military commanders can only last for so long, before the tables are turned...and when they turn, it is just as ugly...after all, the world knows only ugliness now...
...and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!' And I'll look down and whisper 'No.'
Rorschach , Watchmen

Those coffins are very effective--and depressing.

I forgot all about Rorschach! I used to read that comic when I was in college.
