"Of the 615 people so far confirmed dead, Save The Children says that almost half are children. They make up one third of the 3,225 injured, and about 45 per cent of the nearly one million Lebanese refugees are under the age of 18, according to Unicef." The Independent

"The prospect of a low intensity civil war and a de facto division of Iraq is probably more likely at this stage than a successful and substantial transition to a stable democracy."
"Iraq will remain "messy and difficult" for the next five to 10 years"
Lucky Iraq...
The headline in Haaretz is this:
Iranian President: Solution to Middle East crisis is to destroy Israel- and it's a headline because it is an appalling statement to make (ok not shocking for Ahmadinejad, but in general)...
The fact that Israel is not saying but doing the very same thing to Lebanon doesn't seem so appalling to the 90% of Israelis that support this campaign. Go figure, in death and destruction some are 'more equal than others'..
After 30 years of testing, it's finally out...
How long will it take to 'scientifically' prove this, this and this..
Against the advice, against the facts
"Tony Blair's unthinking oversimplifications about the Middle East belong in an army recruitment pamphlet - not an adult conversation." Oliver Miles
