    Your title is erroneous. Israel accuses but provides no proof. Even the title of the article makes this clear.

    all the western stories covering those mention how many rockets hezbollah has launched, but there's no estimate for how many shells and rockets israel has fired.

    why is that?

    I'm with you there Zim.

    Even CNN is reporting a rather slanted view of the situation.

    Now this is an issue that all Americans can stand behind!

    A Constitutional amendment banning the use of kittens and puppies
    as Weapons Of Mass Destruction.

    Lead story from Yahoo:

    "Israel tightens noose around Lebanon"

    A more fitting description of the situation I think. I saw a photograph earlier tonight of Beirut, power knocked out and much of the city aflame. A more fitting picture of the situation.

    CNN last night had Anderson Cooper in an Israeli bomb shelter. It's scary that Yahoo!(!) has been providing better balance than CNN.

    I doubt very much Hezbolla would have the know how on making and using missiles, Im sure someone like Syria or Iran has advisors on how to store,maintain and fire these systems. Spinning this off like so many masters here love to do is still spin. Someone has given them these missiles and the knowhow to use. Lets refrain from spin.we get enough of that.

    Part of the determination will come for comint, dialects-terms used and such. It fill be post facto built and will only be a guess till hard proof is provided if there is any and it is true. I hope it is not proven.

    A biq question here is this terrorist group having these missiles, we are talking medium range missiles given to terrorist groups by Iran. Some of these things are radar guided. Hezbollah is asking for it, Israel will chase em out of Lebanon but it wont be pretty.

    Talking about bias.

    I just read the news from both CBC and Fox News, and find it very interesting how Fox news leaves a lot of facts out.

    For example:
    1.
    There is no mention of the death toll of the Lebonese in Fox news.


    2. CBC also talks about how Israel bombed power station near Beirut.

    Fox News never mentioned that the power was out because the power station was and bombed. They make it sounds like a few power poles accidently got knocked down.

    I am not saying that either source is any better than the other. But it is important to find information from both side of the story.

    most stories mention how many rockets hezbollah have fired and the israeli casualities. i had to do some looking for the other side, but here it is:
    148 lebanese vs 24 israeli. and the US media and gov't are sympathetic to the israelis. i conclude that, again, the lives of white people count for more than the lives of brown people.

    It just keeps getting better.:(

    India has postponed peace talks with Pakistan because it suspects that militants based there are responsible for the train bombings that killed 179 people in Mumbai.

    http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/76A98F09-E93F-4F96-A92B-A97D1C6B27C3.htm



    Israeli warplanes have killed at least 25 civilians and wounded 33 others in a series of new air attacks on southern Lebanon.


    One air strike killed at least 10 people in the coastal city of Tyre on Sunday evening. Another raid destroyed several houses near the Israeli border and killed at least 16 civilians.

    The latest deaths mean that Israel's offensive against Hezbollah and Lebanon has killed at least 130 people since Wednesday.

    Most of the civilian victims of today's attacks died when their homes were struck by Israeli bombs or missiles, Lebanese police said.
