BBCs Fergal Keane may need some guidance

The questions journalists in Lebanon should be asking the refugees

1. Were there missile launchers in your village?

2. Were there missile launchers in or near your home?

3. Anyone in your family fighting with Hezbollah?

4. Did you see missiles being launched?

5. Did you wonder if the Israelis might respond?

6. What kind of danger did you think you and your children might be in if missiles were launched from your village?

and finally

7. Did the Hezbollah build you any bomb shelters to protect you from return fire?

But why in the world would the 'beebs' want any of that information? Answers to those questions would not support their twisted 'world view', and since their unquestioned superior international professional reputation gives them a pass, they no longer need to report "news" - just their corporate "opinion". So egads! Mr. Keane would have no interest whatsoever in anything along that line.

IMHO they - and the rest of the uncritical MSM - are rushing lemming-like full tilt over the cliffs of "reality", into the bay of irrelevence, and in but a brief time will be swept into the sea of extinction.

Sorry, rant over.

Whether or not locals would choose to answer any of those questions, surely one point to be made is that most villages have no means of transporting their population elsewhere, even if they wish to leave. The people are vehicle-poor, I would imagine.

alix,

If your children were at risk in a war zone would you just pass if off with a c'est la vie or would you use your feet? At a minimum wouldn't you move as far away from a firing position as you could?

If Naziforallah is so concerned about civilian casualties then he should publicly announce that his boys will be firing rockets from beside the civilian occupied brown house at 123 street at 11:45.

I'm sure the whole of Southern Lebanon isn't built up, so in order to protect it's own civilians why don't Hezbollah fire their rockets from non-populated areas? Or is it that the horrific pictures of dead kids are worth more in propaganda to hezbollah than the actual lives that are being taken?

Those questions would be on par with what the American soldiers met when the crossed the Rhine.

Nobody new a nazi. Was a nazi. Or even heard there had been problems with the Jews.

The BBC is in bed with the enemy. Just like the entire ink spritzers and camermen. They're owned by a very small group of elites with their own agenda. Smells pretty much like sidling up to hitler. Won't be any medals ahead for the useful idiots who ply their trades in these waters, though. Be funny, when in the future, grandchildren ask grandparents, "what did you do during this war?" I guess they'll answer they worked in the sex trade?
