Here's an odd thing. Reports are that from 700 to 1500 missiles have been fired into Israel in the last week. But most images coming out of the war zone show damage in Lebanon. Coverage of the people seems to be about even though. I see lots of Lebanese children, and lots of Israeli soldiers. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Israel had done more damage than Hezbollah, but I can't believe Hezbollah has done none. Why does the camera always run out of film when there is an Israeli child crying and hurt after an attack? Or could it be that those 700-1500 rockets just haven't come down yet?
Ah, found it. I knew there had to be some coverage of Israeli hardship among all the depictions of doe-eyed Lebanese children. I wonder if American support for Israel is the reason coverage is so one-sided. George Bush supports them? Ack! War crimes! Get pictures of the victims.
