The U.S.: killing Lebanese, creating enemies - it's deja vu all over again

As it did in last summer's Israeli assault on Lebanon, the U.S. is rushing weapons to the Middle East, this time to the Lebanese Army, to ensure the continued slaughter of Palestinians in the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp. In the face of a barrage of "dumb" weapons (artillery and the like) on the camp, the Washingon Post has the nerve to make the preposterous assertion that "Estimates of the civilian deaths range from one to more than 10." Oh right. Hey Washington Post, here's an estimate that says 24 civilians are dead. My money's on an order of magnitude more, should the truth ever be told.

And, aside from being "linked" to al Qaeda, what is the horrible terrorist crime committed by these "Islamic militants"? They robbed a bank, a fact you'll be hard-pressed to find in the corporate media.

Plenty of reason for the U.S. to be rushing weapons to the scene, though. Blowback? Count on this being the very definition of the word, months or years hence.
