ATTACKING A CIVILIAN POPULATION / IMAGES OF WAR

WARNING! THESE ARE IMAGES OF WAR! SOME ARE GRAPHIC! WAR ISN'T PRETTY.

This grandma and grandpa wait with bags and bundles of possessions. Where can they go? How can they go?
The young and fit can grab bags of possessions and flee, on foot if necessary. But where to?
ISRAELIS BOMBED THE AIRPORT AND DESTROYED THE RUNWAYS. NO ONE COULD EVACUATE BY AIR. ISRAELI SHIPS BLOCKADED THE ENTIRE LEBANESE COAST. NO ONE COULD EVACUATE BY SEA. THE ONLY OPTION FOR EVACUATION WAS BY CAR OR BY FOOT. THEN THE ISRAELIS BOMBED THE FREEWAYS AND ROADS SO THAT SOME WERE IMPASSABLE TO VEHICLES. THEY BOMBED CONVOYS OF CARS FULL OF REFUGEES. THEY BOMBED VILLAGES, TOWNS, CITIES. OVER HALF A MILLION FLED THEIR HOMES, CREATING A TERRIBLE PROBLEM FOR THEIR CARE. THE POOR HAD NO MEANS OF EVACUATION. SOME DEFIANTLY REMAINED IN THEIR COMMUNITIES. AS IS COMMON IN EVENTS OF THIS NATURE, SOME SIMPLY DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO GO.
The bombs rain down. The stunned survivors observe the damage and destruction.




They seek out their wounded and care for them.





And they seek out the horrors of their dead.



Even when the dead are blown apart, they carefully gather all the body parts.

Evacuating didn't help this group of refugees. A bomb slaughtered them, and probably the carload next to them. Israelis bombed the convoys of fleeing refugees on the roads.


In rage and grief, aid workers display a fellow citizen for the world to see what has been done to them.

Her mop of thick, dark hair hangs over the tiny face of this dead child.
Two burn victims, one still ablaze.

They bury their dead.




And they grieve...............................

And rage in their pain and sorrow. THIS IS WAR! THIS IS WAR! THIS IS WAR! THIS IS WAR! THIS IS WAR!
Comments:
When you were on my blog, you mentioned how horrible the pics are. I have to agree. They are horrible. But Do you tell both sides in here or is just all one side>? I noticed in your photos it was all against isreal and none against Hazbollah. I think both sides are wrong. I think we are wrong for getting involved in anything over there. Those people did nothing to us but some swallowed the lies our president told and now we are in a quagmire over there. Yes, the photos sicken me but they each tell a story that all those who support war should see.

In the chatroom I go go they banned a chatter for showing such pics. He was banned for a day for showing one pic of a dead child. We are allowed to discuss war but not show the true atrocies of what it does there. The pics should be posted in all political chat rooms.
