MASSACRE BY BOMBS AT QANA- WAR CRIMES

The Israelis say it was an accident. They say Hezbollah was firing rockets from the shelter's position. They say they warned civilians to evacuate (so blame the victims; it's their own fault they were killed??) Did it not occur to them that some civilians had no means nor money to evacuate? That their war ships had bombed roads and bridges so that evacuees had to take a circuitous route through back ways in order to flee, which added many hours and hardships to their flight? And that their planes bombed and fired rockets upon convoys of fleeing civilians, in spite of them flying white flags?( ANOTHER POST ON THIS!!)

Qana Massacre #2 by Israel (they committed the same atrocity ten years earlier. )

******************************************************************************

The Israelis were not alone in committing this type of atrocity. To our shame, our military did the same thing in Iraq when it bombed the Amiriga Shelter. It was built of steel reinforced, thick concrete as a bomb shelter in which mostly women and children took refuge from the bombing. The U.S. was aware of it and its coordinates. Yet it alone was targeted and the much vaunted pin point accuracy of their bombing proved true. The first bomb blasted a hole in the roof; the second precisely entered the hole and massacred the Iraqis sheltered there.

The U.S. said it was a "mistake".
