Comment of the Day: War Sucks. Get Over It.


Responding to the YouTube clip of children burned, allegedly by Israeli Phosphorus Bombs, reader Mike writes:

I'm sorry that disturbing pictures make you guys squirm. But look, in World War 2, we bombed the hell out of civilians (who were far more innocent than many of the Lebanese). War sucks. But the Israelis are doing what they have to stop a major threat to their country and its safety. Unfortunately you guys flinch at any violence. But its either Lebanese casualties or Israeli ones, and the Israelis aren't ready to uselessly sacrifice themselves. Would you allow yourself to face constant missle strikes or would you fight back? And who said anyone can't respond with greater force than the aggresor? Thats how you win.
