Hezbollah Guilty of War Crimes; No Shit!

Amnesty International has taken time out from attacking the United States and Israel to finally point out that the terrorist-group Hezbollah has committed war crimes. LONDON (Reuters) - Lebanese guerrilla group Hizbollah committed war crimes in its conflict with Israel by targeting civilians with rockets packed with metal ball bearings, rights group Amnesty International said on Thursday.

Yes sir, Amnesty’s secretary-general came to the difficult conclusion that purposely targeting innocent civilians to murder “makes it all too clear” they violated the laws of war.

"The scale of Hizbollah's attacks on Israeli cities, towns and villages, the indiscriminate nature of the weapons used and statements from the leadership confirming their intent to target civilians make it all too clear that Hizbollah violated the laws of war," Amnesty's Secretary-General Irene Khan said.

Ah, but she can’t just leave it at that now can she. It took so much effort to bring herself to condemn her beloved freedom fighters that she could not help but to needlessly bring Israel into the picture.

"The fact that Israel has also committed serious violations in no way justifies violations by Hizbollah," she said in a statement. Wow. You mean using human shields, launching attacks from condensed civilian neighborhoods (the reason why so many Lebanese civilians died) and indiscriminately attacking Israeli towns is not justified by Israel defending itself from the initiating aggression. Thanks for pointing out that terrorists are not fond of life or the rule of law… I didn’t know. (Notice the inherent bias in her statement. the insinuation that Israel started this and that it's their fault Hezbollah uses human shields)

And then there is the timing of this report. During the entire conflict, Israel was being attacked by Amnesty and other so called human rights groups but it took a month after the war was over for them to report the obvious about Hezbollah. In fact, it took only days for A.I. to release a condemnatory statement directed at the Israelis.
