    Let's examine the facts * The IDF coordinates tree trimming around a surveillance camera positioned on the inner fence of the blue line with the UNIFIL (United Nations Inept Force in Lebanon) * A squad of Israeli soldiers in a cherry picker attempt to trim tree * UN inept soldiers, standing amongst armed Lebanese soldiers on the Lebanese side start yelling incoherently at the Israelis despite the coordinated event. * The Lebanese soldiers, shielded by the UN, fire on the cherrypicker killing its operator *The Israelis respond with fire from their side (they never crossed the line, there is a buffer between the security fence and the blue line, the cherrypicker was based and mounted inside the inner fence) * All hell breaks loose *Arab Ali Babas like Assad, Hariri and Nasrallah condemn the "horrific" agression of the Israelis * Lebanese prime minister declares that they will defend Lebanon to the last man * Foreign media outlets interview only the Arab side and take anything they say as absolute fact and question nothing. * No inquiries are made whatsoever with the United Nothing as to why Lebanon fired if this was a coordinated event * Ban-k I Moon requests restraint from all parties. * Senior UNIFIL official: From what I know, Israel didn't cross border with Lebanon (Army Radio) *Nasrallah vows revenge on the deceitful, agressive enemy vowing to eradicate the Zionist plague *** And so it goes.................just another uneventful day in the Holyland
