    In an interview with Mark Urban of the BBC Benny said "we will bomb Lebanon back 20 years" but he never said why. Lebanon were doing nothing, invading no-one - in fact Syria was still an occupying power. Seymour Hersh revealed last year that the US and Israel used Lebanon as a practice run to see if they could do the same in Iran. Here is a question - what if the IDF manages to slaughter all the Palestinians, or the egregious Leiberman drives them all out and Israel has all the land. OK? Picture that - and then ponder what the 300 million other arabs in the area might think about that because they sure aren't doing the US a single favour these days are they? And the US and Israel are voted over and over again by the rest of the world as being out of control and dangerous to world peace. With one difference - when US soldiers murder civilians or rape them they are investigated, tried and incarcerated. The IDF shoot children and gloat.
