    Those missiles are packed with steel pellets and can really hurt, not like those soft bales of cotton that Israel are dropping to gently smother unfortunate Lebanese civilians. Frankly, this is sickening hypocrisy. Like most other people I deplore the use of rockets randomly fired at Israeli towns. But I'm under no illusions about the 'precision guided' but indiscriminate killing of Lebanese civilians, with a range of weaponry that far exceeds steel pellets. Cluster bombs. Phosphorus munitions. Depleted uranium munitions. Don't start trading atrocities and don't try to put the blame for the deaths on anyone's head but Israels. Some honesty might be the first step in recovering from this mess.
