    I am wondering where the evidence is of tunnels in the south of Lebanon because when the Israeli army bombs there are craters but no tunnels. This is the same story the US, UK and Australia told about Iraq and it was simply a lie. Where is the evidence that the Hezbollah are endangering their own families by hiding the weapons in their homes. Again we were told the Iraqis did that and it was simply untrue with the result now of a civil war, 200 people dead or hurt every day, over 100,000 civilians in total. We were told similar stories about Afghanistan - that was not true either. Why is it that the US and UK and Israel are so bereft of truths they cannot help but use lies? How does the capture of 2 men trained to do nothing more than kill other people justify murdering UN observers, bombing ambulances trying to help, attacking media convoys, fuel depots, refugees fleeing and the bombing of Qana?
