"Proud Grandpa," Olmert is not justifying the killing of children. If that is your take, your cognitive comprehension skills are quite poor. Rather, Olmert did, for the most part, the right thing. The killing of innocents is always a tragedy--and he said that. However, both the motive and cause need to be considered. Israel (and Olmert) did not intend to kill innocents. Hezbollah, on the other hand, did and does. The empirical evidence (the aerial videos) in this case is quite compelling. It shows that a building in the immediate vicinity of the building was used to harbor a rocket launcher. Hezbollah is thus to blame for hidding such weapons in a civilian area. (Where is your condemnation of their actions?) Finally, why is that nearly all the victims were "women and children both very young and very old?" Where were the men? Could it be that they are Hezbollah who bring their "work home with them?"
