AdelaideNow... These are the pictures that damn Hezbollah: "Graphic images smuggled out from Lebanon show how Hezbollah is waging war amid suburban homes.

A stream of images, obtained exclusively by the News Ltd, depicts how the extremists are using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy calibre weapons.

Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly melt back into suburbia, the fighters carrying automatic assault rifles ride in on trucks laden with cannons.

The photographs from the Christian area of Wadi Chahrour in the east of Beirut were snapped by a visiting journalist caught in the midst of the war, then smuggled out by a friend. "

These photos readily explain why so many innocent people have died in Lebanon. Unfortunately, only a relatively small handful of the general public may ever see them.

"Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly melt back into suburbia..."

right after consulting their Mao's little book,on "fish and water",they'll hurl the idea back at you that these guys "can't afford uniforms".

i read some comments last night about how Hezbollah(along with IRG leadership and advisors) is little more than Iran's Shock Troops against Israel...
...the mullahs sit untouched in Teheran,while these poor schlubs
get chewed up and then run off
and draw fire into their own residential neighborhoods,the better to conduct "a damaging PR campaign".

Israeli airstrike;slideshow image of the coffin of a Shia child just-born,and un-named, being interred.

i'm shaking my head sadly and thinking "Ahmedinejad" would fit.

These look like the standard posed pictures that we used to get from Iraq.Nobody would be standing around on that Russian ZU23 anti-aircraft gun if it were ready for action.

PR needs to change tactics on this one immediately to make the Arab's perfect weapon ineffective.

PR=White Guilt. Until we overcome the latter, the PR will always be the same.
