TCS Daily - Maybe Now We'll Get It: "Maybe, when this Lebanon thing is over, we'll finally get it:

Guerrillas like to hide behind civilians.

Muslim guerrillas take it a step further: 'Civilians' are a weapon to them -- as much a part of the fight as the AK-47 or RPG they carry.

Those who have visited any Hezbollah installation in Lebanon over the years always remark on the fact that there are always families, women and children, in and around the place. 'Secret' installations are usually hidden in plain site -- in houses or apartment buildings."

An interesting taped interview with the Lebanese head of Hezbollah in which he says he told the Lebanese govt that he would kidnap Israeli soldiers, and which he expresses surprise at the Israeli, Arab and world community reaction. Again, this underscores my thought that this was a poorly conceived action and a strategic mistake.

STY:

Ahh, but it depends on which civilians they hide among. Are they Officially Oppressed Civilians (tm) or not?

Skookumchuk,
We must stress that all these were highly trained professional civilians,no ordinary civilians were harmed in these stunts,
Do not try this at home.
