Idiot Wind

I listened to an hour of NPR Morning Edition this morning of the US backed-Israeli war against civililians in the Middle East and was struck by how void of intelligent content the reports are. That is the best one can say for their coverage. There is nothing on the criminal, unjustifiable assault by the US backed-Israeli military on civilian cities, roads, bridges, airports, etc. except a few weak echoes of Israel's claim to be trying to attack Hezbollah and free its soldiers. Please contact NPR and DEMAND coverage of the international laws that are being violated, reports of exactly what is being hit with civilian casualties, numbers of missles fired and bombing sorties, interviews with citizens/professors/activists/journalists who are citizens of Lebanon and the Occupied Territories. For yourself, I'd recommend listening to Democracy Now, reading Juan Cole, looking at Electronic Intifada and its coverage of Lebanon, Haaretz, the Guardian, Al-Jazeera, etc. Sigh...heartbreaking frankly....
