They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Blair: Stop the killing - later

BBC News

Tony Blair has said a plan is being drawn up to secure an "immediate cessation of hostilities" in Lebanon.

But the prime minister said it will take a few days to finalise because both sides had to make concessions.

"It will not stop on both sides unless there is a plan to make it stop and that's what we are working on urgently, as we speak," said Mr Blair.

He said what was happening in Lebanon was a "catastrophe" but innocent Israeli civilians had been killed too.

"I don't want the killing to go on. I want the killing to stop now."

... "And then I believe we will need some form of international force in the South, in Lebanon, which we must build up over time to make sure that that can then act [sic] as a buffer between those people on the Lebanese side who want to cause difficulty, and Israel" [db: who only seek peace...and land that belongs to others]."

db: BBC [World Service radio] reported that our despicable neocon PM said "We are putting in place a plan, as I said last week, to create an immediate cessation of hostilities". 100 parents of dead Lebanese children would say "too little, too late". This is a plan to give Israel as much time as possible to 'take out' Hezbollah - and with it infrastructure and civilians.
