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

Israel: "When you sleep with a missile sometimes you don't wake up ..."

From Israeli statement to U.N. Security Council meeting convened on Sunday after an Israeli air strike on the Lebanese village of Qana killed more than 60 people, most of them children.


While our enemies -- who have only today launched over a hundred missiles at Israeli towns and villages -- specifically target Israeli women and children in order to kill them, we defend ourselves in this brutal war and sometimes, tragically, as happened today, women and children do get hurt because they are used as a human shield by the Hizbollah. The Hizbollah has homes in Lebanon which house a missile in which the family sleep with a missile. When you sleep with a missile, sometimes you don't wake up in the morning." Link
