This Is Funny And Pathetic

In order to justify the killing of civilians, war supporters are desperate to prove that Hezbollah uses residential areas to launch attacks. Any co-relation effectively absolves Israel from any responsibility. Hardly surprising to find this pathetic "evidence" on Instapundit:
THIS is the picture that damns Hezbollah. It is one of several, smuggled from behind Lebanon's battle lines, showing that Hezbollah is waging war amid suburbia.

The images, obtained exclusively by the Sunday Herald Sun, show Hezbollah using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy-calibre weapons.

Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, the militants carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon.

The photographs, from the Christian area of Wadi Chahrour in the east of Beirut, were taken by a visiting journalist and smuggled out by a friend.

Here is the avalanche of evidence:

Three pictures, two of which are basically the same shot and the other, some guy with a gun. Whoa!- I'm convinced now. I don't see any rockets, although I do see an anti-aircraft gun, which is more a testament that Israel is flying sorties over cities, than it is evidence of urban fighters. If this is the best the apologists can do, this is sad indeed. Shame on Instapundit for the title "Photos That Damn Hezbollah", it should read "Photos That Insult Your Intelligence". Try again. Photoshop?
