With elections coming up in the US, the blood of Lebanese children means nothing when votes are at stake.

Keen to make the most of the Israeli Lobby's overwhelming influence over US politics some so called politicians are banking on votes over the blood of children. Tom Lantos, the ranking Democrat on the U.S. House of Representatives' International Relations Committee spoke in Israel of blocking the US aid package to Lebanon until UN troops are deployed. Playing to the home crowd as politicians always do.

Why would he do such a thing? Who will benefit from this move? Only Tom Lantos, the political cronies the he follows and those that follow him.

Why block the aid? It's going to the government that the US once called a model of democracy (but then of course let their real ally bomb them for 34 days), the government that the US tells Israeli not no undermine (while they destory the entire infrasrtucture of the country), the government that the US pledges (so falsely) to support in the recovery from the war.

Lebanese children mean nothing when holes need to be punched on a slip of paper (voting slip) to keep politicians in power. Lebanese children face the same fate now as Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan children; empty promises of support and fierce reprisals when the diplomacy of US / Israeli lies unravels once again.

rememberwe are run by people who think war is the way to make peace, how stupid is that!

they don't seem to realise that when you threaten people with force that some day they will fight back.

now we are paying the price for that in the US.

they are not fighting back in the US but look at how much we have lost here, freedoms, liberty, law... it's endless
