Pictures: Nahr el Bared Evacuation

Fighting in Nahr el Bared resumed today, one day after the Lebanese Army evacuated the families of the militants it has been fighting for just over three months. The evacuees included 26 women and 33 children who were examined by the Red Cross and transported in a special military convoy.

Below are pictures from Friday's evacuation:

    Very good on the army for showing it is good and compassionate.

  2. True, such a display of compassion honours the army. But far too many kids like those will grow to be terrorists, and to show far less compassion.

    We need to start thinking long-term as to what kind of country we want, or we'll soon be reacting to the descendants of those nasties. And they only have to succeed once.
