Arrest That Man!

I found this clip on YouTube the other day ... and the commentary in which it was featured, today ... the title says it all ...

Below is a cell-phone video clip of a member of Amal ... launching a rocket propelled grenade ... on the occasion of a broadcast by the head of Amal, Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri."

    Josey on the Army's reaction to the shooting...

    Report on Amal's other leisurely activities

    "Holy Crap" is right. I have to wonder where that rocket landed/exploded. Which direction did this asshat shoot in?

    And don't even get me started as to why our hapless army can't arrest this man, but our army commander is quick to inform us that the army "will defend Lebanon and Syria from any Israeli aggression".

    More like "divine" crap if you ask me.

    Shiite death squads are free and rooming the streets of Lebanon to kill, terrorize, rape your women, destroy your homes, cleanse all non-shiites from large areas while you talk as if this was just another story...

    If you don't dig in and arm yourself you will be skinned alive and that's the sorry fact...

  5. The speech of Berri wasn't finished until it was dark. The RPG in the clip, however, was fired when it was light. Assuming they would fire the RPG after Berri was done talking (when most of the firing could be heard and seen).

    So, different speech? Different occasion?

  6. I second riemer brouwer comment

    some pb in the time of the movie.

    We should be more attentives to the propaganda, however theses practices exist right now and have existed in the past and exist for everyone (hariri as well)

  7. Riemer, Frenchy:

    Yeah I had the same thought, which is why I held off on putting the video clip up after I found it.

    A few days later I found the Times Blog post with the claim and I posted it... irrespective of which speech the rocket-fire came after, my take on it has been that that man should be arrested!

    Something neither one of us would dispute...

    ...I hope!!!
