2006 Israel-Lebanon Conflict

It’s rare that I find myself saying this, but the photo above is just beautiful, even if it shows the horrible side of humanity through war and battle. I know tanks and guns are hardly natural things, but I find it fascinating that a picture like the one above is powerful enough to stop me in my everyday browsing habits and just cause me to pause and think about what the world around me is coming to. I hope this conflict can be resolved soon.

Iranian Hizbollah’s spokesman Mojtaba Bigdeli:

“We are only waiting for the Supreme Leader’s green light to take action. If America wants to ignite World War Three … we welcome it.”

Familiarize yourself with the basics of the 2006 Israel-Lebanon Conflict on Wikipedia (but by all means, do not let Wikipedia be your only source of information–especially on current events).

By the way, I just registered for an account through AP so I can obtain photos, etc. They are supposed to contact me either through email or by phone. I feel like I should have access to these photos, but I also feel like my reason and purpose is too stupid for such a large organization like AP to grant me permission to use hi-res photos on Doobybrain.com. I’ll cross my fingers.
