Annals of Human Perversity (2) - There is No Such Thing as an Unintended Civilian Casuality

So, I wonder if this is what the Israelis sitting in their lawn chairs munching popcorn watching the bombardment of Gaza were hoping to see? And I wonder if the editors at The Times will draw the connection between the story accompanying this photo and this one which prompted the post to which I just linked.

I heard on the radio recently that Manhattan has a population density of roughly 65,000 per square mile while the comparable figure for Gaza is upwards of 400,000 per square mile. And of course, residents of Gaza essentially are locked in. You might call civilians there sitting ducks. But then you might seem as callous as the Israelis in their lawn chairs.
