07-22) 04:00 PDT Washington -- The Bush administration is rushing a delivery of precision-guided bombs to Israel, which requested the expedited shipment last week after beginning its air campaign against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, U.S. officials said Friday.

The decision to quickly ship the weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign.

  1. About a week ago I saw pictures of children signing the bombs, it made me feel hollow.
    Just the fact that a government would allow such an action would indicate to me that they have no problem emptying sense out of the heads of future generations and filling them up with vengeance.
    This is no way to sustain a peaceful society, let alone improve the world.
    It's perpetual madness.
