Something to be admired?

July 25, 2006

Yesterday the Israeli news media was abuzz with a leak from an Israel Defense Force officer who claimed that the IDF Chief of Staff ordered the military to destroy 10 buildings in Dahiyah (a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut) for every rocket that lands in Haifa. The IDF PR machine scrambled and claimed that the officer was misquoted and that no such standing orders exists.

However, seeing the plumes of smoking rising from Beirut on CNN this morning, the math seems about right.
