    I can hardly believe the IDF would deliberately target the UN installation.

    Still not exactly the kind of thing you can say "Whoops... s-o-r-r-y bout that..."

    They screwed up bad. I wonder what their excuse is going to be this time.....

    P.S. This act is very similar to what a terrorist would do.

    bad, bad error. will have consequences.

    but, chuck, you are an insult to the shoe. terrorists intend to blow up things -- including themselves.

    Yes, that's true, but blowing things up that intend to bring peace to an area is not a terrorist act?

    No. But blowing things up to eradicate an entire nation off the face of the earth (which is Hezbollah's goal toward Israel) is terrorist act.

    Oh, I agree. Hezbollah is a terroist group(don't get me wrong with that situation). Then what do you call what Israel just did? A "mistake"? A "sorry, we didn't mean it" situation?

    Well, it could be a mistake. Or it could be a rogue soldier, rogue commander, etc.

    What is troubling me is that even though just about every news report is reporting that Israel bombed the post, buried in some of the stories, Israel's ambassador to the U.S. is saying that it is unclear what happened yet. Here is the quote from the CNN story:

    Yet the headline is: "U.N.: Israeli airstrike hits U.N. observer post

    So I am wondering did the Kofi Annan jump in without facts and condemn the Israeli's without the facts causing big headlines, or are the Israeli's full of shit when they throw out the possibility that they didn't do it?

    I'd say both options are equally plausible.
