US evacuating its citizens from Lebanon so it's ally won't kill them

Chris Floyd :
"Well, here's something you don't see everyday: a nation evacuating its citizens so they won't be killed by their close and faithful ally.

Is this not a tacit admission that Israel is carrying out indiscrminate attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure – i.e., committing state terrorism? If they are 'carefully targeting military objectives only,' then why are American citizens in danger? The subtext of this story – which will never, ever be stated anywhere in the mainstream American media – is clear: American citizens in Lebanon are at dire risk of being killed by Israeli bombs, despite the fact that few if any of these citizens have even the slightest connection to Hezbollah, because the IDF is methodically laying waste to the whole country regardless of how many civilians they kill, or where they might come from.

This is what the Bush Administration is saying – through deeds, not words – with this evacuation. It is a remarkable admission. Yet at the same time, the Bushists are sending $210 million worth of vital jet fuel supplies to Israel to help run the IDF war machine (which is already well-stoked by American largess) as it wages mass slaughter and threatens the lives of up to 25,000 Americans. Obviously, Bush doesn't really care how many civilians the Israelis kill, or where they might come from, either."
