These pictures were taken in the destroyed S. Suburbs of Beirut by the president of the American university of Beirut. They were posted on the Angry Arab blog, the blog of UC Davis professor As'ad Abu Khalil.

First One


Second One (alluding to "The birth pangs of the new middle east" comment made my Condelezza Rice when she was talking about the destruction of Lebanon)

I've been to that site before but I don't remember seeing those particular pictures. Thanks for the link, the ones in the OP are saying access denied. Maybe you have to be a member on the blog site to see them?

Anyway, what can one really say to that kind of destruction? It's mind boggling to someone like me that lives such a safe sheltered life here that people make a decision to blow up other peoples homes, cities and lives. The amount of disconnect from humanity to be able to that is scary.
