The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Hizbollah. They get the award for using civillians in Lebanon as human shields in order to get propaganda victories. The latest example is the bombing of Quna that led to many children dying.
If you don't believe Hizbollah is at fault, read and view this. They proudly put their guns in neighborhoods. Its a direct violation of the Geneva Convention, but next to no one in the press is willing to call it that. Instead they give Hizbollah the victory they want by inaction. Hizbollah is a dastardly coward for they hide behind children to do their fighting. Moral equivalence is bullshit, do you ever see any non-terrorist group use these tactics.
For sacrificing the lifes of others rather than themselves, Hizbollah is today's knucklehead of the day.

QANA, Lebanon (Reuters) - An Israeli air strike killed 54 Lebanese civilians, including 37 children, on Sunday, prompting Lebanon to tell U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice she was unwelcome in Beirut before a ceasefire.
The raid on the southern village of Qana was the bloodiest single attack during Israel's 19-day-old war on Hizbollah.
As a wave of anger spread across Lebanon and the Arab world, several thousand protesters chanted "Death to Israel, Death to America" outside the United Nations headquarters in downtown Beirut and some smashed their way into the building.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said he would not hold negotiations before a ceasefire, scuppering Rice's visit.
Rice, who was in Israel and had planned to go to Beirut later in the day, said she was saddened by the Qana air raid, but stopped well short of calling for an immediate ceasefire.
Police, who gave the death toll, said the Israelis had bombed Qana at 1:30 a.m. (2230 GMT on Saturday), destroying a three-storey building where about 63 displaced people were sheltering in the basement. Many were killed in their sleep.
