Oops, where did that rocket go?

I realize that Israelis usually aim better than Hezbollah, but it still seems a bit unfair that when Israelis miss their target by 50 meters is causes an international outcry, whereas Hezbollah gets to fire their rockets into a wrong fucking sort-of-country with nary a peep from anyone.

(Yeah, I know that as an American I should probably be quiet about hitting the wrong country, remembering the occasional bombs that we dropped on Italy and Bulgaria during the war in Serbia, but it's still sort of funny in a morbid way.)

A few of Hezbollah's rockets landed in the West Bank near Jenin. "Even if it were to fall on our heads, it wouldn't have spoiled our joy. All of us here are praying for Hezbollah's success and victory," said a local Fatah activist. Wow. Talk about putting real friendship into the friendly fire. Hey, if the rocket falls on this particular guy's head I might even wholeheartedly share the joy.

Well, maybe I should not complain about the international community. If these clowns don't mind rockets falling on their heads, why should anyone else? Hezbollah, OTOH, should be more careful. With such good targeting they will eventually hit Damascus, and then say goodbye to half of their funding.
