Here Is Something You Can't Understand....

It's gonna be a long time before I finish
One of the many missions that
I had to establish
To light my spliff
Ignite you with

So if you ain't down?
--Cypress Hill

You should probably never feel "good" about people being killed, but sometimes you might just feel a little righteous anger:
“One woman, who would not give her name because she had a government job and feared retribution, said Hezbollah fighters had killed a man who was trying to leave Bint Jbail. ‘This is what's happening"

“‘Hezbollah came to Ain Ebel to shoot its rockets,’ said Fayad Hanna Amar, a young Christian man, referring to his village. ‘They are shooting from between our houses.’ ‘Please,’ he added, ‘write that in your newspaper.’ Amar said Hezbollah fighters in groups of two and three had come into Ain Ebel, less than a mile from Bint Jbail, where most of the fighting has occurred. They were using it as a base to shoot rockets, he said, and the Israelis fired back.” (New York Times, July 28, 2006.) “Hezbollah came in to launch their rockets, then within minutes the area was blasted by Israeli jets. Until the Hezbollah fighters arrived, it had not been touched by the Israelis. After the attacks, Hezbollah didn't even allow the ambulances or the Lebanese Army to come in until they had cleaned the area, removing their rockets and hiding other evidence. The people there were horrified and disgusted at what Hezbollah were doing.”

I feel badly for innocent civilians who are caught in the middle of this war, but I will not shed any tears for Hezbollah's fighters. They are the closest thing to fascists that the modern world has seen in a long time.

Anyways, to speak truth to power, B Real, Sen Dogg and Zach De La Rocha offer this video about the benefits and pitfalls of killing the wicked.

Rock on with your bad selves.
