Terrorists drink milk!

Amid the two billion dollars of damage done in Lebanon, Israel has destroyed warehouses of medical supplies and at least part of Beirut's dairies.

When the American media goes into the sophistication of the rockets being fired by Hezbollah into Israel, I have to wonder how and from where Iran --if they are in deed the sole manufacturer of them-- get their materials.

I don't bet, as a rule. I wouldn't be a bit surprised, however, if in following the trail of where the bits and pieces come from that make such weapons possible, one ends up in Great Britain, France, Russia or even the United States.

But going after the source of the rockets appears to be too time consuming when you can bomb willy-nilly a country with no defenses to speak of right next door.

Come to think of it, those weapons Israel maufactures have a nasty habit of ending up in the world's hotspots, too -- including on the streets of American cities.

I'm not excusing any acts of terrorism here whatsoever, but as Malcolm X once famously said, perhaps this is a case of the chickens coming home to roost.

In the meantime, better snatch that glass of milk out of your child's hand. You wouldn't want them to grow up to be a terrorist, now, would you?
