Speechless and saddened.

500,000 Lebanese citizens are now homeless.
That's out of a population of 3.8 million, according to Juan Cole. People in Southern Lebanon have received leaflets warning them to leave, but are trapped in their villages under Israeli bombings. The IDF has opened a 60-km front on the border, using tanks to probe Hezbollah. Meanwhile, a ceasefire remains... elusive.
I normally take the position that both sides are excessively violent, but this is a pretty sad picture of what's going on in Lebanon.
