So much for the neocon’™s ‘œculture of life’ schtick:

QANA, Lebanon – Israeli missiles hit several buildings in a southern Lebanon village as people slept Sunday, killing at least 56, most of them children, in the deadliest attack in 19 days of fighting.

‘¦The Lebanese Red Cross said the airstrike in Qana, in which at least 34 children were killed, pushed the overall Lebanese death toll to more than 500. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice postponed a visit to Lebanon in a setback for diplomatic efforts to end hostilities.

Postponed? Hardly. Rice was ‘œdisinvited‘. She (and the Bush administration in general) is now persona non grata in Beruit.

I was begining to think that perhaps this conflict was starting to wind down under its own weight, and that a cease-fire might be imminent. It’™s kind of hard to envision that happening after this event. The stakes have been raised.
