Missle map

This is a swell animated map of the situation in Northern Israel, but the naughty contrarian in me is wondering what the Southern Lebanon version might look like. For every Israeli town under assault, there's at least one in Lebanon, too.

Hezbollah must be destroyed, but innocent civillians on both sides are going to suffer terribly before this campaign is finished. I don't know that Israel can avoid doing damage to innocent bystanders in Southern Lebanon, and now, perhaps, isn't the time to argue the morality of an assault that makes no distinction between civillians and terrorists. But let's not pooh-pooh their tears, either.
