More munitions for Lebanon...

A Lebanese girl and her family sit inside a bus as they flee the southern suburbs of Beirut. Israel has asked the Bush administration to speed delivery of short-range antipersonnel rockets armed with cluster munitions, which it could use to strike Hezbollah missile sites in Lebanon.

The Bush Administration has shown a greater sense of urgency in getting bombs and other weaphons to Israel than it did in getting relief to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. I guess it shows the "war on terror" is the top priority.
