Please understand the nature of my job here is to be impartial and to report violations from both sides without bias. As an Unarmed Military Observer, this is my raison d’etre.
What I can tell you is this: we have on a daily basis had numerous occasions where our position has come under direct or indirect fire from both artillery and aerial bombing. The closest artillery has landed within 2 meters of our position and the closest 1000 lb aerial bomb has landed 100 meters from our patrol base. This has not been deliberate targeting, but has rather been due to tactical necessity.
Translation: Those Hezbollah bastards are using us as human shields while they fight, and since we’re completely helpless to do anything about it, I forgive the Israelis in advance for when the inevitable happens.
Damn. I wish I had balls like that. Maj Hess-von Kruedener, we salute you.
