Where Have I Seen This Before?

August 8, 2006


A Hezbollah gunman aims his AK 47 at a fire caused by an explosion in Kfarshima, near Beirut, Lebanon, Monday, July 17, 2006. Lebanese TV stations broadcast video pictures Monday claiming to be an Israeli military aircraft falling to the ground in the area, but Israeli military said no aircraft was shot down over Beirut and there was no immediate confirmation of the cause of the explosion.

    ha ha ha………. TOO funny…. Now U.S. News & World Report is cringing…..
    “I’m gonna shoot me a tire, by Allah!” JIIIHAAAD !!

    Hey. Wait. a. minit.
    This could be for real. You know when you go camping and grab the flashlight to go out into the woods for a pee? You come back to stand by the fire and there you are – aiming the stupid flashlight into the fire. Everyone does it, so don’t pretend you never did it. This could be the same kind of dufus syndrome.

  5. DirtCrashr says:

    Nice to have an AK ,but at that distance he’s only ever gonna shoot tire-sized groups at best – it’s not an accurate rifle past 100-yds. At Clear Creek you’re supposed to roll the flaming tire down a big hill, shootin’ guns takes place in another area – but it could easily be anywhere in Northern California too.

  7. J. Summers says:

    I think there must have been some confusion. The editors of Reuters must have asked Hajj or one of his buddies for pictures of Tyre burning. The fauxtographers, not likely English native speakers, didn’t understand homophones and so they took pics of tires burning. ;->

    Bruno Stevens acknowledges (Libération) that it was indeed a tyre dump which was burning, his convoluted explations on how his “tragic” mistake happened is absolutely hilarious.

    “Pour revenir à l’image parue dans US News, magazine dont l’orientation éditoriale est notoirement pro-israélienne, ce que vous appelez un dépôt d’ordures est un parking de la caserne de l’armée libanaise à Kfar Chima, dans la banlieue est de Beyrouth, sur lequel se trouvaient des camions affrétés vraisemblablement par le Hezbollah, contenant au moins une rampe de lancement de missiles et plusieurs missiles. La mise à feu incontrôlée causée par le bombardement israélien a provoqué le décollage intempestif d’un fragment de missile suivi par sa chute et son explosion sur le stock de pneus et de camions désaffectés à l’arrière de la caserne. Les images de la télévision libanaise montraient un objet métallique de taille importante en feu, chutant de très haut à cet endroit précis. L’hypothèse d’un F16 israélien abattu, avancée au moment des faits, paraissait crédible ; mais après être retourné personnellement trois fois sur les lieux dans les jours et les semaines qui ont suivis (il fallait attendre la fin de l’incendie), je suis arrivé à la conclusion que l’explication la plus plausible est celle du missile endommagé retombant ; j’ai photographié à cet endroit une rampe de lancement de missiles accréditant cette hypothèse… où est la fabrication grossière que vous dénoncez ?
    Lorsque vous écrivez : «On n’a jamais vu les “combattants” du Hezbollah», le démenti est simple : sur cette image précise, par exemple !
    Je vous enjoins, M. Trigano, d’appeler France 2 et de leur demander de pouvoir visionner l’entièreté de la cassette filmée par leur cameraman Talal Jalouni, à Netzarim, lors de la mort de Mohammed al-Dura. Les quatorze minutes de cette vidéo sont absolument insoutenables ; je suis à votre disposition pour vous montrer les photos et des plans des lieux (détruits quelques jours plus tard par l’IDF…).”

  19. My life’s been pretty dull lately, but I guess it doesn’t bother me. I haven’t been up to anything recently. Maybe tomorrow. I’ve pretty much been doing nothing worth mentioning. I haven’t gotten much done these days. Pretty much nothing seems worth thinking about.
