  1. Well I watched that video, and they're saying that maybe Israel's purpose by bombing these bridges is to close the roads on the weapons supply, well that's funny. What I don't understand is that there is another road, there are always others roads, what is Israel doing, this is silly !!!! They're just doing this to hurt Lebanon, they keep hiding behind their lame excuse of cutting the weapons supply.
    When will all this crap be over, they're not leaving anything from the Lebanese infrustructure! What bridge is next?
