Deadeye 

So, it's come to this - Israeli aircraft "deliberately" targeting United Nations locations. The UN facility which came under fire - and in which four peacekeepers were killed - was clearly marked on a publicly available map. Furthermore, a senior officer from the Irish military had contacted IDF command at least six times to tell them that the shelling was getting too close. Still, Israel expresses "deep regret" for the bombardment, and insists it was an error. That would be more believeable perhaps, if the Israelis had not already demonstrated what good shots they are:

Note to Dick "Dick" Cheney - now that's some fancy shootin'!
