Thought I would share a riveting thread on another website. It is a frequent flyer website that normally is a great source for maximizing mileage, maintaining status, etc. But a few days ago, two members started posting their personal accounts of the conflict, Dovster from Israel and BEYFlyer from Lebannon. The mods are doing their best to keep this thread nonpolitical - just a heart wrenching account from inside the bombing. It puts a personal face on something that seems very far away.

One wishes that the governments of these two nations could be as courageous, humane and civil as the two main posters.

My hopes in sharing this is to give the human aspect of what is happening, not start any political battles.
