The meaning of "life".

I know that things are often more complex than they appear and I know that as much as the Bush administration wants the end of the Hezbollah, they probably don't want too many Lebanese civilians to die, but in the end,
Isn't there some a bit wicked in the fact that the US is sending aid to Lebanon while sending more weapons to Isreal?

The argument that precision-guided bombs will help "save" some innocent people does not stand. We all know what "precision" means probably as well as we know what "collateral damage" means.
Call me a cynic, but I can't help wondering about the sanity of a country whose president claims to "protect life" and that "human life is a sacred gift from our Creator" but has more respect for the non-born than for the living!
If only it could just be about dropping leaflets!

Post Scriptum: the EU decided not to follow Bush's decision on stem-cell research and continue EU funding for human embryonic stem-cell research.
