Israeli colonel proudly admits war crime

From Jim:  This was in Y-Net today, about the four Israeli soldiers "on the border" (i.e., in Lebanon). The Israeli colonel admits a war crime. Nothing new there, but still interesting.

"Colonel (res.) Yaakov Zigdon, who served as chief artillery officer during Operation Accountability, said "Hezbollah will determine when the next war erupts. We fired 23,100 shells a week during Operation Accountability. They made the difference and gave the north two years of calm. We decided to damage villages after the residents left for Beirut due to our warnings, and they returned to destroyed homes.
