Returning to the well of regret

Apparently, if you're the prime minister of Israel, you can issue essentially the same apology for killing women and children in Qana...

"I would like to express my deep sorrow at the death of innocent civilians," the sources quoted Mr Olmert as telling Cabinet ministers at their weekly meeting. you used when you blew UN observers all to hell...

“The prime minister expressed Israel’s deep regret over the mistaken killing of four U.N. peacekeepers,” Olmert said in a statement released by his office.

...without having to actually change your behavior:

Israel continued to attack targets in Lebanon even after agreeing to a 48-hour halt to its broad bombing campaign in the face of an outcry over the air raid on Sunday that left dozens of Lebanese civilians dead.

The well of regret runs deep indeed.
