What Hezbollah Does

If you don't believe that Hezbollah really does use civilians as shields, visit The Herald Sun.
The images, obtained exclusively by the Sunday Herald Sun, show Hezbollah using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy-calibre weapons.
Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, the militants carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon...
The images include one of a group of men and youths preparing to fire an anti-aircraft gun metres from an apartment block with sheets hanging out on a balcony to dry.
Others show a militant with AK47 rifle guarding no-go zones after Israeli blitzes.
Another depicts the remnants of a Hezbollah Katyusha rocket in the middle of a residential block blown up in an Israeli air attack...
"Hezbollah came in to launch their rockets, then within minutes the area was blasted by Israeli jets," he said.
"Until the Hezbollah fighters arrived, it had not been touched by the Israelis. Then it was totally devastated...
The release of the images comes as Hezbollah faces criticism for allegedly using innocent civilians as "human shields".

And if the gringos gathered around that AA gun were all smeared in an airstrike, how many would be considered civilians deaths?

You got it. All of 'em.

Hence the reason I do not believe the numbers thrown around as "civilian deaths" in Lebanon.
