Depleted Uranium Situation Worsens Requiring Immediate Action By President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, and Prime Minister Olmert :: from www.uruknet.info :: news from occupied Iraq (caution: graphic image)
Reading this article made my stomach turn. Not the best written piece, but the urgency of the situation comes through loud and clear. Now, with all major infrastructure destroyed and over 600 casualties, Lebanon needs to contend with nuclear waste falling from the sky, infecting their land, drinking water, food, and themselves.
Of course, even if one ignores the fact that what Israel is doing with regular munitions is breaking international law already, one still needs to ask why the need for bunker busters? While I’m sure there are bomb shelters in Lebanon (most likely left over from the last time Israel bombarded Lebanon), the Israeli Defence Force is doing such a good job razing everyone on top of the ground that I’m sure it will have no trouble locating and smoking out the rest of Hezbollah without the need for nuclear weapons.
The one saving grace: at least they’re having trouble with the delivery.
