The fragile cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon could lead to another military campaign in preparation: one want to lead the United States against Iran if it rejects UN ultimatum on stopping its nuclear program, set to 31 August.
Israel had devised a plan to attack Hezbollah and shared it with officials of the Bush administration long before the 12 kidnappings last July. "Drawing on sources close to the military and intelligence, Seymour Hersh, The New Yorker magazine presents the Israeli military campaign in Lebanon in a whole new light: the kidnapping of two IDF soldiers on the Israeli-Lebanese border by Hezbollah was just a pretext.
According to the American journalist, well before this event, Israeli officials visited the United States to ensure the support of the Bush administration. Washington - and first Vice President Dick Cheney - was convinced that "an air campaign against fortified underground complex of Hezbollah in Lebanon could meet Israel's security concerns and also serve as a prelude to a possible American preemptive attack to destroy Iran's nuclear installations, some of which are also buried deep. "
The article by Seymour Hersh, dated August 21 but released a week before the New Yorker site, caused a stir. Washington has clearly denounced the American journalist information, famous for revealing the scandals of Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad, and the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. "The White House" strongly denied "the truth of the article. His spokesman, Anthony Snow, said he was' full of fictitious elements' and 'attacked' by the use of Hersh ' anonymous sources'. However, the chief editor of the New Yorker article continues, "observes Ehsan Ahrari in Asia Times.
Hersh is not the only one who mentioned the idea of Israeli retaliation planned in advance with the Washington Agreement. In The Guardian, George Monbiot notes that the hypothesis of a "premeditated Israeli attack" is now confirmed. This columnist for the British left-wing daily supports its about. "The motivations of the Bush administration are easy to understand. The neoconservatives believe that by attacking Hezbollah Israel helps them confront Iran." He added, worried: "Bush is losing more and more with reality and it really seems to believe he is engaged in a final confrontation with the forces of evil, which should lead to a triumph of 'freedom and democracy 'as final as the second coming of the Messiah in both cases. - struggle of good against evil and coming of the Messiah - the result is the Apocalypse. " Still, those who lose this war is "the people of Lebanon and northern Israel, of course, but maybe one day we others."
Military experts and the Middle East have also highlighted the links between the conflicts between Israel and Hezbollah, and between Washington and Tehran. In an article entitled "Charting the Course for the United States in Iran", published by Asia Times, Gareth Porter cites the American Edward Luttwak, that "the aim of the Israeli campaign against Hezbollah was to change believes the Bush administration, which fears to attack Iran "for fear of reprisals its ally Hezbollah against Israel. Gareth Porter, "the visit from George W. Bush of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, 23 May, was clearly the main purpose of pushing the United States to agree to use force if necessary to stop the program Iran's uranium enrichment. "
For military expert Ehsan Ahrari, still in Asia Times, if the involvement of the Bush administration in the planning of Israeli retaliation "is true, then in the image of America as a military power, alongside the Israeli army was severely tarnished. the negative consequences of the perceived failure of Israel to destroy Hezbollah's military capabilities are not complete. the United States could fall more heavily because of this fiasco.

Traces of radioactivity in Lebanon
NOUVELOBS.COM | 28.10.06 | 18: 30
High levels of radioactivity have been detected in Israeli bomb craters. The IDF is suspected of having used uranium weapons.
The British daily newspaper The Independant revealed on Saturday 28 October that scientists have found high levels of radioactivity in samples of soil taken from Israeli bomb craters in Lebanon.
The samples come from two craters located in Khiam and At-Tiri (southern Lebanon), caused by Israeli bombs. This discovery could demonstrate that uranium weapons were used by the Israeli army.
The samples were sent for further analysis to the mass spectrograph at the Harwell laboratory in Oxfordshire in the south of England, the newspaper said.
Scientists have found a high rate of radiation and the British Ministry of Defense (MoD) has confirmed the presence in these samples of a high concentration of uranium isotopes, the newspaper added.
A photograph of the explosion of the first bomb showed a large cloud of black smoke that could result from the combustion of uranium, The Independent said again.

According to reports, Israel used incendiary weapons, including white phosphorous shells, in attacks against Lebanon. Protocol III on the prohibition or limitation of the use of incendiary weapons additional to the 1980 Convention on the prohibition or limitation of the use of certain conventional weapons (UN) prohibits the use of weapons of this type. type against civilians. Under this text, a military objective located at the heart of a concentration of civilians must in no case be targeted by means of incendiary weapons. According to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), it is not certain that the latter rule is part of customary law.
Israel is not a party to Protocol III on the prohibition or limitation of the use of incendiary weapons.
Israel is also said to have used vacuum bombs during the conflict. It is a thermobaric weapon, also called a vacuum bomb. This type of weapon spreads a cloud of volatile gas in the target area; a detonator transforms this aerosol into a fireball which absorbs oxygen from the atmosphere, which causes severe burns in people in the targeted area and neutralizes lung activity, with fatal consequences. Like all modern weapons of war, these bombs put civilians at risk and can be used in indiscriminate or other unlawful attacks. Their enormous destructive power is cause for concern, as their use could lead to indiscriminate killings.
An episode which illustrates the terrible effects of the use of these weapons on civilians took place in 1982, during the siege of Beirut by the Israeli army. The Israeli air force dropped a vacuum bomb on a building in which, according to certain information, Yasser Arafat, leader of the PLO, was hidden. About two hundred people were reportedly killed in the attack. Arafat, it seems, had left the building moments before the attack.

“The Bush administration has radically redefined the use of nuclear power: US nuclear weapons are no longer considered qualitatively different from conventional weapons. A large number of administration actions in recent years strongly suggest that an imminent use of nuclear US nuclear planning is underway, and this was confirmed by Bush's explicit refusal to rule out a nuclear attack on Iran. We have all been warned. The fact that North Korea is now a nuclear power does Nothing changes - Quite the contrary. ".... continued here: http://www.mondialisation.ca/index.php? ... cleId=3599

Uh tungsten shells were already used during the 2nd war as an anti tank weapon ...
Given the density of Tungsten, they could have taken gold, but no, the depleted uranium was and is surely less expensive.

...We also hear about tungsten weapons. We found bodies with unusual brown-black colored skin
It’s not quite that it’s very hard tungsten steel which pierces the armor (tortoiseshell) of the new tanks, this projectile is wrapped in a shell of softer material so as not to damage the scratches of the guns. all shots
when it strikes a turret even rounded the small projectile of a very hard material pierces the tortoiseshell and the shielding then it enters at high speed in the armored vehicle and starts to swirl inside making a masking of all the ocuppants.
The tortoiseshell that we see on some new tank has an articulation. When an explosive with hollow charge (old generation) strikes a shell the small discharge placed under the shell explodes and the shell repels the hollow charge which it does not fact that piercing the shell, the shielding remains intact, it would be necessary to shoot two hollow charges in the same place on the blinder to pierce it.
For tungsten shells, a part was tested and built in North America ... For military research the budget greatly exceeds that of cancer research.
