Robert Fisk: Mystery of Israel's secret uranium bomb

Published: 28 October 2006

Read the full report in the link.

Did Israel use a secret new uranium-based weapon in southern Lebanon this summer in the 34-day
assault that cost more than 1,300 Lebanese lives, most of them civilians?

We know that the Israelis used American "bunker-buster" bombs on Hizbollah's Beirut headquarters.
We know that they drenched southern Lebanon with cluster bombs in the last 72 hours of the war,
leaving tens of thousands of bomblets which are still killing Lebanese civilians every week. And we
now know - after it first categorically denied using such munitions - that the Israeli army also used
phosphorous bombs, weapons which are supposed to be restricted under the third protocol of the
Geneva Conventions, which neither Israel nor the United States have signed.

But scientific evidence gathered from at least two bomb craters in Khiam and At-Tiri, the scene of
fierce fighting between Hizbollah guerrillas and Israeli troops last July and August, suggests that
uranium-based munitions may now also be included in Israel's weapons inventory - and were
used against targets in Lebanon. According to Dr Chris Busby, the British Scientific Secretary of
the European Committee on Radiation Risk, two soil samples thrown up by Israeli heavy or
guided bombs showed "elevated radiation signatures". Both have been forwarded for further
examination to the Harwell laboratory in Oxfordshire for mass spectrometry - used by the Ministry
of Defence - which has confirmed the concentration of uranium isotopes in the samples.

Dr Busby's initial report states that there are two possible reasons for the contamination.
"The first is that the weapon was some novel small experimental nuclear fission device or
other experimental weapon (eg, a thermobaric weapon) based on the high temperature of
a uranium oxidation flash ... The second is that the weapon was a bunker-busting
conventional uranium penetrator weapon employing enriched uranium rather than
depleted uranium." A photograph of the explosion of the first bomb shows large clouds
of black smoke that might result from burning uranium.

* The "tens of thousands" refers to what still lie unexploded from the 1,200,000
bomblets dropped in school playgrounds, apartment complexes, farm land
roadside scrub areas, in fact anywhere where children play and adults work. These
bomblets will lie unexploded  for over  a decade.

The Amerikan Regime and Israel is testing viability of using nukes for war!

I am sure, the Amerikan Regime is planning use of TACTICAL NUKE for conventional war!

The Japanese nuke bombing gave them some idea!
Now Iraq and Lebanon seems to be testing grounds for small kiloton nukes!

I am sure the British, Chinese have already in their arsenal, aircraft carrier bursting tactical nuke tip missiles.
The ENORMOUS PROPAGANDA against nuclear energy is a PREVENTATIVE measure against nuclear weapons proliferation!

Look at the MAP, Mr. Christopher!
USA has created BUFFER of nuclear states to protect its CRUDE oil in Arab States.
Russian Federation, possibly Persia, Pakistan and India.
(This is their Plan C as definately Plan A to secure Central Asian oil has failed, Plan B to occupy Mesopotamia is another failure)

The UK needs to beef up the NAVY...

....especially the new 5th Generation missile cruisers! - makes obsolete aircraft carrier battle groups.

and at least 2 force projection units!

I think you are right about the "buffer". Perhaps Israel is a USA buffer,
if the USA wants to use nukes in that area Israel could be the launch pad.
The real BUFFER is GW Bush and the clever ones are his Zionist "advisors"
