*UPDATE*: Even FURTHER Proof Of A Libel

Maybe, The Independent and their "scientist" were testing samples from Three Mile Island, or maybe they were testing from samples from Chernobyl. Who knows? But, they were NOT testing samples from Lebanon. Now, I now there are a blogger or two who might accuse even the UN of being pro-Israel. I certainly don't know what Candy-Land world they live in, but hey, who am I to judge? Even this United Nations, you know the one that said that Zionism=Racism, have stated that NO DEPLETED OR ENRICHED URANIUM WAS FOUND IN LEBANON. This comes after the UN conducted their own tests in southern Lebanon. Loe and Behold, no nukes and dirty bombs were used in by Israel. Hmmm.... Even-though the UN announced the "finding" that Israel used white Phosphorous in their heavy artillery, this comes as no surprise as Israel admitted it weeks ago. It is also not a big to-do since there is nothing illegal about using them when they're used against MILITARY TARGETS, which is how they were used against Hezbollah. (See this articles for explanation on what a military target is.) It IS a war crime and against the Geneva Conventions, in any circumstance, to use cluster bombs, such as the ones used by HEZBOLLAH in this past summers "war". There has been NO hullabaloo or front page articles in The Independent about that yet. Oh well. Do you think we'll be seeing any apologizes or corrections from The Independent any time soon??? Neither do I. I'm sure they'll stick to the authenticity of the story like the Jenin "massacre".
UN: IDF used phosphorous weapons

[...] Steiner also said the UN team found no evidence of penetrators or metal made of depleted uranium or other radioactive material. The assessment appeared to counter some media reports that suggested uranium-based munitions had been used during the monthlong war that ended on Aug. 14.

"No depleted uranium shrapnel, or other radioactive residue was found. The analysis of all smear samples taken shows no depleted uranium, nor enriched uranium nor higher than natural uranium content in the samples," he said in a statement.

Steiner said the UN team collected samples from Sept. 30 to Oct. 21 with one group focusing on munitions during the conflicts. Several samples were taken to three independent laboratories in Europe for tests, the statement said.

Interesting. Technically this does not prove anything. It all depends on getting the right sample. Personally I would be somewhat surprised if depleted U munitions were not used. They were used in all other modern conflicts... If true this could be the reason Israel had such a poor record of penetrating Hezbollah shelters.

As for the enriched U... I would love to talk to the guys that claimed Israel used munitions with enriched Uranium. Unbelievable.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. It depends on what the tanks were used for this summer, which was not for much and not the way they are supposed to use. That's why I'm actually NOT surprised that no depleted U was found.
