A few posts back, I took note when the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, responding to a reporter's question, flatly denied that the IDF was using cluster bombs in Southern Lebanon, this in the same week Israel requested that the United States speed delivery of replacement . . . cluster weapons.
I just watched a report on BBC America, in which their reporter followed a UN mine removal team through neighborhoods in Lebanon pointing out the many still unexploded Israeli cluster bombs that littered the landscape. One poor man had one of these things sitting on the roof of his house, where it had landed during the shellings. At one location, the reporter found seven Israeli cluster bombs in a 20 square meter area.
Rather as if Hezbollah were to say, "what rockets? We don't fire rockets!" eh?
