Putting the pieces together after the cease fire is taking time and effort. More than was anticipated. Hence the pause in blogging. Today Humpty Dumpty came to mind.
Is any one in Beirut feeling a funny burning sensation on the face and in the eyes like me? Especially those who visit the suburbs? Could it just be the hot August weather?
Al-Akhbar [Ar] reported yesterday that a bomb hole (3m deep 10m wide) in Khiam was tested for nuclear radiation by Dr. Ibrahim Rashidi of the Lebanese University and Mohammad Kobeisi of the National Council for Scientific Research. The radiation level was very high according to both. Depleted uranium is suspected. Samples were taken for further testing to determine the type of radiation. Bernard Koushner (ex minister, France) was present according to Al-Akhbar. The article, written by Kamel Jaber, mentions suspicions of Khiam being hit by Tomahawk rockets.
See this article titled “Israelis Rain Down Deadly DU on Lebanese Civilians“. Thanks Wiggo.
A lot is going on in Lebanese politics in the aftermath of the bombing. Most are worth mentioning and/or discussing. Changes need to be made. In states-like Israel-officials are held responsible for their decisions and action. Right? At least this, should be done here too.
Plenty is going on in Iraq and Palestine too.
Who is tampering with our lives?
