Yesterday CNN was running a story of a family from Tyre. In the attack that killed their father two Lebanese children had suffered what appeared to be chemical burns. The son, about 9 I think, had such a badly burned face he was hallucinating, I don't know if they thought he would survive, and his sister, 8 months old, had burns too. The mother was beside herself, but I believe uninjured. Well the doctor treating the children believed from the nature and smell of the burns that they had been attacked with phosphorous.
Mysteriously this report was scrubbed from CNN's site.
Last night, my cohort emailed a link to me, as he is oft to do, from Daily Kos.
Well I sent this to my husband, who is always inclined to verify the information his commie pinko wife sends to him and found this lovely article...
Unique weapons. Now there is a really special euphemism. They are quick to stress that white phosphorous is in compliance with international laws of confrontation, as long as it is used on a battlefield and not on civilians...I am sure that they can twist the evidence and logic to get away with this, after all, they are backed 100% by the Bush Administration, who is the leader in war crimes and atrocities.
