Israeli cluster bombs blanket Lebanese towns

01-09-2006 07:31

Unexploded Israeli cluster munitions dropped during the 34-day war in Lebanon have killed at least 13 civilians and wounded 50 since the ceasefire took effect on August 14. About 100,000 unexploded cluster bomblets litter the country, preventing large numbers of people from returning to their homes. Israel’s bombardment of urban and residential areas with cluster munitions was a deliberate tactic by the government of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to terrorise the Lebanese people and prevent refugees from returning to their homes.

British Troops Mobilizing on the Iranian Border

31-08-2006 06:50

If Iran were to be invaded and defeated, much as Yugoslavia was by NATO, Khuzestan could find itself in a "state of autonomy" under Anglo-American protection much like Kosovo. Something Iran would never accept. It is also no mere coincidence that the British government—whose forces are bordering Khuzestan—have strong ties and nurture separatist movements outside Iran declaring to represent Khuzestan. It is also these groups or self-portrayed ‘fronts for independence’ that claim to be behind attacks in Khuzestan, Iran; something that the Iranian government has repeatedly held the British government, along with others, responsible for.

Alarm in Washington over deepening disaster in Afghanistan

30-08-2006 09:26
