Courtesy of The Independent comes a pretty terrifying story about some unusual injuries discovered among the corpses of Lebanese killed during the recent attacks on Lebanon. The evidence seems to point towards the Israeli military using non-conventional weapons that burn flesh to the bone and shatter internal organs without leaving any outside traces.

Buried within the piece though is this revelationary quote: “The Israel Defence Forces said yesterday all its “weapons and ammunition are legal under international law and conform with international standards”.” Comforting thought….

It’s a shame that the actions of the government can’t also be legal under international law and conform with international standrads, but that’s what we’re coming to expect from semi-fascistic states these days.

Sad, but true.
