Clustered crimes

"The Israeli army on Monday said it will not press charges against officers who ordered the use of cluster bombs during last year's war in Lebanon, brushing off international criticism that the weapons unnecessarily put Lebanese civilians at risk.

Announcing the results of a more than year-long probe, the army said investigators determined Israel's use of cluster bombs was a "concrete military necessity" and did not violate international humanitarian law.

Lebanese officials accused the army of covering up war crimes."

I did not expect self indictment. I'm only blogging this as a follow up to my previous article: "Why South Lebanon remains unfarmed this year".
