The war that was "Made in the U.S.A."

This won't be news to any of my readers, I'm sure:
It has been revealed that the bombs used in the attacks Israel launched on the southern Lebanese village of Qana were produced by the US.

The British newspaper Guardian reported that the bombs used in the attacks were laser-controlled BSU 37/B bunker busters manufactured by the US.

The Independent claimed that inscriptions on shrapnel found at the sight of the attack indicate that the bombs were manufactured by the US.

The same type bomb had been used in last week’s attack that killed four UN observers.

The Bush administration had shipped 2.5 tons, 100 GBU-28 “bunker busters” to the region after the operation began on 12 July.
