[quote=“Mark Nagel”]Lord Lucan,
You’re right. I did a Google News search, and I found 98 websites that say that the oil spill was caused by Israel bombing a power plant at Jiyeh during the first few days of the war. I couldn’t find a single website that says that the oil spill was caused by any other reason.
Also I noticed that almost all of the major U.S. news websites (CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) never mentioned the oil spill![/quote]Mark -
I also did a ‘Google’ search on this a day or so ago, when I posted above, and it seems that buried in the origianl release - I think dated 28 Jul 2006, buried in the release is a statement that this spill was the result of a Hezzbollah missle hitting an Egyptian oil ship. It quotes several wywwitnesses and also mentions an Egyptian sailor on the ship being killed by the missile.
I have also seen comments regarding the spread pattern of the oil indicating this typifies a spill occuring at sea - close to shore - but still at sea. Rather than leakage from an on shore oil terminal strike.
Points for consideration.
