Buddy can you spare a Dime?

I found this at Agitprop and man did it bring out the conspiracy theorist in me.
The health ministry in Gaza reported that these injuries came from an "unprecedented type of projectile," and also noted severe burning and badly damaged internal organs. It called for an investigation into the cause of the wounds.

"You have complete burns that lead to amputation. You find shrapnel entering the body and leaving very, very small holes. We have never seen this before," said Khalid Radi, a spokesman at the health ministry.

Tissue samples from patients in Gaza were given to journalists from the Italian television channel RAI. In a documentary shown last week, the channel said the injuries appeared similar to the effects of Dime. An Italian laboratory that analysed the samples reportedly said its results were compatible with the hypothesis that a Dime weapon was involved.

The weapon is new and in the US it is still in the early stages of development. It has a carbon-fibre casing and contains fine tungsten particles rather than ordinary metal shrapnel. It causes a very powerful blast, but with a much more limited radius than other explosives.

However, the Israeli military denies the use of Dime weapons.
I read that and immediately recalled the sudden rushing of "additional bombs" to Israel at the height of the Lebanon crisis. Think about it. The weapons are in development. They need to be tested... Draw your own conclusions, but I find it an rather odd coincidence.

EEK! That's a grisly parallel to Big Pharma testing new drugs in the third world because the trials are too dangerous to do here.
