sorry thats bollocks
an enhanced radiation weapon is a nuclear bomb , usually in the megaton class , with an outer core and case of the salting material - in the case of an enhanced neutron the outer core would be chromium with x-ray mirrors to enhance the neutrom flux - with gold instead you enhance x-rays
but its still a thermonuclear bomb!
theres nothing `clean` about it - it goes bang , and there a mushroom cloud - its just the kill range on the small weapons - MGM-52 LANCE with the W-70 dial a yield ERW warhead was greater than the prompt effects.
as for baseball sized neutron bombs - that`ll be the myth called Red Mercury

A Lebanese lawmaker holds sleeping cells working for Tel Aviv responsible for carrying out rocket attacks from southern Lebanon into Israel.
In an interview with NBN television on Friday, Change and Reform bloc MP Nabil Nicolas warned that some parties attempt to give the impression that Hezbollah was violating the UN Security Council Resolution 1701.
Nicolas said the area from where the rockets were launched on Thursday was under the authority of UN peacekeeping forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and Hezbollah forces were not present in the southern Lebanese region.
This is while even Israeli authorities have admitted that the rockets fired at northern Israel were of an old model no longer used by Hezbollah.

They could use these rockets very effective to show to whole world that they are victims too, asking wider justify to their acts... "Look what our neighbors do to us!"

So who's actually firing the rockets from Lebanon?
At least three Katyusha rockets fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel on Wednesday morning, reigniting fears of a second front opening during Israel's offensive against Hamas in Gaza.
The Israel Defense Forces responded soon after, firing a number of artillery shells at "the source of fire" in southern Lebanon, the army said. Lebanese security officials said a total of eight shells were fired.
