The US is using napalm
    #1396755 - 03/21/03 01:06 AM (21 years, 2 months ago)

excerpt from this article.

"They were supported by US Navy aircraft which dropped 40,000 pounds of explosives and napalm, a US officer told the Herald."

wtf? they're using napalm?!?

"A legal expert at the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva said the use of napalm or fuel air bombs was not illegal "per se" because the US was not a signatory to the 1980 weapons convention which prohibits and restricts certain weapons. "But the US has to apply the basic principles of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and take all precautions to protect civilians. In the case of napalm and fuel air bombs, these are special precautions because these are area weapons, not specific weapons," said Dominique Loye, the committee's adviser on weapons and IHL."

So if it's not illegal, and we targeted a lone command center on a hill away from civilians, what's the problem?

Its illegal for all the countries who signed the agreement mentioned.

Surely Napalm is a WMD? oh the irony. It make me sick to the stomach.

As the article clearly points out, we didn't so it's not illegal.

I suppose if you dropped napalm on a stadium filled with people it could be used as a WMD. However it wasn't so the reason your stomach is turning is your failure to see the difference.

What a surprise.

how do you destroy a desert..? with napalm? or by burning massive amounts of oil...intentionally?

napalm is used as a scare tactic. you can see the explosions from a distance, but the destruction it causes isn't even worth the effort, if destruction is the intent. there's better ordinance for that.
