Numerous reports have prompted outraged british MP's to investigate the use of napalm by the USA during the Al-Fallujah offensive. They demanded explanations from Tony Blair on whether the UK knew about the chemical agent's use. uk
November 28, 2004 - US troops are secretly using outlawed napalm gas to wipe out remaining insurgents in and around Fallujah.

News that President George W. Bush has sanctioned the use of napalm, a deadly cocktail of polystyrene and jet fuel banned by the United Nations in 1980, will stun governments around the world.

And last night Tony Blair was dragged into the row as furious Labour MPs demanded he face the Commons over it. Reports claim that innocent civilians have died in napalm attacks, which turn victims into human fireballs as the gel bonds flames to flesh.

Outraged critics have also demanded that Mr Blair threatens to withdraw British troops from Iraq unless the US abandons one of the world's most reviled weapons. Halifax Labour MP Alice Mahon said: "I am calling on Mr Blair to make an emergency statement to the Commons to explain why this is happening. It begs the question: 'Did we know about this hideous weapon's use in Iraq?'"

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The use of Napalm is a condemnable atrocity, banned by the fourth amendment to the geneva conventions, 1980. The USA didnt sign that treaty, but still is held to observe it under customary law and the jus cogens.

It seems paradoxical to me that a country can invade another on the pretext of finding banned weapons, while using banned weapons itself.

Ya thats pretty amazing but the thing is we are fighting a bitoch of an enemy who would gladly kill our familes and slit our throats with rusty knifes. We get condemned becasue we use a more effecient way of killing them, we do it militaristic but yet they stick to thier nomadic, savage roots. We should kill thier entire race and that would probably end many of our problems that the white civilization will face in the future.
