Now I know a lot on here support Russia and Mr Assad. But is white phosphorous classed as a chemical weapon ? Well because using it on peoples you earlier in the dirty dirty proceedings in Aleppo, have bussed to an area Idlib after a concerted effort to Bomb the byjesus with planes ( Russian and Syrian ) Cruise type missiles ( Russia remember ) and Syrian, Hezbolla, Iranian and Russian Troops. Also after recent plays they might end up with a bit more and this time the missiles will be aimed to kill maybe ?

Yes and no. Used as a smoke screen or marker device, no. Used on people or as an offensive weapon, then it can be.

There is white phosphorous being used by the coalition in Mosul and Raqqa as well. Its primary purpose is not as a weapon, but I suppose it can be used ineffectively as one.

We called it "willie P" when I was in the Army, and it ignites on contact with oxygen . If any gets on your skin you have to keep it away from oxygen until a Dr. can remove it.

Looks like someone's laying a smokescreen to me.

That's the primary use of white phosphorous.

It's pretty much universally used by every armed force out there.

No. It's an incendiary. The term 'chemical weapon' generally is used for:

Nerve agents
Vesicants (blistering agents)
Blood agents (cyanogenic agents)
Choking agents (pulmonary agents)
Riot-control agents (tear gases)
Psychomimetic agents
Toxins

So Sarin would be, but phosphorous is not. I recall some years ago the specious reasoning "phosphorous is a chemical, and it's used as a weapon, so it's a chemical weapon" going about, but the problem is one could say the same of anything, since everything is a chemical. Thus, you could put bullets into the same sequence, or baseball bats, or knives, or a bucket of water.

It works wonders as a distraction agent. There are few contact breakers more effective than a couple of wp grenades stuck to the front of a claymore with 100mph tape. You just have to bunch your pursuers up to get the most out of it.
