Very likely scenario.

The list of "cough" countries could be quite a bit longer but yeah, that's one that would likely be on it.

That's one use for napalm: burns for quite a while and very stubbornly. Very hard to put out unless its oxygen supply can be completely removed. Water won't help much unless it's in copious amounts.

Your scenario has merit; however it doesn't address why anyone would need the full output of a supplier at two-month intervals. That suggests a much wider plan of use than just torching a few places so they can't be put out in a hurry. OTOH, that aspect does not actually deny your scenario, either. A large number of fairl;y big targets, maybe?

***ATTENTION***

Do not post information on making Napalm. ATS is not the place to post such information and this thread isn't about that.

Do not reply to this post.

Possibly a multi-staged attack on multiple server farms around the world, or very specific countries?? We are talking the CIA here, meaning hush hush information control and tactics. Perhaps it was meant to be passd on to an ally for use in the skies of a battleground in which most of the world's global and regional military powers and alliances are currently fighting around.

There are so many jets in the sky and groups on the ground in Syria, many times nobody knows for sure who's jets were behind a specific strike or which group did a hit and run surface attack.

Also, would Napalm serve any functional use in the elimination of oil producing infrastructure?? I think not, as mostly only seals and hoses are vulnerable. The metal would hold its integrity until fire control arrives.

With oil-producing infrastructure it'd be far easier just to hit it with a regular bomb or missile, or ground-based sabotage. Using napalm on eg an oil refinery or pumping facility would seem like overkill.

However, let's think beyond that: napalming an oil facility would make it look like a fire had occured there due to some on-site accident or something, whereas a bomb or missile might be noticed as external input, as it were.

Also -- and this is a horrible thought, but has to be considered -- napalm will take out the workers. Those who aren't caught by it will be running for their lives anyway. And then the place is going to have fires and explosions all over the place, as big oil facilities tend to do when all the fail-safes have been overloaded.

Re the CIA, that could be a red herring. Ok, so Thor supplies weaponry to CIA, but not only them. Maybe we are supposed to think, "Oh, this is for CIA," when it could be someone else entirely.

Like I said, I find it too pat that all those tieing-in details just happened to come out together.

But whoever it's for, they (apparently/allegedly) want a lot of it. So that implies multiple targets. As to where, who knows?

If the story has basis in fact and is not a sting of some kind, I guess we'll find out eventually.

Thor is not the only arms dealer in the world, after all.

I forgot to address the following:

That's very true. And I would expect that all sides actually prefer it that way. They can even get away with war crimes and blame the other side -- or the other side's allies. "The fog of war", at least in resp. of airstrikes, must be at least 90% BS. They all know darned well where their planes are and what their missions are.

like a large scale version of Hillary burning documents at her New York home when that smoke and fire was reported


Yeah, except that never happened.

It was a fire in the ceiling of a building used by the secret service.

Naw man,, they were burning ng evidence.

In any case, napalm is typically used to clear out land for It strips right?? Maybe they are ramping up to clear land for more bases in Rojava??

napalm is an anti personnel weapon. so unless the plan is taking out a lot of people from the air it is hard to see what anyone would be using it for. there are much better insidiarys that can claim to be dual use, like WP smoke.

So have at it. What does everyone else think?

Napalm sticks to kids.


That's the first thing that came to mind for me. I can only remember one verse from the running cadence we did in the AF many years ago:

F4 Phantom looking mean.
Family washing in a stream.
Drop some napalm, hear them scream.
Napalm sticks to kids.


Here's a link to the whole thing. It doesn't look like the verse I remember in in there though.
