Is WP a chemical weapon?...or it an incendiary weapon?...there is still a sizeable debate with no official answer. Imo, when WP is used physically
against tangible targets, its' use is that of a chemical weapon, therefore illegal by the implications of traditional international standards, but
that’s just an opinion….
What is interesting is the hypocrisy involved in Lebanon’s accusations and mentioning an invocation of the GC’s...
Especially since Lebanon refused to sign the convention banning chemical weapons on Oct 20, 2006! …and has never been a signatory to the CWC…
…not to mention Lebanon is also not a party to Article 90, additional protocol III of the GC, the CRC, ICC, ENMOD or the 1999 Hague
But Lebanon is party to the major GC’s and its’ AP II of 1977, yet Lebanon does not levy accusations against Hezbollah for any flagrancies
under these conventions?
To my point...
[quote[So which was it..open ground or Hizbollah hiding among civilians, Israel? Make up your mind. Either way it didn't matter to them. A dead arab
is a good arab to them.
When is knowingly endangering civilians by hiding among civilians while conducting hostilities ever justified?...
