Theres no banning of flame throwers by the Geneva Convention, so I don't understand why the need to ban WP which is similar.

as the pictures and video from fullajah have shown the city was blanketed in the stuff - somewhat indiscriminately ; but this has been discussed to death elsewhere with both sides argueing as for the hows and whys.
one mans insurgent is another mans freedom fighter

So by pictures and video you saw, do you know what the target was that was being attacked vs. say the battery conducting the firing, with forward observers and UAV providing imagery for targeting?
As for the insurgent vs. freedom fighter. If they are fighting against their fellow countrymen, and sovereign(and legitimately elected) government, what category do you think they most likely fall under?[/
