Laws Regulating Use
According to the Chemical Weapons Convention Schedule of Chemicals, the chemical P4 is neither a toxic chemical nor a precursor to a toxic chemical. Protocol III of The Convention on Prohibition or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May be Deemed to be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects (CCW) prohibits and restricts the use of incendiary weapons in civilian populations. It defines an incendiary weapon as "any weapon or munition which is primarily designed to set fire to objects or to cause burn injury to persons"; this definition excludes "munitions which may have incidental effects, such as illuminants, tracers, smoke or signaling systems." Under that qualification, WP is not necessarily considered an "incendiary weapon" if it incidentally sets buildings on fire. The United States has ratified other protocols and amendments of the CCW, but it has not ratified Protocol III.
Everyone has an absolute right to their own opinion or interpretation of facts. We don't have a right to our own set of facts. W.P. is an incendiary munition, not a chemical weapon.edit on 5-5-2013 by Wrabbit2000 because: Spacing adjustment

I shouldn't be surprised, but the title and the point of this thread seems to have escaped ATS leftist members in that obama is PRAISING Israel's actions. Why isn't this being discussed in the thread?
Is it because that the members who voted for obama are also the members who always take the opposing side against Israel?
How do you deal with this Juxtaposition, ignore it like this thread?
