    EDIT: Put a (?) in there on edit..don't want the Black Suits carrying me away! Should have put it in there but i copied the title...Bad FBN...Bad Boy.

    Interesting and horrendous story. First i ever heard of this and the story is like 3 years old. I am not one to question our soldiers in any way. But...this story does make you wonder what the leadership was thinking...I am rolling into Baghdad we were already light years ahead of the resistance.

    What's horrendous about using it against the opposing army/fighters ?

    If it's effective at killing the enemy I have no problem with it. I don't see where the problem is here.

    Re: US admits it used napalm bombs in Iraq

    There is no really humane way to kill soldiers in a war. apparently is isn't illegal to use napalm on soldiers. What is the issue here?

    The problem is that they used it in the city itself indiscriminantly...call me naive...but I thought we only bombed enemy positions at that time when going in.

    The issue is that they used in to destroy about 2/3 of the city indiscriminantly killing @ 2000 to 6000 civilians...if true...that's quite harsh. I thought we learned that lesson when we used it on villages in Vietnam?

    Re: US admits it used napalm bombs in Iraq

    The story you referenced mentioned the approached to a bridge manned by Iraqi troop and an outpost near the Kuwati border. Is there link that mentions bombing cities indiscriminatly?

    Well, I'm not going to get into the entire thing...it's just that more and more news is coming out and I would not be surprised we will hear more.

    All we heard about going into Iraq was smart bombs and smart weapons...Napalm and Phosphorous are not smart weapons.

    Yes...a bunch of them...I put a link to the whole page. I'm sure some of it is biased...but somewhere in there lies a horrible truth.

    I understand you just heard about it, I'm not ripping on you for that . . . but this is three years old, don't you think the MSM would have jumped on this if we'd killed tens of thousands of civilians indiscriminently ?

    Why ? Because you say so ? Or because it's the terrible USA ?

    If the intention was to stay for a bunch of years...I think the use of those weapons was wrong. They called it the "Shock and Awe Campaign"...they were right...but these people were prepared to die.

    Let's suppose we didn't use the weapons...would the citizens have turned on us? I think once we killed those civilians like that our fate was sealed.

    Just asking the question PFIM...just asking the question...like always.

    Why would you 'assume' that the napalm was used improperly against civilians? The British newspaper didn't report that.

    I never post to make people think I am right. I always post giving my opinion and asking questions. It's called DEBATE...you seem to hate DEBATE BF...that's your problem..not mine.

    I could care less if i am right or wrong on this thread or any other..it means little to me when my opinion is wrong or correct...I just post to encourage debate.
