    U.S. uses napalm gas in Fallujah – Witnesses
    11/28/2004 9:00:00 PM GMT


    The U.S. military is secretly using banned napalm gas and other outlawed weapons against civilians in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, eyewitnesses reported.

    Residents in Fallujah reported that innocent civilians have been killed by napalm attacks, a poisonous cocktail of polystyrene and jet fuel which makes the human body melt.

    Since the U.S. offensive started in Fallujah earlier this month, there have been reports of “melted” bodies which proves that the napalm gas had been used.

    "Poisonous gases have been used in Fallujah," 35-year-old Fallujah resident, Abu Hammad said. "They used everything -- tanks, artillery, infantry, and poisonous gas. Fallujah has been bombed to the ground." Hammad was living in the Julan district of Fallujah which witnessed some of the heaviest attacks.

    Other residents of that area also said that banned weapons were used. Abu Sabah, said; “They used these weird bombs that put up smoke like a mushroom cloud… then small pieces fall from the air with long tails of smoke behind them."

    He said that pieces of these strange bombs explode into large fires that burn the skin even when water is thrown on the burns.

    Phosphorous arms and the napalm gas are known to have such effects. "People suffered so much from these," Abu Sabah said.

    Fallujah “almost gone”

    Kassem Mohammed Ahmed, who fled Fallujah last week, said that he witnessed many atrocities committed by U.S. troops in the shattered city. "I watched them roll over wounded people in the street with tanks," he said. "This happened so many times."

    Another Fallujah resident Khalil (40) said that “Fallujah is suffering too much, it is almost gone now." He added that refugees are in a miserable situation now, "It's a disaster living here at this camp," Khalil said. "We are living like dogs and the kids do not have enough clothes."

    In many refugee camps around Fallujah and Baghdad, people are living without enough food, clothing and shelter. Relief groups estimate that there are more than 15,000 refugee families in temporary shelters outside Fallujah.

    Blair under fire over the use of napalm

    On Saturday, Labor MPs have demanded that British Prime Minister confront the Commons over the use of the deadly gas in Fallujah.

    Halifax Labor MP Alice Mahon said: "I am calling on Mr. Blair to make an emergency statement to the Commons to explain why this is happening. It begs the question: 'Did we know about this hideous weapon's use in Iraq?'"

    Furious critics have also demanded that Blair threatens the U.S. to pullout British forces from Iraq unless the U.S. stops using the world’s deadliest weapon.

    The United Nations banned the use of the napalm gas against civilians in 1980 after pictures of a naked wounded girl in Vietnam shocked the world.

    The United States, which didn't endorse the convention, is the only nation in the world still using the deadly weapon.

    Now I thought that Napalm was banned world wide following Vietnam but it seems to be that the US is the only one who didn't agree to this. I know there where reports of 'cluster' bombs being used too which are also supposedly banned.

    It makes you ask the question, what is the point in banning weapons when a) they still get made and b) countries still use them?

    Napalm is not a gas, its a liquid.

    They arent using Napalm, they are using a more modern variant thats actually worse... however, although everyone else finds it sickening and is against the spirit of the ban, they can and do claim that its not "Napalm", as its not the original stuff

    It was also used in Afganistan and the actual war in Iraq, to widespread criticism, which was ignored.

    This is one of the reasons Bush and Co are blackmailing other countries into excluding Americans from prosecution in the International Criminal Court, together with the other "War Crimes" that have been widely reported internationally, but for some reason not as much inside the USA.

    The other thing thats laughable is the use of 500lb bombs in a city (including on a Market on Market Day) and claiming that there were few civilian casualties... if it wasnt so sickening, it'd be funny that they can think people believe them... on saying this, you have seen that there are plenty of the US citizens that do.

    napalm isn't a weapon. it's a "defoliant" that just coincidentally burns and kills people. we all know how thick the jungles of... um... iraq are.

    I'll predict that 51% of America won't care that this is happening.

    The courts are still out on that one.. I dont think they did.

    When, as an example, one county has 140,000 votes on a machine, when there are only 14,000 voters. The County is overwhelmingly "Bush", even though the Exit Polls put it as overwhelmingly "Kerry"... and this happens again and again.

    And in a county in Florida they caught them throwing a load of the "Paper Trail" away, even though they had already spotted discrepincies.. and surprise surprise all the ones in the Bin were Kerries... well, its not surprising we dont really believe that the USA is a Democracy any more is it?

    Was the word "ignorant" and it's derived word "ignorance" only found in the American dictionaries, or not at all in the American dictionaries?

    You know, everyday I die a little inside knowing that the injustices that America is doing right now will never be looked upon or retributed in anyway, just sad, this is what humanity has come to .
