This is a picture after a napalm attack. Napalm is the combination of jet fuel and polystyrene to produce a material that is highly inflammable and sticks to people's bodies when it burns. It is, in my opinion, right up there with white phosphorus as a chemical weapon.
The United States is the ONLY country that has not signed the United Nations ban on napalm.
You would have thought that we would have learned from Vietnam. The above picture was very instrumental in turning the American people against this awful War, which we lost.
It is the height of irony that we are currently trying Saddam Hussein on the grounds that he used chemical weapons against his own people when in Fallujah we used both White Phosphorus and Napalm.
Our experience of History is that the worm always turns. I don't think we have ever fully paid for Vietnam and now we have this albatross of Iraq about our neck.
Ah! well-a-day! what evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung."
