Further confirmation of US white phosphorus use in Fallujah

20-11-2007 11:32

November 19, 2007 --

WMR has learned from U.S. military sources who participated in the 2005 "Siege of Fallujah" that U.S. troops used deadly "white phosphorus" (WP) on civilian targets. The Pentagon apparently used a loophole in the Chemical Weapons Convention that does not list white phosphorus in its annex as a chemical weapons. However, the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons prohibits the use of incendiary weapons against civilians or civilian areas. The convention 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 through the action of flame, heat, or combination thereof, produced by a chemical reaction of a substance delivered on the target." White phosphorus meets the definition of an incendiary weapon. It is the Napalm of the 21st century.

Cotswold Hunt served Asbo warning

20-11-2007 00:40

By massive, concerted effort, the residents of my hamlet managed to get an Asbo warning served on the hunt. This was achieved because we are an articulate group of people demanding protection with the support of our MP. Initially the Asbo officer, a retired policeman, was horrified at the thought of giving an Asbo to the master of the hunt, but he found that we had a "compelling" case and went out on a limb for us. The warning was issued to three hunt masters, so this caused a bit of a ripple locally.
