According to a story printed in today’s INDEPENDENT :
American pilots dropped the controversial incendiary agent napalm on Iraqi troops during the advance on Baghdad. The attacks caused massive fireballs that obliterated several Iraqi positions.
Good. I’d be annoyed if they didn’t use the best weapon for the purpose. Clearly the intent was to reduce casualties on both sides by crushing Saddam’s ability to resist. What better way than to create a few examples? Granted that it’s not very pleasant for those under the bombs… but would greater numbers of the enemy dying in more “pleaseant” ways (along with far more of our own people dying as well) have satisfied the anti-war crowd any more?
