Using Napalm in Iraq - The Story That Won't Die
National Debunker
...That the US has used white phosphorus to firebomb civilian targets with MK77 ordinance in assaults on Fallujah has been well known and leaking out around the edges of the US corporate media for more than a year. It also has been admitted to, indirectly, by the Pentagon. In June of 2005, the Independent/UK ran an article titled "US lied to Britain over use of napalm in Iraq war"...

FLASHBACK: Incinerating Iraqis: The Napalm Cover-Up
Mike Whitney
Two weeks ago the UK Independent ran an article which confirmed that the US had "lied to Britain over the use of napalm in Iraq." (6/17/05) Since then, not one American newspaper or TV station has picked up the story even though the Pentagon has verified the claims. This is the extent to which the American "free press" is yoked to the center of power in Washington. As we’ve seen with the treatment of the Downing Street Memo, (which was reluctant! ly reported five weeks after it appeared in the British press) the air-tight American media ignores any story that doesn’t embrace their collective support for the war (...) "Despite persistent rumors of injuries among Iraqis consistent with the use of incendiary weapons such as napalm" the Pentagon insisted that "US forces had not used a new generation of incendiary weapons, codenamed MK77, in Iraq." (UK Independent) The Pentagon lied...

US forces 'used chemical weapons' during assault on city of Fallujah
Peter Popham, The Independent
Powerful new evidence emerged yesterday that the United States dropped massive quantities of white phosphorus on the Iraqi city of Fallujah during the attack on the city in November 2004, killing insurgents and civilians with the appalling burns that are the signature of this weapon. Ever since the assault, which went unreported by any Western journalists, rumours have swirled that the Americans used chemical weapon! s on the city...

FLASHBACK: Weapons of Mass Destruction Employed by US to Imolate Falluja: White Phosphorus is a Chemical Weapon
Albasrah.net
The use of white phosphorus "violates the Geneva Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare. Incendiary agents such as napalm and phosphorus are not considered to be CW agents since they achieve their effect mainly through thermal energy. However, a report by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease ! Registry concludes that White Phosphorus achieves its effects mainly through non-thermal energy. It must be concluded that White Phosphorus is considered a CW [chemical weapon] agent, and would violate the Geneva Protocol since its use causes indiscriminate and extreme injuries especially when deployed in an Urban area such as Falluja, Iraq...

Will the BBC tell the truth about Fallujah?
The Cat's Dream
...On Thursday, 14 April, 2005, in the article "Did BBC ignore weapons claim?" Director of News Helen Boaden said: "But I repeat the point made by my editors, over many weeks of total access to the military operation, at all levels, we did not see banned weapons being used, deployed, or even discussed. We cannot therefore report their use. "Of course, we keep an open mind and will always investigate, and report, any hard evidence which comes to light.! " I would like to inform you about an "hard evidence": In a video you can even watch on line, RAI NEWS 24 shows that indeed the US used chemical weapons on civilians in Fallujah.

Operation “Steel Curtain”
Dahr Jamail's Iraq Dispatches
There is a huge US military operation once again targeting the Al-Qa’im area of Iraq, this one named "Steel Curtain." As tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the beginning of the massacre in Fallujah, the US military pushes on with house to house fighting in the small down of Husaybah, near Al-Qa’im. According to Al-Jazeera: "Falih Abd al-Karim, an Iraqi journalist, told Aljazeera that US and Iraqi forces were positioned in al-Sikak neighbourhood and n! orth and south of 12 Rabia al-Awal neighbourhood in central Husaybah. This came after US warplanes on Sunday evening targeted al-Jamahir, al-Risala and other neighbourhoods in the town, destroying houses, and killing and injuring dozens of people, he said. The bodies remained under the debris of the houses because US forces do not allow burials or transfer of the injured to hospitals, Abd al-Karim added....
