Keith I don't know if your continual assertions against all scientific and military evidence that WP can not inflict harm because it is 'not a weapon' is pathological or simply perverse..." ~ Emma B
Talk about misquotes and misrepresentations.
You owe Keith an apology, not the other way around.
Everybody knows that WP can hurt people, but marking targets, illuminating the battlefield and obscuring troop movements with smoke are normal everyday activities in war. Neither civilians or combatants are directly targeted.
The WP "incendiary devices" are used to start fires, but I see no honest evdence that coalition forces are using them in Iraq or Afghanistan, and precious little evidence that the Israelis used them in Gaza.
