Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
Emma, WP smoke is a war fighting munition.
WP can be used in anti personel weapons, but armies of democratic countries only use it in smoke and illuminant munitions.
These are dangerous but not in comparison to munitions designed to cause casualties.
Do I need to say again that I deplored its use here and said it might have been illegal?
Jim, I have not backpedalled or changed my argument at all.
All I ever challenged you on was that Israel did not use chemical weapons.
Do you now accept that I, and Emma, were right about that and you were wrong?
