    In the news I haven't heard any mention of the use of napalm in Afghanistan. Maybe we aren't using it because it is to inhumane compared to blowing the poor terrorist into bits.

    Real Fredneck, we used it on the Germans in W.W. II, and I think most of them are white folks.

    Are you sure it was banned? Or just "played down" because of the bad press from Vietnam...the little naked girl running away from the flames kinda made it "politically incorrect..."

    But after hearing the army spokesman say after the riot this weekend that "now we have to kill them all..." and nobody has bitched yet, maybe it's back on the table...

    The Germans complained we were using "Chemical Weapons" on them because of the Willy-Peter, we just ignored them...

    They complained about our "inhumane" trench shotguns in WWI too, from the people that brought you flamethrowers and Mustard Gas....

    We used napalm at DDay at Utah I think, if I remember right...haveta check...

    That "Not used against Whites" BS is just that...the A-Bomb was intended for use against Germany, the war just ended before it was ready...and if Adolf had finished it first, he would have used it at least against England...

    Just because the European Colonial Armies authorized "Dum Dums" against natives in Africa, but outlawed it in "civilized" warfare, PC police have tried to claim that against everything new in weaponry...

    We used massed incendiary bombing attacks against whole cities pretty indiscriminately, both against the Germans and the Japs, THAT was probably the most inhumane thing possible, IMHO, and no discrimination there....

    Chalk it up to Alexander the Great - his army slew their way through clear to the Hindu Kush(?).
    A LOT of Greek blood mingled in those populations, lots of beautiful northern Afghans

    (how's that for an on-topic post in the Mil History forum? )

    Good one, Rayra!

    But don't forget, Old Ghengis, Tamerlane, Attila, and just about every savage horse people of antiquity swept down on Afghanistan from the North and East too, lots of "war for the sake of the killing" genes in that pool too...
