U.S. Hypocrisy At It's Finest: U.S. Forces Used Chemical Weapons During Assult On Fallujah

Some shocking and incredible evidence came out yesterday that the U.S. dropped huge amounts of white phosphorus on the Iraqi city of Fallujah during an attack in November 2004. The attack killed insurgents, as
well as civilians, with horrible burns which are the signature of this white phosphorus weapon.
The assult went unreported by Western journalists (no surprise). But on Nov 10th 2004 the Islam Online website wrote: "U.S. troops are reportedly using chemical weapons & poisonous gas in it's large scale offensive on the Iraqi resistance bastion of Fallujah, a grim reminder of Saddam Hussein's alleged gassing of Kurds in 1988." The website quoted insurgent sources as saying, " The U.S. occupation troops are gassing resistance fighters & confronting them with internationally banned chemical weapons."
The U.S. denied the reports back in December. The U.S.info website said, " Phosphorus shells are not outlawed. U.S. forces have used them very sparingly in Fallujah, for "illumination purposes" ." " They were fired into the air to illuminate enemy positions at night, not at enemy fighters."
Photographs, videos, and interviews with American soldiers who took part in the Fallujah attack have surfaced, which provides graphic proof that phosphorus shells were widely used in the city as a weapon.
In a documentary that's going to be broadcast by RAI, Italian State broadcaster, a former American soldier who fought at Fallujah says, " I heard the order to pay attention because they were going to use white phosphorus on Fallujah. In military jargon it's known as Willy Pete." "Phosphorus burns bodies, in fact it melts the flesh all the way down to the bone...I saw the burned bodies of women and children. Phosphorus explodes and forms a cloud. Anyone within a radius of 150 meters is done for."
Pictures on the website , rainews24 , shows what this former soldier means. The photographs, which are provided by the Studies Centre of Human Rights in Fallujah, shows color close-ups of bodies of Fallujah residents, some still in their beds, whose skin have been dissolved. The bodies were burned, but their clothes were intact.
There is evidence that not only white phosphorus was used, but incendiary bombs called Mark 77, a new improved form of napalm-which is a breach of the UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons of 1980.
Italian satellite TV is set to broadcast the evidence of chemical weapons used by U.S. troops on civilians.
So this is how the U.S. "took Fallujah". Disgusting, and very hypocritical. I await for the shit to hit the fan.

"Fallujah, The Concealed Massacre" will be shown on RAI News Nov 8th @ 7:35 (via Hot Bird satellite, Sky Channel 506 & RAI-3), and rebroadcast over the next 2 days.
