    which are at best inaccurate...

    And reports of White Phosphorus and napalm laced claymore bomblets...  Yeah it's getting really ugly.

    •  What A Waste (0+ / 0-)

      Why would anyone develop a napalm-laced (whatever that is) claymore bomblet, which I can presume only would be used in a cluster bomb?  Why would anyone believe that such a weapon was being developed?  By definition, a napalm bomb is an area weapon, as is a cluster bomb.  Putting napalm into the bomblet submunitions in a cluster bomb would only increase the weight of the bomb's structure compared to the active component, a bad trade-off.  Even putting WP into cluster bomb submunitions doesn't make a lot of sense, for pretty much the same reasons.
