Weapons of Mass Destruction

Lebanese doctors have claimed Israel deployed Weapons of Mass Destruction : Phosphorus

Excluding the obvious responses : that phosphorus and its resulting smoke are less lethal than fuel oil fumes, and that it doesn't cause a skeleton to shrink in size, there's one thing I like about this sort of mess.

The same people that insist 1.77 tons of enriched uranium and 500 shells of chemical and biological weapons weren't WMDs, now insist that phosphorus is a WMD.

Amazing.

Ah that old argument returns. The US MSM is not jumping on that one. Europe still has pockets of very Leftist press and politics, and these people are saying this. Those "WMD's" were well know and did not amount to new or "reconstituted" WMD's. Watch it. or you will sound as deluded or partisan as "Piss Helmet" Weldon.

Well, I am hopelessly deluded and partisan...

But, no, I can't honestly condone either viewpoint. Neither phosphorus nor twenty-year-old sarin is going to reliably kill many more people than a similar amount of normal explosive.

It does remain an interesting comparision, and one that shows quickly goalposts can move.
