Another story that the mainstream media has hardly covered: the good old USA has admitted to using gruesome napalm-like bombs in Iraq.

Sure, they call them "Mark 77 firebombs" but they are incendiary devices that look and function "remarkably similar" to napalm weapons.

In case you've forgotten, in 1980 the UN banned the use of napalm against civilians - after those pictures of a naked girl victim fleeing in Vietnam shocked the world.

America, which didn't ratify the treaty, is the only country in the world still using the weapon.

So first we find out that the US forces in Iraq used depleted uranium (DU) and now the son of napalm.

Does this come to a shock to you? It should. Do you find it hard to believe?

Don't take our word for it. Here are some links to news articles from :
