US lied to Britain over use of napalm in Iraq war

Action and Reaction
    Two points that interconnect?     What is the action that is starting to be taken in regards to our lying to them about MK77 firebombs.   How are the memos going to affect this newest development in the complicity of Britain with regards to possible illegal activity by our highest officials?   Bush lied to us, the world and Britain.   As has been pointed out, it is no big news to most of the world that he lied.   It's just that now we have the information to prove it.

    I have read little but the current firestorm of information about the DSM with regards to the attention is was getting.   The Conyers Hearing catapulted the issue into the Main Stream Media and now it has reached critical mass and not an issue in waiting any longer.   Googling Downing Street Memo now takes you to page after page of national and international links as well as the primary base of information in the blogs.

    New questions will start to be asked due to the revelation of our lying to Britain and the world over our use of illegal weapons (to the rest of the civilized world they are illegal, anyway --- napalm - oh... it is ok to use it if they have military uniforms which it can stick to and burn them to death...).   Weapons which were outlawed through the ratification by Britain of the 1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW), which the United States did not.   The British Paraliment may seek accountability regarding the use of the weapons against civilians, which is stipulated by the Convention as compared to their previously authorized use against military targets.

    As noted in the article in The Independant uk, The Iraq Analysis Group, which opposed the war at the start, reacted with this statement: "The US has used internationally reviled weapons that the UK refuses to use, and has then apparently lied to UK officials, showing how little weight the UK carries in influencing American policy."   Ouch!!!  

It will be interesting to see how the chain of events unfold in the short term for both our countries due to these new dynamic developments...   - fc

The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
