White Phosphorous Bombs Gaza 2009

Photos of white phosphorous bombs. Look quite nice from a distance - a bit like a jellyfish. They're regulated by international humanitarian law but in this case used by the Israeli army over a UN school where civilians were seeking refuge and in the same week over a crowded Palestinian refugee camp.

Worth a google for the effects if someone's hit, but I didn't post in case people had just eaten.

Why does an image of an animal in distress(the oil pic) upset me more than some of the other pictures of dead or dying people?

I hope I am not the only one.

The accepted lethal dose when white phosphorus is ingested orally is 1 mg per kg of body weight, although the ingestion of as little as 15 mg has resulted in death. It may also cause liver, heart or kidney damage. There are reports of individuals with a history of oral ingestion who have passed phosphorus-laden stool ("smoking stool syndrome")

Jesus!

The South Armagh Sniper is the generic name[1] given to the members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army's South Armagh Brigade who conducted a sniping campaign against British security forces from 1990 to 1997.

The campaign is most notable for the snipers' use of .50 BMG calibre Barrett M82 and M90 long-range rifles in some of the shootings.

Pretty sure that's the one. Piers Morgan had to resign, think he's doing alright now though!
