Generals love the smell of napalm in the morning
The United States has reportedly been using napalm in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In August 03 the Pentagon stopped denying the charge, admitting it did use “Mark 77 firebombs”.
“We napalmed both those [bridge] approaches,” said Colonel James Alles, commander of Marine Air Group 11. “Unfortunately there were people there … you could see them in the [cockpit] video. They were Iraqi soldiers. It’s no great way to die. The generals love napalm. It has a big psychological effect.”
Yeah, napalm does have a “big psychological effect”. It makes anyone near where it was dropped want to pick up a gun and shoot those who dropped it.
