Surgical Strikes

Surgical strikes, like a sawed-off shotgun blast in a crowded room.

(Note: The photo shows Israeli forces dropping white phosphorus shells, which “can cause horrific burns but is not illegal if used as a smokescreen.”)

White phosphorus is legal as a smokescreen source in limited amounts in a controlled ground burn- but as used here a sustantial airburst showers people below with elemental phosphorus, burning flesh, and producing concentrated phosphoric acid as a by-product with water. Which also burns flesh.

Certainly that should sound familiar. After all, white phosphorus is what we used to sterilize Fallujah.

With predictable results:

Apparently the medics are also pulling depleted uranium out of the civilian casualties as well [tip o'teh tinfoil to Peter of Lone Tree and the Dark Wraith].

Now that will certainly buck any deflationary trend!
