Napalm On Kids!

Bashir al-Assad seems determined to cock a snoot at international condemnation of his use of sarin gas against a rebel-held area of Damascus. Yesterday, while MPs were debating whether to unleash PM David Cameron on Syria - they decided not to -, a BBC Panorama team filmed the terrible aftermath of a Syrian fighter jet dropping an incendiary bomb on a school playground in the north of the country. Napalm sticks like glue to human skin and inflicts an agonising death. The attack left scores of children with burns over their bodies (CLICK for grisly video). "International law does not prohibit the use of napalm or other incendiaries against military targets, but use against civilian populations was banned by the United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) in 1980" (CLICK). So, another war crime committed by Bashir's brutes, this one unequivocal. (Note: the Vietnam War ended in 1975.)
