Yes you have - you made the point that they were "legal" after it had been pointed out to you that they had been used in built-up areas.
The obscene fact that they are legal in some circumstances has never been in question.

I was correct then Jim.
They are not an illegal weapon, but it is illegal to use any weapons on civilians.

Your declaring they were, coupled with your comparing them to early nineteenth century
That is when shrapnel shells were first used.
Flechettes are just a new form of shrapnel.

or were the result of Hamas 'friendly fire'
That was a reference to "nail shrapnel" reported in your link.
Nails are not used as shrapnel in commercially produced munitions, but Hamas have used them.

I have never defended the use of any weapons being used against civilians, nor the use of any illegal weapons at all.

No Keith - you say this shit - I cut and paste exactly what you say for you to deny

So, where is it Jim?
