Thread Name: BS: Caliphate
Subject: RE: BS: Caliphate
"They are not an illegal weapon, but it is illegal to use any weapons on civilians."
Which was pointed out to you at the very beginning
To most human beings (find and ask one) the legality of such weapons in no way detracts from the fact that they are inhuman
"Flechettes are just a new form of shrapnel."
Nuclear weapons are just a new form of hand grenades - you are still downgrading the effect of these weapons
Flechettes are missiles deliberately designed to scatter dart-shaped, streamlined fragments into any human being who comes in their path - they have no function other than that - they are anti-personnel weapons
Fact
They were used indiscriminately in built-up areas making their use a war-crime
Fact
This has been pointed out by independents observers, including the Israeli B'Tsalem
Fact
Describing them as merely another form of shrapnel is to support their use - ie to support a war crime
Fact
"I have never defended the use of any weapons being used against civilians,"
You have supported the use of flecchettes by denying their use and by minimising their effect, as you are still doing.
Fact
I ask again WHY ARE YOU SUPPORTING THE USE OF THESE OBSCENITIES ON HUMAN BEINGS AND ATTEMPTING TO UNDERMINE THEIR EFFECT AND THE DFACT THAT THEY HAVE BEEN USED WHEN THE ISRAELIS HAVE MADE NO SUCH CLAIM - ARE YOU ON THEIR PAYROLL OR IS IT JUST A LITTLE HOBBY OF YOURS?
"So, where is it Jim?"
I have presented your having supported the use of this shit
I have presented your having supported white phosphorus
I have presented your having supported selling weapons, ammunition and riot control equipment to Assad (and your actually proposing he be sold more)
I have presented your having supported selling him chemicals which were capable of being turned into weapons
I have presented your supporting the sale of weapons to terrorist states
I have presented your supporting the use of chemicals on Bedouins in order to drive them off their land
And much, much more - in some cases several times over.
Where is what exactly?
Juicy Brucie:
What is the point of your link other than to reiterate their ineffectual and the incompetence of those using them?
Israel has just slaughtered around 2000 human beings in the name of 'defence' from these missiles - massive overkill in anybody's book, even if the 2000 were all fighters - they were not of course - the vast majority of the dead were non combatants, a large percentage of those being children.
Whose side are you on here - make up yur mind Weirdy Beardie!
