Isn't white phosphorus outlawed by the Geneva Conventions? (I know, I know: it's a "quaint notion".)

American ISIS cares not for the geneva suggestions. In fact there's not a whole lot of respect for the GC in this universe. I mean shit, wearing civilian garb during military operations and disguising yourself as a member of an opposing military are outlawed and I think everyone's done that in this comic at least twice lmao.

how do you deploy that stuff? cluster munitions?

I mean, using a .50 M2 as a "sniper rifle" has been regarded as excessive and inhumane. In a fight to the death I don't see how WP is unusually awful but yes if you use it and then lose expect that you and everyone you care about will die slowly and horribly.

I wish there were models for these artillery pieces so I could've shown it being used, but this is what's happening about ~3/4ths of a mile away from the bridge.

I also adore the 'inhibits enemy vision' comment the narrator makes in this video. In the comments there's a fella who sums it up perfectly. "I imagine they won't be seeing much after being burnt at 5000°F"

WP has been one of those weird things my teenage brain fixated on when I first learned about it. What gets me about it is the fact that it's not really discouraged from being used in any meaningful way. The Geneva Convention says it's not allowed for use, but we still maintain stocks of it and we're seeing it being used in Ukraine (Azovstal saw a WP attack during the siege, and recently a civilian apartment complex was targeted by what appeared to be WP), which means it's still being used -and used pretty frequently at that. I think it was the scene in that game Spec Ops: The Line that got me thinking about it. It's absolutely horrifying to think that something so goddamn awful is still used today to kill people the world over.

Betcha it comes back as a killstreak in the new Modern Warfare.
