For your Info: Can White Phosphorus be a Chemical Weapon?

WP, Willy Pete, White Phosphorus can be considered a banned chemical weapon when used against humans or animals.

Here is the sidebar for this video. The images in the video are from Fallujah, where the US Army admitted, in an indirect way, that they employed it against Resistance fighters:

Can WP be a chemical weapon? You bet it can. It all depends on how it is used.

So what if some countries haven't signed the treaties. It doesn't make it any less barbaric and depraved.

These pictures are from Falluja.
It took ages for the Pentagon to admit they used it and only because bloggers caught them out.

Talking: Peter Kaiser. Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

WP does not do damage by "caustic or toxic" properties. It either burns you or it does not.

Even Peter Kaiser backed down:
However, Peter Kaiser, a spokesman for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which enforces the convention, said the convention permitted the use of such weapons for 'military purposes not connected with the use of chemical weapons and not dependent on the use of the toxic properties of chemicals as a method of warfare'. He said the burns caused by WP were thermic rather than chemical and as such not prohibited by the treaty."
