The U.S. have it and used it in Fallujah, Paul.

NATO and the US both acknowledge having it and using it but claim they do not use it as a weapon but to provide smoke screens etc.

When did NATO use it? I saw film of Israel using it in Gaza

Paul, would you be kind enough to explain something to me, please? NATO and Israel have both used white phosphorous, but how do you justify your comparatively positive view of NATO with your condemnation of Israel? It's the same weapon, so why does it make it not as bad when NATO uses it?
