The continued story of white phosphorus

I'm currently involved in a (no doubt ultimately futile) Wikiwar on the WP issue. Neil Macdonald's piece on CBC last night was particularly misinformed, I thought.

I always saw the serious issue with Fallujah as being the numerous reports of refusals to let civilians leave during the sieges, no doubt trapping many non-combatants within. Whether their lives were threatened with bullets, high explosive or WP really seems a secondary issue.
