WP is a poor anti-personel weapon. A round will go off and light up the whole world, but it doesn't blow stuff up or do any real damage.

Yeah, white phosphorus burns like hell, smells like nothing you have ever smelled in your life and makes for some real bad dreams for the enemy.

It doesn't KILL efficiently enough to use aside from its intended purpose, lighting things up.

Ask yourself this, we are discussing the vagueries of different incediaries here, what do you suppose openning up a container of glow-in-the-dark, radioactive material would result in?

In say ... downtown Manhattan?

Or L.A.?

Let's say we wrap that container with 3 pounds of plastique. BOOM.

Is it preferable to die a slow, cancerous death and know your children will suffer the fate ... or be burnt to a crisp instantaneously?

I thought so.
