Subject: Bring it back

Bring it back, but mix it with other ingredients. make a mix of napalm and the substances used in FAE bombs. Bring it back in large quantities. make afghanistan even more baren than it already is. burn them all, makem look like really crispy bacon.

Subject: small bomblets are much more effectice in sandy conditions

and FAEs / airburst ordinance in very rocky conditions and GP bombs against unreinforced structures / bunkers. Naplam IS obsolete. Sorry to disappoint guys.

Subject: To Napalm, or not to Napalm

Abo****ely, right in middle of the Capitol of Afghanistan, where their Gov't is. Then, drop a lot of leaflets, stating that if the Terrorists aren't turned over to us, that will just be the beginning.

Subject: Nape and scrape!!!

I'm sure that the dies and welding patterns for the old Mk-77 (Napalm Canister for the slower speed airframes like the AV-8 and A-6) are still available. To tell you the truth, I prefer bomblets or Mk-83s with 96" daisy cutters. BLU-83 with Daisy cutters would be standard now! Bad thing about loading Nape in Afghanistan will be the expansion of 'Incinagel' (as Nape was called around '82 when I got out of the Corps). Sh@t is dangerous to the loaders and the aircraft once the daytime temp hits the 95 F degree mark.

How about Iron bombs raining from several flights of B-52s, B-1B and night raids by B-2 and Stealth Fighters? The larger aircraft can utilize Mk-84 and a few 10,000 lb HEs, there are a few in the inventory for dropping from C-130s and up. Keep carpet bombing until the Talaban give up Bin Laden and his henchmen! Don't stop bombing and firing off Tomahawks until he and they are in our hands alive and positively ID'd. Then bring them to the US and try them in three courts.

It's war right -Trial 1) Military tribunal for attacks on civilians. Trial 2) Islamic court governed by Immams from the US held strictly to Koran's legal precidence and Trial 3) Civilian Criminal court. Allow a single appeal to the ruling leader of the nation in with the trial takes place (In the US that's George Bush) as allowed for in Islamic Law and then chop their heads off in accordance with Bin Laden's own laws!

If they Taliban refuses to give him up or another attack happens in US or with our allies in this antiterrorism cause, NUKE'm.

Enough is bloody well enough!

Sadly you are right, but you got to admit that Napalm is a crowd pleaser. It would look good on CNN from Downtown Kabul. cluster bombs work well in mountainous regions. they explode in the contour of the landscape. I still say use the napalm, it is a tool for demmoralizing the people that harbor the terrorists.

Subject: Burn, baby, burn

Nape will make us a nice, new glass parking lot. Let's cook 'em as they have earned it with the remarks they've made in the past 24 hours. Saying that if we attack them, they will exact revenge?! Bull****! We have put up with this crap as long as I can remember. First they kidnap our nationals overseas. Then they kill our servicemen and women overseas. Now, they bring it to the USA and think they'll get away with it. Wrong.

Lt., I'd have to agree! Napalm has a nice gassy smell to it.
While some would disagree, I wonder if Osama would like that or a nice M14 granade dropped in his drawers? It would make him less than halfcocked!

Subject: Napalm on Mountains, Great weapons!

Napalm will suck up all oxygen from the caves they hide in. If Napalm saves lives, I say bring it back in only on Mountain hide-away sites. Not on open view sites. This is a barron country so we should use it only where we know where the caves are. Has no effect on open desert, but hiding in a cave, great results since it takes oxygen away for the flames to burn. Hope they dont have oxygen tanks.

Subject: napalm not effective

The other response that napalm is dangerous to its handlers and deliverers in that heat is quite correct - so it should only be used at night. I am very concerned about the expense of some of the weaponry the US might use. These ragheads don't deserve that much to be spent on them. I say just lob a few of the older nukes on Afghanistan and Pakistan and tell the rest of the world that from now on, anyone who attacks or supports attacks on the US will get it too.

Or better yet, use bio weapons so you can still use the resources of the area once those bastards are dead.

Subject: The thing about Nukes

Nuclear weapons are not, and I pray that they will never be used again in war. The radiation will float hundreds of miles and get into water supply, wildlife, our crops and ect..., I have seen these affects in Norway after the Nuclear Plant in Russia had that melt down. The Norweigians eat Mule Deer as their primary cattle. I had the ( ) for at least 3 months after I left their. I was not the only one. The funny thing is that we were all their in Norway before Russia ever had that melt down. Napalm is effective to take away oxygen from the caves. Also, the US goverment will not use any Nuclear, Biological or Chemical warfare UNLESS it is used on us first then we will retaliate with the same.

Subject: Yes!

All napalm, in it's most primitive albeit effective form, is 3 parts diesel fuel oil to one part kerosene. The only reason we use the sucky napalm recipe described earlier is that in 1940, the U.S. army was looking for a safe flamethrower fuel recipe.
If my recipe were used-the Germans used it to great effect in WWII on the Eastern Front-if the plane carrying it was hit, it would burn rather than explode, This would give time for the pilot and crew to eject safely.
The most effective use of napalm is to carpet bomb the area with Fuel air explosives to create alot of kindling. When they come out of their bunkers afterwards, THEN drop the napalm. PRESTO! Instant Dresden.
And remember, kiddies: more people were killed at Dresden than at Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined!

Subject: Napalm

Napaplam to dangerous to use or build up in the daytime? That's funny it didn't bother the Marine ordnance people in Yuma in the seventies! I was there watching them build up and service the canisters.
Then I launched the aircraft that dropped the canisters on the rang west of Yuma.
Maybe you had a different mixture!

Subject: Nape, scrape and redecorate!

Yes boys and girls, napalm, the newest old weapon on the block. Drop some over a terrorist infected nation and Presto! No more terrorists! It cooks, it bakes and turns those nasty terrorists into nice crispy shells of their former selves.
COULDN'T HAPPEN TO A NICER BUNCH OF A-HOLES! As the subject says, let's nape, scrape and redecorate!

What about using our FUEL/AIR Bomb? Would be a good item for the rough terrain in Afaganistan. Suck folks right out of their holes! Can two of them be carried in a C-5?

The smell, that gasoline smell, smells like VICTORY!!! But if we do have to enter caves, we need our old flamethrowers!!!!! It's very effective in a dark cave.
