    No they are not. You don't know what you are talking about. The UN doesn't even have any authority to "ban" any weapons. Only international treaties do so. Napalm and White Phosphorus are not banned.

    White phosphorus - JMCC.org

    Article two, protocol III of the 1980 UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons states: "It is prohibited in all circumstances to make the civilian population as such, individual civilians or civilian objects, the object of attack by incendiary weapons."

    Lets all remember that they killed each other by the millions with gas, bullets, bio weapons, for years and the USA did nothing.

    1914-1917

    1937 - 1941

    then we got stupid and involved in 1917, in 1941 our hand was forced........and the rest of them are REALLY stupid.........grenada REALLY? WHY?

    You should have made this poll public so we could see how many libs go against their messiah.

The U.N is largely a political dog and pony show and is not effective. What I am talking about is a coalition of countries that has one simple objective, no tolerance of aggression from any country/group. NO politics involved they simply retaliate against anyone who starts conflict. If the world knew that whomever fired the proverbial first shot would be met by immediate and definite retaliation (no exceptions) and their leaders killed or put on trial by perhaps the largest military force on the planet it would probably go a long way to ending wars.
    And when that aggressor is China (Taiwan) or Russia then what? Nuclear war? What if an ally like Israel? There's politics behind every military action.

    It is... but most Demokrats have avoided the vote. Perhaps we should PM them a personal invitation.

    But alas... they have voted... they've chosen one of Obama's favorites:

    10. Present...
    9. not present...
    8. out to lunch... don't tell Michelle...
    7. Don't bother me I'm playing cards with Reggie...
    6. Hey where's the March Madness selections...
    5. Where's my teleprompter... I don't leave home without it...
    4. Got a pick up game to go to... see ya...
    3. It's beneath me to answer that...
    2. It's Bush's fault...

    and Number 1... (drum roll)

    1. ugh... ugh... ugh... that's above my pay grade.

    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Considering we're the only country on the planet to use nuclear weapons against hundreds of thousands of human beings, I don't see how we have any room to talk.

    It ended a war, and fewer people died than what was happening beforehand. Though no picnic it prevented greater loss of life... and was a good warning about the power of such weapons.

    America has a lot of room to talk. We could have dominated the world... instead we helped lift those we vanquished. The world is lucky to have had such a benevolent and generous Super Power.
