News and Napalm  
"The generals love napalm. It has a big psychological effect." -- Colonel James Alles, commander of Marine Air Group 11

This story about napalm use in Iraq is fun, especially given the Petnagon claim that "We completed destruction of our last batch of napalm on 4 April, 2001." Apparently, somebody at the Pentagon decided that we aren't TECHNICALLY using napalm any more, since the Mark 77 firebombs (containing 63 gallons of jet fuel) are not uring the original 1942 formula.
