Napalm Death for Uncle Sam's GI Joe's in Iraq

A piece in this week's US News & World Report reports that GI Joe's killing for Empire in Iraq are dying in a more frightening and bloody way since the resistance there has begun using "a primative form of Napalm" - a weapon originally designed by Dow Chemical and used by Uncle Sam to murder people - in their IEDs.

The piece notes:
Even if soldiers escape the shrapnel of the artillery shell, the ensuing fire can cause serious burns. The complexity of the napalm bombs lies not it their manufacture but in their after-effects. Not only do they burn; they also grab attention for the insurgency.
Unfortunately for the GI Joe's, nobody's paying attention. 'Just a few ordinary lives,' the Masters of War say.
