Is White Phosphorus a chemical weapon?

There are strong denials from certain quarters concerning WP …But then again there would be. In recent history only the US and Israel have used it in Iraq and Gaza respectively. Surprisingly (not) both these countries claim that WP isn’t categorised as a chemical weapon because it is used to ‘illuminate’ an area rather than burn the skin off it’s victims. The injuries caused by WP are absolutely horrendous and can often lead to a long slow painful death. The US and Israel should both ban it’s use before preaching to the rest of the world.

Whilst on the subject of Israel, it should be noted that many of the critical evidence used to take America to war has been provided by Israel. Their so called evidence only ever supports what they think would be the best result for them in any given conflict or dispute.
