Bored Horde: Can anyone explain to me how thermobaric devices are any more barbaric then conventional explosive devices? I mean given that the US of A and Israel have both thrown around wooly peter and cluster bombs like so much confetti, what are the Syrians doing that is uniquely evil?
madgonad: spelletrader: Oh we had some FAE bombs in Vietnam that were used to clear foliage that would also excel in an anti-personnel role, but that would cause "unnecessary suffering of individuals".Daisy cutters aren't thermobaric. They are just really large conventional explosive deployed by transport plane and guided/retarded by a parachute.However, the American scientist that invented them about 20 years ago was born in Vietnam./they are a terrible weapon with legitimate military uses (like mines)//but using them on a civilian target is just farking evil
