That also was not napalm. That was Fugas. We had already pushed fire lines with dozers to control the burn. This was simply one of many that was conducted in this palm grove. I should upload images of the village itself, those images are much more powerful, and depict the hate the insurgents had for this village. The Iraqi people should be ashamed of their sectarian violence.

That Palm Grove was heavily boobie-trapped and contained several large weapon caches and insurgent hide sites. The farmers were not able to work the grove due to the danger of boobie-traps and insurgent activity. After the intial burst of flame, the fire died down quickly. The palms, being cleared of the thick undergrowth from years of neglect, produced a bumper crop of dates for the village of Naqib the following season. The houses in the village were also boobie trapped and the villagers doslocated as the insurgents used the town as a base of operations. When this clearing operation ended the villagers returned home and rebuilt their lives around this palm grove. I have many fond memories of the peole of Naqib and wish them peace and prosperity.
