Not to mention that you'd need to pry the recipie from Araby's cold, dead hands - and then decode it from a cipher that includes a number Europe hadn't even conceived of at the time (zero). Best of luck. Hope the resistance dies well, since it'll be futile.
I guess you didn't get the memo about the hand-held "flame-throwers" or the fact that the Araby version was one of a handful of different, yet similarly effective formulas in use? Tsk, tsk, they give us Google, and we forget to use it
Seriously though, Knives, the point is that any highly flammable substance would quickly get put to use against Vampires, whether Greek fire, alcohol, or even whale oil - the point being to get the flammable substance on the vampires so that they burn. C'mon, if mankind can resist Skynet and its mechanical army (Terminator reference), vampires aren't going to take us out. Humans are nothing if not ingenious, especially when their survival is on the line.
