US Bid To Overturn
Ban On Cluster Bombs
Britain is backing a US-led plan to torpedo the global ban on cluster bombs, in what MPs and arms campaigners fear is an attempt to legitimise the use of weapons that are widely deemed to be inherently indiscriminate.
Why this is especially evil is that the United States, during Afghanistan, made the cluster bomb sub-munitions with the same color and type face as the emergency food packets being air dropped on towns. So kids who could not read English picked up the cluster bomb sub-munitions thinking they were food and blew their hands off.
