I was never a big fan of the war in Afghanistan, because of things like clusterbombs- the sprinkling of hundreds and thousands of tiny explosives over vast areas. Little balls waiting for children to play with.

Apparently the US and Russia both feel that clusterbombing is an essential part of our strategerie going forward.

“The group Handicap International says 98 percent of cluster-bomb victims are civilians, and 27 percent are children.”

We won’t sign the ban. I’d say we look like heartless scum to the rest of the world….again.
