Yeah us and Israel...
familiar with the highway of death?
maybe we should have fixed bayonets?
Good, we have no reason to suspend or stop using or producing them.
All the killed and maimed Palestinian children?
Lots of unexploded munitions got found by children...
War is hell. I see no reason to give up a very effective weapon cause the people that started the war are hurt by the weapon. But then that is just me.
Yes... the children of the guy who happened to live in the same country as the target started the war...
Or his grandchildren. The biggest thing about Cluster Munitions is that they leave behind tons of unexploded ordinance, and they can last for decades. These things still turn up and kill people in Laos for godsakes.
Now all of this is pretty extreme in this day and age, but of course, anything for the Power and Glory of the Empire! The blood of their children for decades to come will teach them to Fear.
For God, King and Country!
To damn bad. You are aware that the munitions used in the Vietnam war are not the same as what are used now, RIGHT?
By the way, regular bombs kill too and can last just as long as cluster munitions. They still occasionally find live ordnance from WW2 in places like Okinawa and London. Shall we just ban all bombs?
My personal opinion is keep cluster munitions and return to using Napalm as well. Anyone that thinks war is clean and neat is a nut job. Same with land mines, we never signed that treaty either and continue to use them. They are effective.
