US military deployment in many countries is one reason the national debt is out of control.

War Crime: U.S.-Funded Kiev Cluster Bombs Lugansk June 5th, 2014

Kiev Cluster Bombs Lugansk June 5th, 2014

by Stephen Lendman

They’re terror weapons. They scatter submunition bomblets over a wide area.

As of September 2013, 108 nations became CCM signatories. Eighty-four ratified it.

Those doing so pledge “never under any circumstances to:

“Use cluster munitions;

Develop, produce, otherwise acquire, stockpile, retain or transfer to anyone, directly or indirectly, cluster munitions; (and)

Assist, encourage or induce anyone to engage in any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Convention.”
CCM provisions permit certain types of submunitions use. Provided they don’t indiscriminately scatter unexploded ordnance the way cluster bombs do.

They remain dangerous longterm. They’re brightly colored. Children mistake them for toys or Easter eggs.

They pick them up for play. They’re killed or injured doing so.
