A 100 million little bombs
My web connection came and went all weekend at home, so several blogs I planned never made it here.
Thanks to SF Hansen for reminding me of one I wanted to write.
While the rest of the world has endorsed a humane ban on cluster bombs, the United States, along with a well-respected, shall we say "cluster" of populous and powerful countries like China, India, Pakistan and Russia, dismissed the treaty, and did not sign because they claim that cluster bombs have strategic military value.
Like blowing the limbs off innocent children years after a war has been fought.
Consider these little leftovers souvenirs of cruelty.
Buddy Miller wrote a great song on the topic that you can hear, here.
