Cluster bombs as tools of murder, defended today by the US, UK in geneva

Originally published 11/7/06:

At a review of the Conventional Weapons Treaty today in Geneva, the US and UK buddied up to insure that civilians keep getting killed with cluster bombs.  Cluster bombs have killed 100,000 people, 98,000 of whom are civilians.  Here is a case report of how these little buggers keep on killing: 

“Among the case histories in the report is that of a family in Kosovo who went to swim in a lake a few kilometres from their village. One of the children, a six-year-old called Adnan, found a metal can on the bank and showed it to his family. It exploded. His father and older brother were killed and Adnan was gravely wounded. His sister later returned to the lake to collect the family’s belongings, stepped on another Nato cluster bomb and was killed.”
