Why does the USA withhold the right to use cluster bombs, which are banned in the civilised world?
Across much of the world the use of cluster bombs is illegal and considered immoral. However Libya and the USA are exceptions - both have refused to ban their use. In Europe their use is considered to be a grave war crime. Why has the USA refused to ban cluster bombs? Why does it insist on keeping such bad company?
Because the USA, with all due respect to all Americans, hates to be told what to do. However, a war crime is a war crime, outside America, so I wonder where they might use them?
that should tell you how really uncivilized the U S Government really is
Because the company that manufactures cluster bombs has one of the largest lobbies in DC. They also contribute a lot of money toward political campaigns.
Because anything the US does is right - get with the program! lol
Who's going to stop us? I say 'us' because I'm an American but I agree with you. Our government...sometimes, I really wonder what the hell is going on with these wackos.

I understand that our girl, one of our favorite hubbers was banned yesterday. She was not told why she was banned. Today is her birthday and she cannot post on the forums because of this ban. Does anyone knows why she was banned?
