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.

The extreme right seems to like to control the conversation in forums all over the web. the temper tantrums and insane, off topic ranting is out of control here. If it happens again at hub pages, I will deal with it outside of Hub pages. My goal is to counter the extremist propaganda and to...

Do USA citizens know more about Slovenia now that Trump is a president?And why? And why do you think Slovenian politicians are proud of Melania now? Why weren't they before? What exactly did she do or will she do now when she is the first lady? I must admit I am surprised with this phenomena. But...

I have had comments from someone named badgirl who has referred to being banned. I try not to be a gossip monger, but she has me curious. Does anyone have any scoop on this?
