Cluster Bombs Banned (Don't Get Too Excited)

Countries Agree To Cluster Bomb Ban- CNN

More than 100 countries attending a conference in Dublin, Ireland formally
adopted a treaty Friday to ban cluster bombs -- a large, unreliable and
inaccurate weapon that often affects civilians long after the end of armed

Yay! 111 Countries signed this treaty. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, the ones that count didn't. The United States, China, Russia, and Israel were notably absent from this treaty. This is like the NBA saying the Lakers score too much therefore Vladimir Ramanovic can't shoot. Meanwhile, Kobe is killing the other team. For all you non sports fan, this is like Big's marriage to Natasha. Carrie is the one that counts!
