Cluster Bombs in Lebanon
 
Cluster Bombs in Lebanon

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/5299938.stm

The UN's humanitarian chief has accused Israel of "completely immoral" use of cluster bombs in Lebanon.

UN clearance experts had so far found 100,000 unexploded cluster bomblets at 359 separate sites, Jan Egeland said.

He went on to say...

"What's shocking and completely immoral is: 90% of the cluster bomb strikes occurred in the last 72 hours of the conflict, when we knew there would be a resolution," he said.

These bombs are lying in peoples homes and gardens and people are being injured or killed every day. Cluster bombs are not precise weapons. The fact that they were used in civilian areas is a war crime.

Apparently SEC believes that the mere exisitance of Israel is a war crime. You will thank Israel for the fine job that they did in Lebanon. Oh maybe not today, probably not even tomorrow but soon.

Using cluster bombs is not a war crime as this particular weapon is not identified as such in the Laws governing Warfare. But you already knew that. You are just stirring the pot again.
