US, china & russia ♥ cluster bombs

US, china & russia ♥ cluster bombsfrom washington post: Forty-six countries agreed Friday to push for a global treaty banning cluster bombs, a move activists hope will force the superpowers that oppose the effort - the U.S., China and Russia - to abandon the weapons...

Of the 49 countries attending the Oslo conference, only three - Japan, Poland and Romania - rejected the declaration calling for a treaty by next year. Some key arms makers - including the U.S., Russia, Israel and China - snubbed the conference.
