Cambodia in clasp of cluster bombs

Published: Aug. 02, 2010 – Al Jazeera

At least 26 million cluster bombs were dropped on Cambodia by the United States during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s.

And decades after the bombs stopped falling, millions of undetonated bombs lying in fields across the country continue to maim thousands of people who are unfortunate enough to step on them.

. 

However, the Cambodian government has yet to agree to a global treaty on cluster munitions, which came into force on Monday.

The convention mandates signatory countries to find and clear their land of all the bomblets.

Al Jazeera Stephanie Scawen reports from the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, on why the government has not signed the treaty to clear their land of the mines.

    I hold arch-Yid, sexual deviant, Tribal member Shit-bag, Henry Kissenger, directly responsible for this slaughter and maiming of rice farmers, women and children, and there pets and water buffalo. He will burn in the Lake of Fire which will never be quenched. He has been a top priest in the synagogue of Satan since he was born. He is as evil as Stalin. He is certainly on the list of Zionists that will live over 300 years (alien Satanic technology), see how he keeps coming back to sprew his evil death, torture, and maiming routine on peasants and children? He is determined to do this forever, but we know he only has the Lake of Fire waiting for him. His time is short, just like his master’s!
