Cluster(bomb)fuck

Syria's alleged us cluster bombs getting a lot of condemnation, after respected group Human Rights Watch reports.   Sure to be ignored again by the media:  Long years of Israel's use of same.   Human Rights Watch report on just one locale, Lebanon, 2008, and the killing went on there from the weapons for years.  And many or most of them came from USA, of course.  Excerpt:
“Israel fired huge numbers of cluster bombs into Lebanon, leaving bomblets that have killed and maimed almost 200 people since the war ended,” said Steve Goose, director of the Arms division at Human Rights Watch. “Only a global treaty that bans cluster munitions will prevent such tragedies in the future.”
