    Its no damned wonder we havent won a war since WWII with politically correct asses like this deciding US war policy.

    Treaty backers predict no U.S. cluster bomb use

    "The country that thinks of using cluster munitions next week should think twice, because it would look very bad," said Espen Barth Eide, deputy defense minister of Norway, which will host a treaty-signing ceremony Dec. 3.

    It would look very bad?! Islamofascists are still beheading our people with impunity and we are supposed to be afraid of looking bad if we use cluster bombs???

    Holy Christ on a crutch, how did we get so fucked up? :mad:

    Its only DD minister of Norway and they don't even have a real Army ,if he thinks it will look very bad tell him to join the troops the next time some Arabs are setting IED off all over the place !

    Stick his silly liberal ass in some Humvee riding the backroads of Iraq and ask him if he is nervous ?Ask him if he prefers carpet bombing as opposed to clusters ?Tell him that we could use Cluster/MOAB's if he keeps up with this crap or a very large Fuel/Air devices work as well !

    Cluster bombs rawk, but they can leave unexploded parts that often affect civilians - many children.

    I don't know what use these have against terrorists who hide in populations, maybe on the Afghanistan/Pakistan mountain range, but not much else.

    Not really.Clusters are carried in a larger bomb body and are quite small compared to full size 2k pounders.

    They are released in mid air on the way down and fall in an random pattern either detonating at some pre-programmed altitude or on contact .

    Smart bombs are large dumb WW2 style iron bombs with an external guidance 'kit' strapped on from the nose to tail fins that guides the device from a infra-red sensor in the nose to the target .A chase plane or someone on the ground 'paints the target' with an 'IR' source !
