92 nations sign cluster-bomb ban; US, Russia don


news.yahoo.com

OSLO, Norway – An Afghan teenager who lost both legs in a cluster bomb explosion helped persuade his country to change its stance and join nearly 100 nations in signing a treaty Wednesday banning the disputed weapons.

Afghanistan was initially reluctant to join the pact — which the United States and Russia have refused to support — but agreed to after lobbying by victims maimed by cluster munitions, including 17-year-old Soraj Ghulan Habib. The teen, who uses a wheelchair, met with his country's ambassador to Norway, Jawed Ludin, at a two-day signing conference in Oslo.

Well one can observe how the world is turning. While many nations ahve signed a pact for "neutrality" one big question is why US and Russia havent. When (if we treat America like a personality) one has agendas that dont coincide with a pact or opinion or ideal then one refuses to commit. This shows one example of many of the reality of the situation. is this news being covered by the Mass Media. The answer is no. The same can be said on the otherside of the planet. Russia obviously has no intention in signing such pact because away from the agenda. The people can stop this actions from Russia and America. Its a governmetn for the people and by the people. We have a say in this situation aswell.

Sorry to say but this treaty is a Joke. What is the use of this treaty when the biggest producers of this type of bomb does not sign it.

Why sign a treaty to ban cluster bomb?......... Why not put forward a treaty to ban Bombs altogether?
