The policy shift, which is outlined in a three-page memo signed by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, would require that after 2018, more than 99 percent of the bomblets in a cluster bomb must detonate.

I know this is way out there, fringe thinking even, so call the insane asylum if you must, but how about we spend money on, you know, our country? I know, I know, bombs are important too. Its like 1) Military Equipment 2) Breathing 3) TV on the priority list, but I think we could give it a chance.
