WASHINGTON A defense official says the Pentagon is changing its policy on cluster bombs and plans to reduce the danger of unexploded munitions in the deadly explosives. The policy shift would require that after 2018, more than 99 percent of the bomblets in a cluster bomb must detonate. The defense official spoke yesterday on condition of anonymity because the policy has not yet been released publicly. Limiting the amount of live munitions left on the battlefield would lessen the danger to innocent civilians who have been killed or injured when they accidentally detonate the bombs.
Wow. Somebody has a soft side, huh? Where you been hiding it, Pentagon? This is one of the sweetest, kindest things I have ever heard. Don't ever say the Pentagon isn't about helping people.
