    I know these are only allegations, but whatever happened to the New Labour pledge of a "foreign policy [that] must have an ethical dimension"?

    46 nations push for cluster bomb treaty

    ...but not the U.S.

    Yahoo news

    We don't just vote against the treaty...we don't even attend the conference. Nice.

    Princess Diana died, at which point there was nobody left to make an issue of it and have instant public support.

    Robin Cook died too, and it was he who made that rather odd pledge.

    We the U.S. are allways setting the wrong example for the world. Russia and China are communist so we cant expect anything from them but nothing new here. The big 3 love their weapon systems.

    How can we sell them if we ban them? The US is the largest provider of military weapons in the world. We love foreign civil wars. We can sell to both sides - ask the Indonesians.

    No kidding. It's always right for the US to invade other countries, yet when other countries have some type of military uprising, it's wrong. The US has some type of manifest destiny.
