According to the NGO, between 95 and 98 percent of such munitions are neither reliable nor accurate, with anywhere from 10-40 percent of the so-called submunitions scattered by the mother bomb failing to explode, the ICRC said.and
According to Handicap International, the Israelis used four million cluster bombs, of which up to 1.6 million failed to explode.Four million cluster bombs? Million with a M. I find that very difficult to believe. Since a 500 pound bomb is about the smallest cluster bomb made, that would mean Israel dropped close to 2,000,000,000.00 pounds of munitions on Lebanon. Even if Handicap International meant to say pounds, that's still 8000 bombs, quite a bit for F-16s to carry at 16 per sortee.
Is this a clerical error, yet another example of civilians talking out their ass about weapons they don't understand or is it another NGO carrying water for the enemies of Israel?
