A Day to Celebrate

Today marks the beginning of the ban on production, storage and use of cluster bombs.  107 countries have signed on to the ban.   America, naturally, hasn't but it has promised to restrict the use of cluster bombs and their export.

Today is also the day that the Dutch cease their military role in Afghanistan and begin packing up to go home.   Most of the Dutch force is expected to be back in the Netherlands by September.
