Cluster Bombs in Lebonon>1=8404

Why would an area denial weapon like cluster bombs be used against a foe like Hezbolah?  I am at a loss to understand this action.  This weapon will kill more civilians than anyone else.  It is not made to take out specific as in individual targets.  It also bothers me that this weapon might have been used in violation of agreements with the U.S.  America does not need this kind of trouble. 

The file says that twenty five percent of the bomblets do not go off.  They are left to explode later.  That makes a fine mess.
