Cluster bombing civilians okay--US Senate

Our House of Lords voted down an amendment which would "stop the Pentagon from using cluster bombs near civilian targets and to cut off sales unless purchasers abide by the same rules." The amendment was proposed by Senators Feinstein (D-CA) and Leahy (D-VT), but was voted down by the Repug majority, including Senators and presidential wannabes Bayh, Biden, Clinton, and Lieberman. To their great credit, both of Michigan's senators supported the amendment. (Roll call)

What a disgusting country this is.
