Editorial-1

 

Dangerously fanciful

Editorial-2

 

Blurred lines

ð  What the editorial is all about?

US Govt has decided to send cluster munitions to Ukraine. The editorial talks about this decision’s impact an war and moral turpitude related to it.

ð  About cluster munitions?

There bombs are designed to explode an impact, but many of it remains “divd” which can explode later. And there “dud” do heavy airlian damages.

Convention on cluster munitions says not to are it during war times as it causes large civilion causalities.

ð  Probable reason’s behind USA’s decisions Ukraine’s counter ofensiver against Russia started few weeks ago. Ukraine and its western allies were expecting that they will make swift move and recocuply areas under Russia control easily.

But it could not occur because of Russia’s strong defence. Ukraine only gained few areas of south eastern region even that an heavy cost. It was under this desperation that USA decided to bring cluster munitions

ð  Consequences

 

USA is doing nothing less than Russian war crimes and the morality ground seems to disappear.
