According to documentation from the US White House, America’s Defense Contractors will provide, as Zelensky ordered, 200,000 rounds of artillery Shells /month to the US Congress and $145 billion to the Ukraine State. (i.e.-Russia MOD uses 200,000 rounds each four days). Why would the Democratic Party controlled by the White House, the US Senate, and the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd J. Austin III, want to violate another treaty against the use of Cluster Bombs in a Conflict? A closer look is required. Did the US DOD use Cluster Bombs in other of its many Undeclared Wars?

What Treaties and Rational Voices are against?

“Article 1: Under the Convention on Cluster Munitions, cluster munitions are defined and prohibited as a category of weapons. The definition of a cluster munition under Article 2 is "a conventional munition that is designed to disperse or release explosive submunitions each weighing less than 20 kilograms, and includes those explosive submunitions." Therefore the ban on cluster munitions, and all relevant Convention obligations such as stockpile destruction, apply both to the container and the submunitions it contains. Sometimes explosive submunitions are not held within a container but are released or dispersed by dispensers fixed to aircraft. The convention explicitly mentions that these weapons, known as explosive bomblets, are included under the ban.”

“Article 2: also defines what is not considered a cluster munition. Articles 2(2)(a) and 2(2)(b) exclude a munition or submunition designed to dispense flares, smoke, pyrotechnics, or chaff, or designed to produce electrical or electronic effects. The definition also excludes "a munition designed exclusively for an air defense role," meaning a munition that can only be used against targets in the air. Weapons that are designed to have utility against both aerial and ground-based targets are banned. In addition, Article 1(3) states that the convention does not apply to mines, meaning it does not ban munitions that disperse one or more mines. (Antipersonnel mines are banned under the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty.)”

“Article 2(2)(c) lists the characteristics of a set of munitions with submunitions, the use of which is not believed to cause "indiscriminate area effects and the risks posed by unexploded submunitions." Any munition meeting all five of the criteria listed in Article 2(2)(c)(i-v) are not considered cluster munitions under the convention. Munitions meeting only four or fewer of the criteria are considered cluster munitions. For example, a munition that has less than 10 submunitions, but is not designed to detect and engage a single target object, is a cluster munition.”

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres “supports the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which, as you know, was adopted 15 years ago. And he wants countries to abide by the terms of that convention,” his spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters at the UN headquarters in New York. “And so as a result, of course, he does not want there to be continued use of cluster munitions on the battlefield,” Haq concluded. The Convention on Cluster Munitions came into effect in August 2010, with signatories pledging to “never under any circumstances” use, develop, produce, or transfer the banned munitions, or assist, encourage, and induce anyone else to do so. It has been ratified by 111 states so far – including most NATO members – though not by the US, Ukraine, or Russia.

United States Political Banned Weapons Policies

Before the NSAdvisor’s, Jake Sullivan’s announcement of July 5, 2023, to use Cluster Bombs in Ukraine; the following governments supported banning; namely, Australia; Austria; Canada; Germany; Luxembourg; Norway; Switzerland, and the United States of America.The USA State Department and the U.S Congress have routinely dodged treaties regarding Cluster ammunition. As of 2022, the US Government has not SIGNED Four Key Treaties that related to Global Arms Conventions. Congress Ratified the Convention on Conventional Weapons. The US White House did not sign key documents. So, it is usually murky that the USA likes to have the unilateral first-strike capability for Cluster Bombs to achieve military and political objectives. Now “Pandora’s Box” is open!

History of the Use of Cluster Bombs-A Timeline of cluster bomb use

Syria- 2012–2018 in: The government has denied possessing or using cluster munitions, but its armed forces are responsible for the bulk of the more than 630 cluster munition attacks recorded from 2012 to mid-2018.

Yemen- 2015-2018 in: The armed coalition led by Saudi Arabia used cluster bombs repeatedly in populated areas in 2015-2017. In 2018, cluster munition attacks were probably ongoing but were more difficult to record and confirm, due to challenges in collecting first-hand evidence. Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and others have documented evidence of at least 23 cluster munition attacks during the conflict.

Sudan - 2015 in:Cluster munitions were used by the Sudanese air force in the Nuba Mountains (South Kordofan) during indiscriminate bombings on civilian areas in February and March 2015. There have been additional reports of use in May 2015. The government of Sudan should investigate and explain these incidents, as requested by the UN Security Council on 29 June 2015.

Libya - 2014-2017 in There is confirmed evidence that cluster munitions were used in at least two instances between December 2014 and March 2015, in Sirte and Bin Jawad, and additional unconfirmed reports of use on the Watiya front. The commander of the air force of the internationally recognized government of Libya has denied using cluster munitions. In 2016 and 2017, evidence continued to emerge indicating that Libyan National Army forces were using cluster munitions.

Ukraine - 2014 & 2015 in:Cluster munitions were used by both sides in the conflict in January and February 2015. An OSCE mission documented the use by Poroshenko’s Ukrainian government forces in Luhansk city in late January 2015, while Ukrainian government forces had already used cluster munitions in Donetsk city in October 2014. In August 2014, remnants of cluster munitions were documented in territory controlled by Ukrainian government forces and in territory controlled by armed insurgents. As early as July 2014, evidence indicated cluster munitions had been used.

South Sudan - 2014 in:February 2014 the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) found new cluster munition contamination near the town of Bor on the road to Juba. In September 2014 South Sudan reported to the 5th Meeting of States Parties to the Convention that an investigation conducted jointly with UN officials had not been able to determine who had used the weapon. Both South Sudan and Uganda have denied use.

Syria - Ongoing since 2012 in:The use of cluster munitions in the Syrian conflict started in 2012.

Sudan - 2012 in:Two allegations of cluster munition use by the armed forces of Sudan in South Kordofan. Remnants and evidence were found.

What is a Cluster Bomb?

"A cluster munition, or cluster bomb, is a weapon containing multiple explosive submunitions. Cluster munitions are dropped from aircraft or fired from the ground or sea, opening up in mid-air to release tens or hundreds of submunitions, which can saturate an area up to the size of several football fields. Anybody within the strike area of the cluster munition, be they military or civilian, is very likely to be killed or seriously injured. The fuse of each submunition is generally activated as it falls so that it will explode above or on the ground. But often large numbers of the submunitions fail to function as designed, and instead land on the ground without exploding, where they remain as very dangerous duds. There are a wide variety of types of cluster munitions. According to the Cluster Munition Monitor, a total of 34 states have at one time developed or produced over 200 types of cluster munitions.

What are the Cluster Bombs Delivery systems?

Most delivery systems, be they warships, aircraft, artillery, or rocket launchers, can launch different types of munitions, including both banned cluster munitions and unitary munitions that are not banned. For this reason, the convention does not ban any delivery system, and States Parties, therefore, have no obligation to remove them from service or destroy them.

What is the cost of a US cluster bomb?

"It is 7 feet 7 inches (2.31 meters) long, has a diameter of 16 inches (41 centimeters), and weighs roughly 951 pounds (431 kg). The price is US$14,000 per bomb. Each CBU-87 consists of an SUU-65B canister, a fuse with 12-time delay options, and 202 submunitions (or bomblets) designated BLU-97/B Combined Effects Bomb.


Since the 2022 rigged US Presidential Election, the key policy goal of the Biden Administration is to create Domestic and Global Chaos. “ The White House has confirmed that cluster munitions will be included in the latest batch of military supplies for Ukraine. Kyiv has hailed the delivery as having an “extraordinary psycho-emotional impact” on Russian troops, which the Ukrainian army has not been able to push back in a month of heavy fighting. One of the reasons the Pentagon cited for providing the dual-purpose improved conventional munitions (DPICM) was that the US was running short of conventional 155mm artillery rounds to send to (US Congress Funded) Ukraine.

Who manufactures cluster bombs in the USA?

In a public relations press statement announcing a new round of aid to Ukraine, the Defense Department said the US will be providing “155mm artillery rounds, including DPICM,” or Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munitions – the type of cluster munition the US currently has in its stockpiles. Does the US manufacture cluster bombs? “The United States has not used cluster munitions in combat since 2003 in Iraq, except for a strike in Yemen in 2009, which resulted in civilian casualties. The US stopped budgeting for these weapons for US military use around 2007 and effectively stopped their manufacture altogether around 2016. In 2003 during the Iraq war, US companies made Cluster bombs.”

Northrop Grumman is a leading producer of 20mm tactical and training ammunition, delivering up to three million rounds per year for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, NAVSEA, and U.S. Air Force. Northrop Grumman Plymouth is located just 10 miles west of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is home to Northrop Grumman's Armament Systems business unit the main location for manufacturing Cluster Bombs is Plymouth, Minnesota Northrop+Grumman+and+Lake+City+Army+Amm0 plant.jpg

The US Department of Defense owns LCAAP and NG as a contractor-operated facility has been in continuous production since October 1941. Northrop Grumman and its heritage companies have operated Lake City since 2000. Since then, the company has produced more than 17 billion rounds of small-caliber ammunition for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), a testament to Northrop Grumman’s commitment to arming the warfighter. Thanks to Northrop Grumman’s focus on safety and quality, and its ongoing modernization efforts, the company’s 1,900 dedicated employees will produce more than 1.4 billion rounds at Lake City this year. In addition to manufacturing ammunition for the DoD, the Northrop Grumman-operated Lake City facility also produces high-quality ammunition for commercial customers, allowing the company to maintain a well-trained workforce capable of ramping up warfighter ammunition production in hours instead of months. By remaining in a constant state of readiness, Northrop Grumman can rapidly respond to the ever-changing demands of our nation’s armed forces. It is expected that this facility will increase artillery rounds and cluster bombs for use in the US Congress Funded War in Ukraine. Currently, in 2023, a massive worker hiring process has begun to rapidly increase munitions for NATO and Ukraine by the 4th quarter of 2023, into 2024, and beyond.
