Make that four million points of death

Allegedly. Marc Garlasco of Human Rights Watch: "As a comparison in the war in Iraq in 2003, the United States over three weeks dropped 2 million cluster sub-munitions. Israel in the war in Lebanon dropped 4 million in three days. It dwarfs any use of cluster bombs prior. You can take Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo and put them together and you’re not going to come close to what happened in southern Lebanon."

"Four million" is a few orders of magnitude more than what has been reported on NPR, the NYt, and other award-winning corporate media outlets.

No one ever wins
