Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for August 25, 2007
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Presents: News of the Times U.S. Recalls Thousands of Bombs Found Harmful to Iraqi and Afghan Children The Department of Defense announced a RECALL of many of its BOMBS after finding DEFECTS that could make them potentially HARMFUL TO CHILDREN. Man: We don't want to alarm anyone, but until this is sorted out, we advise Iraqi and Afghan parents to keep kids away from falling U.S. bombs. Man: If this bomb were to be used in an air strike on a village and, God forbid, failed to detonate, a child could come upon it and ingest LEAD PAINT from its covering. Man: Or a child could happen upon this missile, dismantle its laser guidance system, swallow stabilizing MAGNETS, and puncture his intestine. This may be an expensive recall, but when it comes to the health of the children whose towns and villages we're bombing, we say: SAFETY FIRST! Man: With the U.S.'s ballooning trade deficit, BOMBS are our chief "export". If the perception is that they're not safe for kids, who will want to be bombed by us in the future?
