Ukraine requested CBU-100 cluster bombs


The US government is seriously considering sending cluster munitions to Ukraine to help counter Russian forces, a senior US official has revealed.

The chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Miley, recently said that dual-use improved conventional munitions (DPICM) capable of detonating and scattering smaller munitions over a wider area may be sent.


Last February, Ukraine asked the US for CBU-100 cluster bombs, also known as Mk.20 Rockeye II, in order to dismantle them and then attach the warheads to its unmanned vehicles and drones to carry out devastating hits on Russian tanks with greater accuracy.

However, US authorities are concerned that civilians could be killed or injured if they fall on unexploded bombs. This risk, along with adverse reactions from allies, prevented the US from delivering the bombs to Kiev.

According to reports, the Biden administration has yet to reach a final decision on Ukraine's request.


The Biden administration is close to "yes".

"We have been thinking about DPICM munitions for a long time, since the Ukrainians have asked for it," General Miley said.

“Other European countries have provided some of it, the Russians are using it. So yes, of course there is a decision-making process going on…”.


A recent report by POLITICO noted that some US officials are optimistic that the Biden administration is now close to saying yes to the expected handover.

US Army DPICM cluster munitions are designed to destroy multiple military targets and can be fired by HIMARS and 155mm guns.

In 2010, an international ban was imposed on cluster munitions due to the high risk to civilians.

The US has not signed the sanction, but Congress has put legislative restrictions on the country's ability to transfer cluster munitions to allies. Only the US president or secretary of state can override the restrictions.


The Lord's Prayer was the close out


Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’
