With the final decision on draft legislation for cluster munitions being deferred for some months now, this is not the place to again rehearse arguments based on either international humanitarian law, general treaty obligations, or the role of a middle-powers such Australia in norm entrepreneurship. Rather, I seek here to highlight two possible ways in which individual Australians will be needlessly faced with operational implementation and moral dilemmas that the Senate must ensure are addressed by immediate amendment to the current bill.

That is, why two loopholes in the Cluster Munitions Prohibition Bill (2010) makes for one big cluster fuck.
