I can't believe I've never heard of this before. Thanks for posting about it.

i'm not sure who's heard of this besides the people who actually dropped the bombs and the folks cleaning them up. the crazy thing is that there are still so many unexploded bombs scattered throughout the country. the film "bombies" mentioned one village where the villagers found a bomb - it was a village that the MAG team had already visited EIGHTEEN TIMES BEFORE. i don't know what the life of a bomb is, but Laotians will be running the risk of being blown up for many, many years to come.
