The House of Commons has passed a law banning the use of cluster munitions. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8584135.stm With the UK now falling in line fully with the Oslo convention on cluster munitions, where do British forces stand when operating alongside non-signatories such as the USA? Would a British soldier requesting CAS from a US aircraft be prosecuted if cluster munitions were used? Although the controller on the ground should be able to dictate what ordnance is used, it hasn't been unheard of for some US pilots to simply jump in on the bun fight and offer a bigger stick whether asked for or not. Has passing this law simply created another can of worms waiting to be opened?
