Should the country that laid the land mines and dropped cluster bombs be made to remove them?

For every 50 people living today there is 1 unexploded land mine An estimated of 100 million of them, These mines kill or injure 20,000 each and every year many young children playing in areas where they have been dropped .Russia, China and the US all have refused to stop making these terrible weapons so should these 3 countries pay for their ultimate removal

    We pray for that to happen because people after the war can't tolerate anymore violence and suffering, and the country that launched the cluster bombs owns maps indicating the location of these bombs, and when this country realizes that it is legally required to remove the bombs, it will think a million times before firing them again.

    The next paragraph is from the Daily Star newspaper (with some updates in figures):

    During the 34-day war with Israel in 2006, the Jewish state dropped around four million cluster bombs over South Lebanon, mostly during the conflict's final 72 hours. Around 500,000 of those munitions did not explode, and have killed or seriously injured hundreds of civilians and deminers since the conflict ended. Landmines dating back from Israel's occupation and from Lebanon's 1975-1990 civil war also remain scattered. "Today there are over 2 million anti-personnel mines [including cluster munitions] in the South of Lebanon.

    It's too expensive. The Nazi's are still digging mines out of France.... oh wait...

    First both sides will revive the other sides dead, than replace all missing body parts than and only then do the cluster bomb thing.
