Would the US like its bomb back?

Dear Editor,

I do not know the plans for disposing of the old but still deadly 250kg US bomb found in Kandal (Post, March 18). However, I would like to suggest that, once rendered safe, the bomb be returned to the US government.

Perhaps the US government would then reduce by the cost of the bomb the $300 million it claims Cambodia still has to pay in return for the US’s selfless intervention in Cambodian affairs in the 1970s.
