The country of Laos came into mainstream media attention when President Obama visited earlier this year. A beautiful place with many amazing sites. This country is the most bombed country in our history. Over 270 million cluster bombs were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War (210 million more bombs than were dropped on Iraq in 1991, 1998 and 2006 combined); up to 80 million did not detonate.
