This is insane

I'm watching Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations and he's in Laos. I just watchen a segment where he followed the UXO Lao (unexploded ordinance) around as they searched for unexploded bombs that the U.S. dropped on Laos during the Vietnam war. We were not at war with Laos but planes would fly over and drop their leftover bombs there. Millions of them. There are still millions of unexploded bombs that are often discovered by farmers tilling their land. Tony meets a family and has a meal with them and the husband and father lost limbs from an unexploded bomb. I was actually able to find the segment on YouTube. Check this out. Does anyone else feel that there is something wrong with this?
