And the sad thing is landmines kill or maim more innocent children and civilians than the enemy forces they were intended for. Landmines are for cowards.

They're among the cruelest weapons, because they stay in the ground after the war and have to be removed before civilian tread on them. Sometimes I have the feeling that some humans use their creativity to develop new weapons, instead of using it for a good purpose e.g. scientific projects to save our planet.

They should be governed better - they don't even keep track of where they put them - they don't remove them c'ause they don't remember where they are. I'd like to send those people out "for a walk"
