I'm not a fan of Israel, and I'll usually stay out of these types of threads, but I cannot keep my mouth shut.
Landmines are arguably one of the worst weapons of war in my opinion.
Yeah, nukes are terrible, but nobody uses them. Only 2 have ever been used in war in the history of this planet. It takes very direct action to nuke
someone. Everyone is scared of them, and I really don't think anyone is stupid enough to use them.
Landmines will kill anybody. Israel and its neighbors could resolve their conflict tomorrow, have 20 years of peace, and people will STILL be killed
and maimed by land mines. They are just terrible.
We already have sickening examples of this happening. Little kids out playing step on a mine and blow their legs off or die.
I find it absolutely disgusting that Israel would be using land mines, but sadly nothing Israel does really surprises me anymore.
