Ban the mines

First published in Letters by

IT has come to my notice that some new equipment has been produced for clearing land mines.

One is called the Goliath, which is partly like a combine harvester and a flail tank, the other is the Dragon, where you safely heat the mine to explode.

Due to the millions of men, women and children and the number of land mines being scattered around the world, I feel this sort of equipment should be given freely to the countries which have suffered.

Also I think it is about time that mines were banned along with other evil devices like depleted uranium, cluster bombs, napalm and also a new type of bullet that has come out which is similar to the dum-dum.

This bullet can smash through six sheets of reinforced glass. Also, it is about time we made war itself illegal.

Great idea! Ban landmines IED's and so on. The Taliban are reasonable people and I am sure they will see sense.
After that we can save the whale, cure cancer and end world poverty. Bono and Sting will help.
