    what do you mean "anti-mine"? we are one of the few countries that hasn't ratified the mine-ban treaty, and we continue to manufacture mines (for our own consumption).

    if you are serious, learn how to prod for mines. carry a bayonet (or something like it). you need to practice to get the "feel" of what you have struck.

    In the first place: out-of-the-blue how come in the middle of mine field? Or even out of the blue why carrying bayonet?

    Where is he in??

    Cambodia?? That may still be a mine-riddled area. As such, there are still plenty of casualties from mines. Mine-prodding would be the simplest way out but only if you know what you are doing. There are plenty of mines these days and a large amount are now largely plastic in exterior and may not set off the metal detectors.

    I'd actually be more afraid of the old style booby traps (bamboo stakes and the such)

    Not really... Singapore is one of the few countries that deploy AP mines which detonate on triggering.

    Most of the countries that don't subscribe to labelling their minefields.. Well.. Will probably have more evil mines... Like Jumping mines to detonate at your chest level..

    Who needs a PLC when you've got Lambe now? Hehe.. And the Lambe's bigger brother..

    That's what I'm trying to say. Don't belive the shows that says "I've stepped on a landmine and it'll blow when I lift my leg off it." Most mines blow when stepped on.

    you have pending PM pls clear your inbox, it's full.
