    Either you use a mine clearance vehicle or you detonate them on site but you do not manipulate them with such an easy going attitude.
    I was wondering same thing!

    No point of doing that if it's not huge UXO in city center and the economical considerations have to be taken into calculation.

    Good stuff, but personially if I had to disarm a mine the old way, i wouldn't wear protective gear unless one of those toe popper type mines because a nornal mine going off a foot from my body will most likely kill me anyways or if it doesn't I might be so injured i would wish it did.

    Also disarming a mine isn't the big problem it's finding them I think since they can be made or hidden to the point were they are impossible to find.

    Also what are the types of mines the north Koreans use thou I wouldn't be surprised if some of theres were made of stone and black powder lol

    You can talk tough all you want on the net. When you had to do it for real, I bet your @ss, you'll have on every piece of kit you can get your hands on. Sometimes you just need to think that it might do something.

    The Issue? what Issue? this thread is an Anti Mine thread? who the hell would know from the barely literate postings you put forth.

    Mines do have applications in warfare, of channeling the enemy into Kill Zones and Denial of Manuever. Where most become problems for civilians is due to insurgents/Half assed 3rd world armies who dont map them out and dont mark them like Professional Militaries do, and Scatterables from Artillery and Aircraft.

    You left a Post on Claymores thats Gibberish and I defy an english speaker to understand your intent of the post. Tighten it up as there is good info you could be posting on this subject.
