Quoted For Truth

“Am I the only one who realizes that landmines would be cheap, easy, and definitely not a wall?”  from Facebook via Instapundit.

Additionally, completely within the military's budget!


  1. I have been saying the same thing for 2 years now... And funding can be provided by a paid website showing streaming video of the boom boom

  2. Hey Angus;

    I think they are international rules against mines, I think the Ottawa conventions...tempting as it would be.

  3. From Wikipedia:
    The Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction, known informally as the Ottawa Treaty, the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, or often simply the Mine Ban Treaty, aims at eliminating anti-personnel landmines (AP-mines) around the world. To date, there are 164 state parties to the treaty. One state (the Marshall Islands) has signed but not ratified the treaty, while 32 UN states, including the United States, Russia, China and India are non-signatories, making a total of 33 United Nations states not party.

    It would seem that there is, in fact, no proscription on the US using land mines, particularly within its own borders.

  4. Yep. Perfectly within our wheelhouse to use all the landmines we want. We didn't fall for all that bullscat from the dead Princess who was hanging around with some Muslim guy in Paris one fatal night...

    We have warehouses full of mines, and some really neat mine-laying machines. We even have mine-laying machines that lay wire at the same time.

    Now if we had (as a nation) the balls to do this, and build a hard barrier consisting of a double set of walls and wire and a landmine, just think of all the coyotes and Coyotes and mules and horses and drug dealers and 'innocent' victims we could scatter all over the landscape.

    There's even an Indian reservation on the border where the tribal elders get mucho dinero from cartels to allow drugs and illegals to pass through their borders. So.. in the interest of 'Tribal Independence' we can mine and wire the barrier around their reservation, too.
