Argument: Landmines indiscriminately kill civilians, violating laws of war
Jody Williams. "Ban land mines and cluster bombs." Boston Globe. April 13, 2009: "The international instruments banning land mines and cluster bombs are hybrids of disarmament and international humanitarian law - the laws of war. Each bans an entire class of weapons. Each rests on fundamental principles of the laws of war about the illegality of indiscriminate weapons and that the "means and methods" of warfare must not have an effect on civilian populations disproportionate to their immediate military gain."
