LANDMINES: US Landmine Policy
Anti-personnel landmines kill or maim 18,000 people a year. In Afghanistan, a heavily mined country, as many as 88 people a month have stepped on a mine. Since the start of the US bombing campaign, that number is thought to be much higher. A landmine is a horrific weapon that maims and kills indiscriminately, a weapon that most of the world's countries have seen fit to ban in a 1997 treaty. The United States remains one of the few that has not signed it. President Clinton put off signing the treaty to 2006, and the Bush Administration appears to be backing away from Clinton's promises altogether. The Defense Department has stressed the need for landmine use in areas where special forces are in operation, perhaps making mines an important part of the US "war on terrorism." The following interview with Gina Coplon-Newfield, the Physicians for Human Rights-based coordinator of the US Campaign to Ban Landmines, describes mines and their implications for human rights, US policy towards mine-banning efforts, past and present, and ongoing efforts to get the US to join the mine-ban treaty.
