    You gave many great and effective examples of tools used to win wars. "This day and age" Absolutely nothing has changed, the thirst for domination power and control is as prevalent as ever.  You live a sheltered life and take it for granted totally and completely.  Good men  on a daily bases do horrible and horrendous things to other people everyday so you can live a sheltered  life.

    British TV viewers may not realize that Buckminster Fuller was the subject of the very first science programme on BBC2, broadcast in April, 1964. He recalls this here amongst a torrent of reminiscences, reckonings and predictions, composing a brilliant, compressed guide to his ideas."....

    There are no rules in war if you want to win.
    No rules in war itself, except war crimes. However, what you use to win a war isn't supposed to be used during peacetime, and not banning these landmines would certainly cause a substantial amount of civilian deaths after the war.

    2024 Civil War in the US, communists and socialists will unite and attempt to oppress everyone with a totalitarian govt but will underestimate those who they look down on and condescend to the most and will be slaughtered like pigs. US will cease all military aid and protection to European countries and will all become Muslim caliphates.

    Civilians are expendable, they are not even a consideration when you want to win a war. Sucks to be a civilian in a war. Better to choose sides and fight.

    Highest place is ...'all I will do for death is to die for it'.....and that takes as much, or more courage, than all the others.

    Civilians are expendable,
    The Geneva Convention lays down that civilians are not to be subject to attack. This includes direct attacks on civilians and indiscriminate attacks against areas in which civilians are present.

    they are not even a consideration when you want to win a war.
    The law of war rests on five fundamental principles that are inherent to all targeting decisions: military necessity, unnecessary suffering, proportionality, distinction (discrimination), and honor (chivalry).

    Plus, 'mistreatment of civilians' is considered a war crime.
