The Mine Ban Treaty, the ICBL's signature success, counts 160 countries as party to its terms. The United States is not one of them, keeping company with other hold-outs such as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia and China.

Noted though can't sign as I am not in the U.S. Land mines continue to cause horrific damage to the local populace long after conflicts have ended.

Rethink your signing. land mines have a military purpose. Area denial. If you lived surrounded by enemies who wanted your land and resources how would you defend it? In history parts of upper Europe had a "bee" barrier as the thriving flowers and bee hive discouraged invaders. Now well meaning people do not understand warfare. Some after killing each other fro centuries have come to the conclusion that they could get along some what. But as fences make good neighbors; minefields make good neighbors of nations.
