New Land Mines to have Nobel Prize Commemoration (Satire)

nobel_peace_mineOn the coattails of the announcement by the Obama Administration to reject the Treaty Banning Landmines, a new landmine commemorating the Nobel Peace Prize has been released for immediate use in the middle east conflicts.

The new landmines will feature a 24K gold planted stamp of Alfred Nobel’s Prize for Peace. Each landmine will be numbered for authenticity. A representative from the Lockheed Martin Corporation was quoted saying,

“We are proud to support the expanding effort for peace in the middle east, and stand behind the production of the PeaceMine, (as we here at Lockheed Martin like to call it) and we hope evil doers all over the world recognize what is at stake for our country and our freedoms.”

The number of the ‘PeaceMines’ produced by Lockheed Martin is still being determined but at only $260,000 a piece, Lockheed Martin has said “we the American people are getting a steal of a deal.”

If the Obama administration expands the $534 billion military budget for 2010, the Lockheed representative confirmed   “we as Americans can bet on a safer country, a stronger America, and more Peaceful World.”
