      In addition to the "traditional" method of emplacing minefields (i.e., by
      hand), which is a deterministic process governed by doctrine or tactics (and
      therefore somewhat predictable), more technologically-advanced military
      organizations may place minefields remotely or indirectly by air or
      artillery. In these cases, individual mine placement will be random, within
      a non-randomly selected target area.

      It is interesting for the unknowledgeable like myself to
      speculate that
      the original distribution of land mines is not random, that
      cleanup is
      also not random, but is concentrated instead in areas where
      land mines
      are more frequent, and therefore the distribution after
      cleanup is also
      not random, and perhaps correlated negatively with the
      original
      distribution.
      Ridiculous?
