Are punji sticks legal?

The punji stick, sometimes known as the punji stake, is a booby-trapped stake. It's just a basic spike made of wood or bamboo that's been sharpened and fired. Punji sticks are often used in large numbers. Punji sticks were prohibited under the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons in the early 1980s. However, they are now allowed to be manufactured and imported into China for use on private land.

In Indonesian culture, they're used as ancestral offerings to help the soul of someone who has died can find its way out of the body. They believe that if you walk across the path of a punji stick, then that person will come back to life so be careful where you step.

There have been cases of Western hikers being injured by punji sticks deployed by Indonesian forest guards. The sticks are aimed at reducing the risk of humans falling victim to wild animals in the forests. Because they're designed to kill humans, they're illegal to import into Indonesia.

However, they are available online and in some Asian shops. Please exercise caution when buying these items online as there have been reports of fake sticks being sold. If you do decide to buy one of these sticks, then make sure it's from a reputable seller and test it first before using it in the forest.

There have been reports of Vietnamese soldiers using rusty nails and other metal objects as weapons against U.S. soldiers. This violates the rules of warfare as set out in the Geneva Conventions. The use of these weapons may result in fatal injuries from which the victim cannot recover.

Vietnam has never admitted that it used punji sticks in its conflicts with China and the United States. However, the fact that they still exist within Vietnam's military forces suggests that someone inside the country's government may have authorized their use.

In conclusion, punji sticks are forbidden because they are dangerous weapons that could cause fatal injuries. Their use may also violate the rights of prisoners of war under international law.
