Improvised Explosive Devices [IEDs] Saginaw Arts and Sciences Academy

Improvised explosive devices have created much harm in the past, as their elusiveness paired with their poor workmanship does the damage it was intended to do. These factors simply up their attractiveness to those trying to cause as much chaos and confusion in battle zones, as well as domestic zones, as possible. Technologies to detect and disarm these IEDs can only work so well as their lack of uniformity allows them to slip under the radar. Unfortunately IEDs are nothing new, and only keep developing ways to increase damage as well as slip under the lens of officials.

India has an intimate history with IEDs, as more often than not these devices were used as agents of destruction during insurgencies (based on border disputes with a number of state and non-state actors.) Trying to combat these issues as best as possible, India has been working to develop more efficient ways at identifying as well as disarming IEDs with as little devastation as possible.

It is of the utmost importance that this committee not only comes to a unanimous conclusion on what to do about IEDs, but does so with little argument. These devices have harmed all member nations of the United Nations in some way (as well as those outside of the United Nations.) Attempts to stop the production of these devices along with aiding countries who find themselves torn apart by the use of IEDs is important as well. India mourns those it has lost to IEDs, and hopes that there will be an end to the unnecessary loss of life [at the hands of these devices.]
