Desmilitarizar el agua


Explanation:
Dudo qie sea un error tipográfico porque cambian demasiadas letras, y desmilitarizar el agua es algo de lo que se habla a menudo en algunos contextos.

El agua es un recurso obviamente esencial y que, debido a su escasez en muchas zonas del mundo, es considerada por los gobiernos como un factor estratégico clave, y muchos predicen que las guerras más cruentas del futuro se deberán al agua. Yo he leido la frase antes, pero todo dependerá del contexto, con lo que es muy posible que se trtae simplemente de minerales como han propuesto otros colegas. Suerte.

Explanation:
To make some sense here you have to assume there's a misspelling, and it's "demilitarized" instead of "dimilitarize". Then the translation should be "aguas desmilitarizadas", often used expression in International Law and Treaties.
