Arab Nations Soon To Be Stunned

Well its about time. The military is finaly ready to skip the "laser" and "blaster" steps and jump directly to phasers. Phasers, which we all know, can be set on "stun". Or, of course "vaporize" if there are no embedded reporters around.

"When you're dealing with people whose full intent is to die, you can't give people a choice of whether to comply," said George Gibbs, who oversees directed-energy projects. "What I'm looking for is a way to shoot everybody, and they're all OK."

This attitude is probably what's holding up support from the government. The engineers working on this keep throwing around terms like "non-lethal" an expression that does nothing to excite Texans and their like. I recommend demos which involve melting tanks and their passengers. Get those good ol' boys riled up and then mention that you can "set it on stun."

Of course right now the "Directed Energy Weapon" is a 20ft. tower, but miniaturization is our specialty as of late. So it wont be long before soldiers are complaing the buttons are too small.

Read all about it here.

And thank you Rich-Rock for the heads up.
