Wow, that's some pretty creepy stuff..
..except for the gay bomb. That's just absolutely ridiculously funny. XD
Spooky? Perhaps, but I'm glad that the USA is staying at the forefront of military technology. The active defense system for tanks, naval rail gun, "rods from god", and missile killing laser seem especially promising.
I'd really be interested in seeing the rods from god implemented. Having nuclear scale firepower with no radioactivity would make deterrence much more usable.
I understand your view but I think that too much power is a bad thing, it just creates tension between countries and encourages arms races. But if there really was a need for using such destructive weapons I guess no nuclear fallout is a good thing.
I also think that deterence only goes so far. IMO any of the major powers in todays world wouldn't just sit around being scared, they'd try to develop their own weapons system.
I've heard about most of that stuff on there except for the usage of bats. That's insanely crazy that they thought about using bats as timed bombers. I don't know whether to applaud the ingenuity or whether to say that whoever thought of that needs to seek help (at that time.)
there's a quote by some bassel dude... it goes "to have peace, prepare for war" and "you're an idiot"...
the only way to prevent the use of such weapons is to own large quantities of them under your basement window or other secret hiding place.
wow; very interesting website. scary stuff!
Some of those were very interesting and could drastically change the way combat is handled. I think that any weapon that is considered non-fatal is better than one that is.
i really feel like trying one of those non lethal weapons. i just hope its alot safer than razers.. now that would be fun!!! thinki of the chaos!!
Everybody is talking about how having too much power would be a bad thing, but i'd like to point out that most of the weapons highlighted in the article are experimental or simply hypothetical. What danger is there in a hypothetical weapon that doesn't exist and there is no evidence it can exist.
That said, the fact that such weapons are even being considered is quite shocking. You only have to look at Hiroshima to see the destruction such weapons can cause, and here we have a list of twenty different weapons. Developing such weapons only leads to competition between countries, and who has the biggest rocket.
Well it is scary that we're testing/thinking of developing these weapons, but then, this is something that has been going on for a long time. We come up with a weapon, and sooner or later another country develops that weapon and copies us.
I only hope there isn't a World War III. That would be catastrophic.
It'd be the nuclear war everybody fears.
I've seen some of those projects before on television. Interesting read though, thanks for the link.
