    I love the Military Industrial Complex!!!! :D


    The military's "pain ray" may be going airborne.
    New Scientist magazine reports that the Air Force has beefed up its share of funding for the Active Denial System, a tightly focused beam of microwaves that causes an intense, but theoretically harmless, burning sensation on the skin of its human targets.

    MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The Air Force version, according to New Scientist, will be packed into an aircraft and be capable of handling multiple beams at once -- making it perfect for non-lethal crowd control.
    Do the USAF have much in the way of helicopters? I don't see how putting it on a plane is going to help with crowd control - and I find the idea of using as crowd control rather disturbing.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Wow...if this isn't a scary ass idea then I don't know what is.
    “The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Freedom is the natural yearning of the human sprit as we were endowed by our creator.

    but unless they are helicopter based - how effective can it be?
