Remember that post the other day about the microwave pain ray? The one that the Air Force secretary says should be field tested on Americans first?
According to Bloomberg News, "Raytheon's new weapon, which is intended to repel hostile forces by creating a sensation of intense heat on skin, doesn't act quickly enough to be effective, said U.S. Marine Corps Col. Wade Hall, who directs the program that would test the device."DefenseTech also noted that the planning for an Iraq deployment for live tests was talked about as early as December of 2005. It seems that the 18th Military Police Brigade has requested ADS "to help 'suppress' insurgent attacks and quell prison uprisings."
I can't believe that the Air Force secretary was unaware of all this.
