WASHINGTON - Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before they are used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.What a good idea! I say start with Congress, microwave the whole miserable lot of them, then serve 'em with drawn butter and maybe a hint of parsley.
Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions in the international community over any possible safety concerns, said Secretary Michael Wynne.
Non-lethal weapons have been this panacea for years...spray 'em with icky stuff, bonk 'em with rubber balls, Food Channel 'em...then the non-lethal thingie kills someone, the manufacturer redefines the product as "less lethal" and nitwits like Michael Wynne go back to the drawing board.
I'm bracing for the tsunami of gun control crap after the Montreal shootings. You might want to visiting VampireFreaks, the website of choice for the shooter, Kimveer Gill, AKA The Angel of Death, just to keep tabs on what the kids are up to...or you can go straight to Mssr. Death's favorite Internet role-playing game, the Super Columbine Massacre! In truth, I don't have a clue...but if I was a college student, I think I might take a break from binge drinking and throwing up to take a shooting class...
