" according to reports works perfectly ". I see that it works, but Perfectly? No. But it works enough to show the Appropriations Committee that more funding for R&D may get us there. I hope Boeing can continue working on this. We dont NEED it NOW, but some day we will!

imagine the smile on admiral olson's face the first time he gets to authorize an ATL or ABL strike as commander of USSOCOM that would automatically make my day if i was in his boots. id make them capture it on video for my own personal viewing pleasure "Laser Beam!! 'KABLAMMO!!!'"

That's....great...Next thing ya know, we'll have lightsabers and TIE fighters around... No,No,NO, - We will all go back to using Swords and Shields. It's better for the Economy and all the Gamers are Qualified!

In years to come, the secret supertroopers of SOCOM may be able to cause a cell tower to stop working, a vehicle's fuel tank to suddenly explode, or a single person to inexplicably be incinerated - all completely silently and tracelessly, without anyone knowing they were ever there and not so much as a spent bullet left behind. Source Why do I feel disturbed by that.. what if they shoot the wrong person or someone gets in the way.. Isn't it wrong to eliminate a target that way..
