Electronic Weaponry Advances Guarantees no Peace

To a hammer everything looks like a nail, as the U.S. improves its weaponry the inclination for conflict, imperialism, moral interference, perceived threats, superiority beliefs, trampling sovereign nations rights and more will continue to increase. This increasing warfare state, continues to expand as congress is impotent & the Executive Branch sees global events as nails waiting to be hammered.

In this latest technology improvement welcome to the Mobile High Energy Laser (MEHEL) System, which has been greatly improved since the 2015 version which was at 2kW power, here in 2017 it’s now at an astounding 5kW of power. MEHEL will destroy both Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) & ground targets without bullets or sound & can be controlled from a distance making warfare easier.

MEHEL, Anti-UAV Defense System & the Hunter/Killer System are new state of art systems created in part to take out combatant UAS’s and to enhance remote waring capabilities. On the flip side of the UAS coin, the Army Research Laboratory has created a hybrid drone that hovers like a helicopter & while in flight can tilt its wings and begin to fly like a jet mimicking the capabilities of the V-22 Osprey.

With a bigger war hammer, increased defense budget & the war powers act, hardliners, defense contractors & big business are salivating at the endless possibilities for conflict. In fact, in an alleged statement Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis was overheard saying “we need to grow our military ranks because it’s vital we prepare for the upcoming wars we’re going to create. We’ll stir up the masses saying everyone’s a threat and that we must follow the Bush doctrine (preemptive strikes). Our gullible population should fall for this as they’re dumb as bricks”.

Gullible U.S. Pays $535m for Virtual Training

Traditionally U.S. armed forces focused on insurgency, counterinsurgency (COIN) and stabilizing operations. Only since the turn of the century has the U.S. military began to focus heavily on COIN as a major strategy for combating 21st century enemies. In dealing with its enemies and potential enemies the U.S. has the luxury of knowing its military capability is vastly superior to that of any other military power on the planet. Because of this superiority foes have chosen to use unconventional warfare combining ancient frontal war, and modern technology with insurgency and terrorism when confronting American forces or allies.

Because war and conflict are inevitable, military leaders have recommended preparing their troops for nonconventional warfare. And to pivot military focus from the Middle East to Asia because competition, tensions and the changing economic situation of nations will likely lead to war and conflict in that region. With the possibility of soldiers having to operate in two theatres of war the military is looking to broaden its members training because skillsets needed in the middle east would be vastly different than those needed in Asia. Because of the changing dynamics of war, required training in both the Army & Marine Corps will include gaming and virtual training.

In an effort to decrease training costs the Army decided to move from live combat training to that of virtual training. During a recruitment session recruits were treated to virtual & gaming training, while engaged some recruits said the training was like being high, invincible and Rambo at the same time. One recruit said I never knew killing could be so much fun, do heads really splatter like that when you shoot them in the head asked one recruit? The response was try this set, it has virtual families, see what you can do to them, mow the grass or trim the bushes. Either way you can become an expert with this half a $ billion set of virtual tools we just purchased from Hussein Virtual Express Game Makers.
