  • New, Non-Lethal Military Weapon - Active Denial System

    MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — The military calls its new weapon an "active denial system," but that's an understatement. It's a ray gun that shoots a beam that makes people feel as if they are about to catch fire.

    Apart from causing that terrifying sensation, the technology is supposed to be harmless — a non-lethal way to get enemies to drop their weapons.

    The military demonstrated a new non-lethal ray gun today at Moody Air Force Base, Ga. The beam makes people feel as if they are about to catch fire. Officials said the weapon could be used to increase the security of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

    How do you expect me to have a RED WHITE and BLUE sig when the background is obnoxious white?

      Wonder how that idea came up.

      Okay guys, brainstorm some new weapons...

      "Let's make a gun that makes people feel like they catch on fire! But nothing else happens!"

      "Gold!"

          Sounds painful.

          It reminds me of something that George Carlin once said:

We don't have any flamethrowers. I'd say we're if we have to go up against the army, wouldn't you? But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way to far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them." Well, it might have ended right there, but he mentioned it to his friend. His friend who was good with tools. And about a month later, he was back. "Hey, quite a concept!" WHHOOOOOOOOSSHHH! And of course the army heard about it, and they came around. "We'd like to buy about five hundred-thousand of them please. We have some people we'd like to throw flame on. Give us five hundred thousand and paint them dark brown. We don't want anyone to see them."

            I wonder if the mental anguish could kill someone if they were being shot by the ray long enough.

                Here's a demonstration video clip I found....

                  Well, THEN the weapon would be called LETHAL, correct?
                  "It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,
                  tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of
                  men."

                  -- Samuel Adams

                    Ha ha. I don't know....look at the mental anguish we experience right here on this board sometimes and we've managed to stay alive.
