The irony is that the Bushmaster these RBKA fanatics claim to die to keep is already obsolete [View all]

Already i hear the RBKA fanatics whine it wouldn't be right for the government to use drones on them! Hell, papparazzi are chasing celebrities around with drones. Greenpeace is using an observation one on the Japanese whaling fleet. They're already using robots in combat. Google has won the right to remotely drive cars in several states. In a short time they'll have a robot tank in a bad guys driveway and it will release little antlike nanobots into your house and they'll make you surrender or come out your guts like shotgun. All this can mostly be done by remote control


The Turner Diary dream of fighting the government is almost dead! Sorry gun nuts your time is almost over.

Future nanotech weapons will disable, not kill

By Dick Pelletier

When scientists discovered that sickle-cell anemia could be cured by using nanotech to relocate a single amino acid in the blood that had erroneously wandered out of place, researchers from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency took notice.

DARPA scientists realized that nanobots – launched in the form of invisible, odorless, "space dust” – could alter a single amino acid in an enemy’s spinal cord rendering him temporarily incapacitated. Our soldiers (or robots) could then win battles without firing a shot.

In addition, researchers believe DNA-specific devices could be created that would target only a single person. Osama bin-Laden, for example, could be located by showering an entire country or region with billions of nanobots searching only for his DNA. On contact these ‘bots would alter his brain creating an irresistible desire for him to surrender.

Military strategists believe these futuristic weapons will change the face of war forever. Rather than risking lives by attacking an enemy who could respond, soldiers will simply wait for their adversary to fall "asleep” before moving in. Future war tactics, experts say, will no longer focus on which buildings to destroy, but which individuals to incapacitate – with virtually no collateral damage.

Eric Drexler, the "father” of nanotechnology, had this to say: "It is my hope that we gain such an overwhelming advantage that we dominate our adversaries in combat without causing anyone serious harm (beyond extreme frustration).”
