From CNN, Air Force Chief: Test Weapons on Testy U.S. Mobs
"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."
The Air Force has paid for research into nonlethal weapons, but he said the service is unlikely to spend more money on development until injury problems are reviewed by medical experts and resolved.
I agree, Mr. Secretary, you oughtta be first in line, bastard.
So, to sum it all up, we have defective "nonlethal" weapons that injure people in unintentional ways, the head of the United States Air Force wants to beta test them on the American public, and Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne is a bonehead. Only a Bushite or Microsoft Exec would even suggest such a thing.
I'll be happy in '08 when I can cast my first presidential vote for whoever runs against the Republicans, and hopefully promises to throw these kinds of idiots out into the gutter.
