Navy ray guns set to lousy synth dance rock

This is how we spend our money: Video promotions of big laser guns that can destroy a couple flimsy toys, floating or flying. Mounted on a giant naval vessel in the Persian Gulf. Oh, and set to a synthetic rock soundtrack that wouldn’t have made it on MTV in the Eighties.


The empire’s idea of cool brainlessly set to old shooter video game rock: So bad, virtually beyond words.

From the publicity:

“Laser weapons are powerful, affordable and will play a vital role in the future of naval combat operations,” Rear Adm. Matthew L. Klunder, chief of naval research, said in a statement Wednesday. “We ran this particular weapon, a prototype, through some extremely tough paces, and it locked on and destroyed the targets we designated with near-instantaneous lethality.”

The laser performed flawlessly through a range of adverse weather conditions and took out moving targets both at sea and in the air, including small boats and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Operated via a “video-game like controller,” the system is designed to go from non-lethal to lethal output to stun or destroy “asymmetrical threats” like small ships and UAVs.

Asymmetrical threats, of course, meaning skiffs and plastic boats with a machine gun or a rocket-propelled grenade launcher on them, manned by paupers, preferably smaller and almost always not-white.

With the largest military in world history the US isn’t capable of winning wars anymore. And that’s because its war-fighting strategies, for all the firepower, manpower and money spent, are appalling to the rest of the world.

Sure, it can wreck things and reduce cities and infrastructure to rubble globally.

But you can’t win when the disdain of the entire planet is on you. Fritzing poor people with billion dollar extravagances in misused technology is always going to be a very public disaster. Almost as brilliant as adopting torture.

    Really, these boobs won’t understand “why” the backlash will happen.
    Not in a million years.

    If they do they probably theorize they won’t be the ones paying for it. They may be right.
