Air Force chief: Test weapons on testy U.S. mobs

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne.

"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."

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

Not as far fetched as it sounds. I believe that many years ago they (the US authorities) released radioactive gas over the US to track its dispersion!

Then there's all the guck that they (and we) put in fast food and feed their/our own peeps and in other countries.

Curious? Is not a weapon intended to injure? I am confused!
