All this does is take the fun out of war.
Running, shooting, blowing crap up with hand grenades, dodging bullets, flanking maneouvers, strafing fire, cover fire, calling in air support, retreating, getting grid coordinates for artillery strikes, scouting, paratrooping, seek and destroy missions, covert ops, tank columns, prisoner exchanges, interrogation, foxholes, defilades, claymore mine set-up, booby traps, yelling "INCOMING!', general charge commands, shellshock, crazy homeless veterans, and so on and so on.
Now, just blast them from the Ionosphere with our S2004 Tactical Satellite! Shoot a couple missiles from a thousand miles away.
This won't be like the old days, where you had to shoot an enemy you can see.
Kind of desensitizes death.
Note: I'm being totally sarcastic. We do actually need more technologically advanced weapons, so we can kill faster and cleaner!!!
Wait, I'm doing it again.................
