Unfortunately that introduces the concern:
'Are we more valuable than the Iraqi people?'
In order to give pain, we must be able to take it,Or else our ownership of such a tool might be questioned.
However, I'd point out a brief observation:
Use it only as a deterrant against insurgents, not as a means of control for the Iraqi populace.
But as for a means of crowd dispersal? Let's stick to Riot Guards for that.
These types of weapons should specifically be barred from use on United States citizens.

And remember: "... non lethal weapon systems that turned out to be quite lethal." For the titorites amongst us.
