Sadly I agree with you, It is very powerful. But just remember, the A bomb was dropped twice and not since then has any government been willing to use it again
The device mostly hid a small copper cylinder from microwaves in tests at Duke University, North Carolina.
It works by deflecting the microwaves around the object and restoring them on the other side, as if they had passed through empty space.
Next, the researchers placed the invisibility cloak over the copper cylinder. The cloak did not completely iron out the disturbance, but it greatly reduced the microwaves being blocked or deflected.

Well, don't you think this weapon would make the terrorists think twice if they could not reach their intended target to blow up themselves and whoever is near them?

The guy's rationale makes no sense.
We could "kill everyone within a city block" with simple bombs too, the problem is you'll get 20 innocent bystanders for every insurgent.
The avowed goal is to pacify Iraq, not to depopulate it...

You could just point it in the sky and leave it on, if you had a decent power source.
Hell, if you made one big enough you could make some kind of security field that would fry anything that went in it's path - the ultimate security system, in otherwords.
Say goodbye to mile after mile of fencing and fortification, say hello to Ray-gun outposts with directed beams surrounding the HQ.
