"HPMs are man-made lightning bolts crammed into cruise missiles. They could be key weapons for targeting Saddam Hussein's stockpiles of biological
and chemical weapons. HPMs fry the sophisticated computers and electronic gear necessary to produce, protect, store and deliver such agents. The
powerful electromagnetic pulses can travel into deeply buried bunkers through ventilation shafts, plumbing and antennas. But unlike conventional
explosives, they won't spew deadly agents into the air, where they could poison Iraqi civilians or advancing U.S. troops."
I agree any war technology that means no lives are lost are brilliant, problem could be that these systems are developed by the military without
anyone really keeping an eye on just whats being developed and could have other, say environmental or long term harmful effects to people.
