I just observed that Navy laser weapon video...goodness gracious what wrong with you people?
Young scientists clapping and yahooing as another UAS is shot down, what happened to peace?.
You have SO many secret Naval, University, Think Tank, etc departments its incredible.....but the question is why?
People often ask on this forum, "Why does the World hates America?"........Well These weapons are some of the reasons, not to mention greed, secrecy,
everything else that is bad.
You now know why the Russians and Chinese dont trust you.
The sooner the Military Machine, that is America is shut down, the Better.

Ohh where am I?????
You know, speaking from experience, not all of us involved in research and development do so with "war" in mind. I can't tell you how many projects
fly by that at least from the perspective we are coming from, are begun with ONLY the best interests of others at heart.
My g-grandfather helped create the atomic weapon (among other things that many use in their cars every single day) but even then he was hoping for a
way to "stop another war" from occurring if, in the face of such overwhelming power, others laid down their arms in fear of such a weapon being
directed at them. Did he regret it later? Absolutely, but that was why HE allowed himself to do it. In the beginning, it was actually meant to help
Now, aside from those LITERALLY stuck continuing the work they've begun, it's very rare for a member of any team to have the actual intention that
what they work on would ever be used on another human being. It's either to stop the fighting, or cause less harm to be done in terms of personnel
life. Life either for this country, or against. Commercial enterprises like Northrup... well, that's different. War means money for them. But
facilities like darpa? Medical break throughs intended from the very beginning to help others are tested there. Lasic surgery as one example.
Is it better one man bombs a room of 12 others, or for that one man to be stopped? Loss of life either way is horrible, but the world is in a state
where if one weapon exists, another must be made to counter it. 9 times out of 10, our weapons are in counter to those other nations are currently
testing. You're just not told about these things.
Other than that, real,TRUE innovations anymore will always be twisted if "need" arises.
