14th Amendment, no question about it:
It matters not the "technological" state of that weaponry.

If you say so. It is our expertise with technology that has borne us along till now, though. This has to be one of the prime movers behind our drive to control nations don't you think? I mean obviously we don't outnumber our adversaries, we just out- "class" them. Meaning we have better weapons and the skill to employ them.
Weapons are the force multiplier.

The War on Drugs (begun in 1914) with its programs of foreign aid and military intervention, the top-down corruption as a result, dumping drugs on American city streets to fund illegal war operations, and the resultant loss of privacy and personal liberties with intrusions into our homes with intent to side-step due process in a zeal for property and asset forfeiture. Success is measured by how many people are incarcerated and how many new prisons are built. This "War" inflates prices to astronomical proportions of what would otherwise be a nearly worthless commodity in a free market but which under prohibition now offers huge profits to anyone willing to be corrupted by this market.
