12/5    Romney is right after all -- our military does need more horses and
        bayonets!  Romney for 2012!
        \_ I'd never considered Romney's campaign as an ad for Revolution,
           but I guess that makes as much sense anything else.
        \_ The tax cut removal is ill timed.
        \_ holy crap. This is scary. US troops are most vulnerable as it is
           highly dependent on technology (satellite, night vision, complex
           communications, drones, ...). You know what country is going to
           do well after massive EMP strikes? 3rd world countries with
           huge population.
           \_ That's how Communist China kept us from winning the Korean War.

        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

11/6    Four more years!
        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.
           \_ Can't argue with that.

A missile used high power microwaves to knock out computers and electronics without damaging buildings during a US test on Oct. A successful missile test has ushered in a new era of warfare in which the US military can take out electronic targets without destroying a single building. experimental missile fired bursts of high-power microwaves at several target buildings to fry the computers and electrical systems inside during a test at the Utah Test and Training Range on Oct. Such results signaled success for the Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) created by Boeing Phantom Works and the US Air Force Research Laboratory. "In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy's electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive," said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works. The idea of using microwaves or electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) to knock out electronic systems without having to reduce cities or military bases to rubble first arose during Cold War nuclear tests. Nuclear explosions created EMPs that unexpectedly damaged some civilian power grids and facilities. That spawned the military dream of a nonlethal takedown weapon that could disable an enemy's radar, communications and targeting computers -- effectively leaving them blind and unable to respond effectively to follow-up attacks by regular military forces. Such weapons could prove especially useful when assaulting enemies hidden in heavily populated cities or towns without causing civilian casualties. microwave weapons represented an impossible dream as recently as last month. The CHAMP missile's microwaves proved so effective during the recent test that they knocked out some of the cameras used to record video footage of rows of computers blinking off. CHAMP went on to hit seven targets during the one-hour test. CHAMP's three-year, $38 million program could eventually deploy up to five prototype missiles. The latest testing seems to suggest that Boeing and the Air Force have succeeded in creating a functional missile capable of taking out many targets with multiple shots.

Eric X o 1 mth 11 days ago I often wondered why we didn't use EMP weapons in Iraq instead of bombing their grid. It would have been cheaper and quicker as a few of them would wipe-out not only their power but also their communications and back ups all at once.

"There's lots of smoke and mirrors," says Peter Zimmerman, an emeritus nuclear physicist at King's College London and former chief scientist of the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency in Washington DC. Although future research may yield scientific progress, he adds, "I cannot see they will build a useful, deployable weapon". LindaL o 1 mth 11 days ago The trouble with developing this sort of technology (which is bound to be copied elsewhere before long) is that America has a far greater amount of vulnerable electronic systems that most of America's enemies do. with $1B Apple scheme A trader from New York has been charged in a scheme that involved the unauthorized purchase of about $1 billion of Apple stock that wound up costing his Connecticut-based employer $5 million, federal prosecutors ...

Obama Just Gave Boehner a Taste of His Own Fiscal Medicine on McConnell Idea One of the most controversial measures in President Obama's opening bid on the fiscal cliff was a proposal to strip Congress of the power to approve the raising of the debt ceiling.
