A Response To Blinking Iranians by The Gentleman Punk
While I agree with most of Keln's points, truly the man is a gentleman and a scholar, I have to disagree with his proposal that we use precision bombs, at least in so far as we use conventional weapons. I'm a technocrat as well as a cultural elitist and while terrorists are prone to using technology they can not manufacture to try and destroy their enemies we make a clear and undeniable statement when we push the destructive capabilities of science and technology.
That is why I say we need to invest more in to NASA as well as DARPA. I have a dream, and it is a dream of orbital satellite systems carrying kinetic strike weapons and ionizing lasers. Thunder, lightning and earthquakes, ours to command, so we can make the dirty little savages fear us more than the puny wrath of their heathen gods.
Yes, mine is a dream of a day when instead of praying to Mecca they pray to Washington in hopes of being spared our righteous fury, and George Washington's face is seen as the face of a wrathful, old testament god. Yes, I dream of a day when turban wearing jihadis sacrifice their louder and more aggressive compatriots to the Holy Ghosts of the CIA rather than face our command of elemental forces to express our wrath. Peace through superior firepower, for as Saint George of Virginia said, the best way to secure peace is by preparing for war!
