    We went medieval in our missile technology.

    I'm glad they point out that it was developed at the request of Pres Obama.

    It had "blades". How inhumane to decapitate an ISIS dude with blades.

    damn. At what point do we just have a 50 bmg or 7.62 Nato loaded into a guided missile that can get close, home in and then blast the bad guy. Hell for that matter put it on a drone

    The article mentioned a 2.75 inch guided missile they called a "sniper round". Ever see a 75mm sniper round?

    I was watching you tube vids 10 years ago where someone mounted a 1911 on a drone, imagine what they can do now.

    My son has a friend that went to work for Raytheon in their Optics division 15yrs ago, there is definitely some next level stuff coming

    Do we actually have those? Are they up there already waiting to be deployed? I thought maybe they were a rumor.

    Rods of God was mentioned on a military armament TV show about 25 years ago. I think its very plausible that we have them. I'd like to think we do, but probably don't.
