Yeah, because this has absolutely no war benefits at all, nor does it have anything to do with "minding our own business."

Oh wait, none of your claim can be connected at all with the article.

Anything can be tied to war benefits you twit. Its people driven. Even you.

That's my point genius. You're making the claim that we could invent this if we stopped fighting wars. Instead, something like this could easily be usable in a military application. Calm yourself.

The point was that we are dropping almost a trillion a year in a field dedicated to war. Yes, lots of innovation comes out of it. But so does a ton of waste and nonsense.

I dont think we need anymore military applications. We can wipe the entire planet off the map if the will was there. Like a football player fighting a little kid. Not much reason for the football player to keep doing the roids.
