Telegraph: "Microwave weapons that cause pain without lasting injury are to be issued to American troops in Iraq for the first time as concern mounts over the growing number of civilians killed in fighting.
The non-lethal weapons, which use high-powered electromagnetic beams, will be fitted to vehicles already in Iraq, which will allow the system to be introduced as early as next year.
..."It just feels like your skin is on fire," he said. "[But] when you get out of the path of the beam, or shut off the beam, everything goes back to normal. There's no residual pain.""
It's all for the cause, citizens. Don't be alarmed. We don't want to kill too many more innocent civilians. Sorry about the 20-30,000 we accidentally carpet bombed. We'll take out some more of those heavy duty, working clocks in your schools and replace them with cheap shit clocks courtesy of Halliburton.
