Thanks for posting that link CJ.  It is a very interesting article. I would like to see updates on the types of weapons they are discussing. Do you know of any out there?

Not sure if this fits better here or in misc.  

The article is getting a little dated but still very interesting.  Especially considering the comments about the weapons again seem to popping up in the more "mainstream" media.

I saw an article just in the last few days about this very thing... and about the possibility of the US using it in Iraq.

It's from February 2, 2003.
