Full blown blackout–coming to a war theater near you. That’s what Boeing is claiming after testing its new CHAMP technology (the acronym stands for Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project – how’s that for creativity?). Think ‘mini-EMP’ at the push of a button.
I particularly love the language referring to a ‘non-kinetic’ alternative. Remember that Obama has called bombing campaigns nothing more than ‘kinetic actions’. It’s like when doctors refer to major surgeries as ‘procedures’.
