actually, from the way i read it, they do want to use it against people at war, at least that was it's initial conception was, but they want to "test it" first to make sure it won't cause waves in the international community for harming people too much and being unsafe. so what's their answer? test on your own countrymen first! i'm sure that's exactly what the terrorists would love to see. you know, we have to be careful of their feelings too, we don't want to inadvertantly hurt them. again, all i can say is wow. i'm just glad to know i'm not the only one that sees the shock and awe of this. thanks.
